Obituary

Frances Louise Bidle

A celebration of the life of Frances Louise Bidle will be held on October 16, 2019 at Purse Funeral Home in Tecumseh, MI. Frances would want it known that she entered into Heaven's gates peacefully, pain free and without illness. She loved and enjoyed her family and it showed. She lived in FL for the past 20 years with her daughter, Lori, and was proud to say that she enjoyed the sunshine.  Frances was born on May 29, 1921, in Michigan to Walter and Josephine Prielipp. A homemaker, she is remembered by her immaculate home and delicious food creations, especially over the holidays. (We can almost smell the homemade cinnamon rolls now.) For many years leading up to her passing, she collected a library of cookbooks, novels and her birds. She loved to watch food tutorials and cooking channels during her spare time. She was a lady of limitless energy and a strong sense of duty who believed in the importance of a safe, secure and healthy environment for her family.  Frances was preceded in death by her Mother and Father, and her loving husband Ivan Bidle. She was most proud of, and is survived by, her son Max Bidle of West Hurley, NY, daughter Lori Watters (Jeffrey) of Riverview, FL, granddaughter Crystal Camden (Matthew) of Lakewood Ranch, FL, grandson Nathan Watters of Miami, FL, brother; Marvin (Barb) Prielipp of Deerfield, MI and many nieces and nephews, cousins and friends.  For those who have known Frances in her fruitful and joyful journey, the family requests your attendance at her graveside service at the Deerfield Cemetery. The family wishes to thank those who have extended support for Frances over the years and especially during her final days. Funeral services will be 2:00 P.M. Wednesday, October 16, 2019 at J. Gilbert Purse Funeral Home, Tecumseh with Rev. Gary Leking officiating.  Burial will follow in Deerfield, Cemetery, Deerfield, MIVisitation will be 5:00 to 8:00 P. M. Tuesday, October 15, 2019 at the J. Gilbert Purse Funeral Home, Tecumseh and one hour before to the service on Wednesday.  Condolences to the family may be made online at www.pursefuneralhome.com.

"Mom and grandma, you have given us so much and asked for so little in return. Thank you for always being there for us, for teaching us, listening to us, helping and forgiving us, loving us, and always paving the way for us. We will work hard to reach the standard that you have set. Farewell sweet Mama and Grandma. You were simply magnificent."
