Frances Irene Skeene, 43, of Ponchatoula, Louisiana, formally of Harlan, KY went to her heavenly home and into the arms of her father on Tuesday, January 21, 2015, after a long illness.

Frannie (as she like to be called), was born on October 21, 1971 to Dannie and Ernestine Skeene in Chicago, IL, where she lived until her father’s illness, that brought them back to KY.  Frannie was a city gal who became a country gal, with her love of fishing and camping.  Having no children of her own, she found joy in the love, laughter, and smiles of her nieces and nephews whom she considered her children.  Frannie recently found the love of her life in Louisiana with Jim Galuhn.  He was her everything and will always be a part of our family.

Frannie is preceded in death by her grandparents, Ira Dennis Skeene and Elvira Mumford Skeene, Philmore and Vina Hall, her father, Dannie Eugene Skeene, and a sister, Frances Yavonne Skeene, and a brother-in-law, Gary W. Napier.

She is survived by her fiancée, Jim Galuhn of Ponchatoula Louisiana, and her beloved pet Baroo.  Her mother, Ernestine Skeene of Evarts, KY.  She is also survived by 7 brothers and sisters, Debra (Johnny) Collett of New Tazewell, TN, Carl (Judy) Skeene of Lafollette, TN, Cathy (Mike) Laws of Kitts, KY, Dannie (Michelle) Skeene of Citeronell, AL, Jimmy Skeene and Barbara Skeene of Evarts, KY and Nicole (Ralph) Skeene of Harlan, KY.  She is also survived by 38 nieces and nephews and a host of great-nieces and great-nephews, Aunts, Uncles, and cousins that she loved dearly and who loved her more than she will ever know.

A memorial service will be conducted Thursday, January 29, 2015 at 2:00 PM in the Chapel of Anderson-Laws and Jones Funeral Home.  The Rev. H. L. Farley and Sonny Harris will officiate the services.
