Donor: Frances Langley

Established: 1980

Frances Langley graduated from John Brown University in 1937.  After graduation, she married Joseph W. Langley and they settled in Houston, Texas.  Frances and Joe raised twins, Jeannine and Joe Bert.  She was committed to the work and people of South Main Baptist Church.  She was also faithful to JBU as she hosted those connected to the University, attended many JBU Homecomings, and organized Houston alumni meetings.  After her husband’s death, Frances created an endowed scholarship at JBU in his memory to help financially needy students.   She also requested that upon her death gifts should be made to her endowed scholarship in lieu of flowers.  Frances was always thinking of how she could help others.  She passed away in 1996.
