Frances Barbara Helferich of Ocala, Fl, born May 24, 1957, passed away on July 9, 2018.  Frances was born to Robert Eugene and Mary Ellen Hewitt.  She leaves behind her loving husband of 39 years, James Earnest Helferich. She was a loving wife, mother, sister and daughter. Frances radiated kindness and had a voracious appetite for reading, passed down from her parents as a small child and which she passed down to her children. She spent many hours reading to them when they were young and continued to patronize our Ocala library headquarters late into her life. She took great joy in the simple pleasures of life, such as working diligently in her garden, tending to her rose bushes and gardenias, which she planted to bloom every April in celebration of her daughters birth. She was a gentle, kindhearted soul whose entire being existed around the care of her husband and children.  Her memory will be cherished and will be truly missed by all who knew her spirit.
