NAPLES — Frances J. (Mayo) Myers, 93, passed away after a brief illness on Wednesday, Jan. 29, 2014.

She was best known by her family as “Diddy,” a nickname her brother gave her as a child.

She was born on Nov. 14, 1920 in Westbrook, a daughter of Cliff and Rose Mayo. Frances worked many jobs throughout her life, mostly as a bookkeeper. She enjoyed summers on Coffee Pond and later retired with her husband in Naples 28 years ago. Over the course of her life she loved sewing, cooking, reading, fishing and gardening. After becoming legally blind 10 years ago, she continued to look on the bright side of things. Listening to her audio books, spending time with her neighbor and attending church were her favorite things to do. She loved Jesus, her home and the life she built with her husband. Her favorite saying was “Focus on the good stuff.”

In addition to her parents, Frances was predeceased by her sister, Louise Mayo; and her brother, Edward Mayo.

She is survived by her husband of 63 years, Frank; nephews and nieces.
