Both Joseph and Frances Langley graduated from John Brown University in 1937. After graduation, they married and settled in Houston, Texas. Frances and Joe raised twins, Jeannine and Joe Bert. Joseph passed away in 1979. After her husband’s death, Frances created an endowed scholarship at JBU in his memory to help financially needy students.   She was faithful to JBU as she hosted those connected to the University, attended many JBU Homecomings, and organized Houston alumni meetings. She also requested that upon her death gifts should be made to her endowed scholarship in lieu of flowers. Frances was committed to helping others. She passed away in 1996.
