FRANCES CULBERT

Born May 2, 1919 in Centralia, Washington to Mary and Mike Nick, Frances passed away February 20, 2017 at the age of 97. She was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, sister and friend who will be truly missed by her three devoted daughters, Christine Mobley, Barbara Culbert and Linda Culbert Hall; her grandson, Jeffrey Mobley; sister, Rosina McCarthy (John); nieces, nephews and cousins. Known by all as a grand lady, she always had a great perspective on life, a positive attitude and a generous heart.

Upon graduation from Centralia High School, Frances moved from the family farm to Seattle, where she graduated from the Metropolitan Business College

and pursued further business courses at the University of Washington. She worked in the now historic Seattle Smith Tower and Lloyd Building during her

early career and retired from Michigan’s Farmington Public Schools in 1977, where she was a dedicated and loved employee.

Her travels as an army wife led her to other locations, including North Carolina and California, where she spent many happy retirement years, in San Francisco, with her husband of 59 years, USA Colonel Roy F. Culbert, before they returned

to Seattle to reside in Bothell.

She was a true inspiration in life to all who knew her and the rock that held her family together. She always saw the best in everyone and every situation. Her joyful spirit and loving manner will be dearly missed and fondly remembered by all.

Frances is predeceased by her loving husband, her sister Marie Smith and nephew Bruce Hamilton.
