She was born on August 10, 1937, to Edgar and Vada Carroll in Lampasas, Texas.   She grew up in Lampasas, Texas along with 8 siblings, which she was the oldest. She helped raise her brothers and sisters at a very young age. She loved to tell stories about growing up in a different time. She often told a story about her grandfather giving her 25 cents to go to the movies and get a drink, popcorn, and gum and still have money left over.  She married Art Gayton and moved to Ravenna, Ohio for a short while, where she learned her famous Date Nut cake recipe that has now been passed on for generations. She moved back to Texas where she met and married Thomas Kiser. Where she raised a blended family of seven. Later in life she married Platt LaComb.  She was ready to help anyone that was in need. She always had an open door. In Waco she would put on a pot of beans and most of the neighborhood kids wanted a bowl of her beans, fried potatoes, and cornbread.  Frances was an amazing bowler.

She was a fierce domino player where she could tell what you had in your hand.  When she wasn't a homemaker, she worked at San Angelo State School, did tire-testing and later worked at River Crest Hospital from where she retired.  She found the biggest joy in all her grandchildren, great grandchildren, and great-great grandchildren.   Frances is survived by her sister Sue and Larry Carmack of Taylor., her children Arthur and Sally Kiser, Curtis Kiser, Becky Kiser, Charlene Kiser McDonald, Glenda Kiser and George Brashear all of San Angelo.
