Frances Thompson

June 16, 1967 - August 25, 2020

Frances Thompson, age 53, of Mahnomen, MN, died on Tuesday, August 25, 2020 at the Mahnomen Health Center Nursing Home.

Frances "Francine" Lynn Thompson was born on June 16, 1967, in Minneapolis, MN, the daughter of Richard Boswell and Sandra Thompson. For most of her education, she attended school in Minneapolis, as the family often moved between Minneapolis and Naytahwaush throughout her childhood years. Frances met the love of her life, Bruce Sherman, and the family made their home in Naytahwaush, MN. They were blessed with two children, Nathanial and Brandi. Bruce and Frances shared many wonderful years together before his death in 2003. The family continued to make their home in Naytahwaush with the addition of a son, Frankie.

Frances was known to be a very organized and tidy person, both at home and at work. She was employed as a housekeeper for many years at Shooting Star Casino Hotel, Holiday Inn, and Cass Lake Motel. In her spare time, Frances enjoyed trips to the casino, and spending time with her friends, but most importantly, being around family, especially her grandkids. She will be missed by all who knew and loved her.

Frances is survived by her children: Nathanial Sherman of Minneapolis, Brandi Sherman of Mahnomen, and Frank Bradley Thompson of Naytahwaush, MN; and 6 grandchildren; two sisters, Caroline Boswell of Mahnomen, and Ursula Boswell of Naytahwaush; three nieces; and four nephews.

Frances is preceded in death by the love of her life, Bruce; her parents, Richard and Sandra; and a brother, Richard "Cricket" Boswell.
