Former Paris resident Frances Arnett of Ashland City, Tenn., died peacefully at home on November 8, 2009.

She was born in Paris on May 16, 1931, to John B. Arnett and Bertie Easley Arnett Field.

She found great joy and solace living on her 40 acres with her horses. She made beautiful handcrafts from her found objects. She was a pioneering spirit, who found her passion through gardening, cooking and living from the land.
