DUDLEY – Frances S. (Stone) Bond, 86, of Alton Drive, died Saturday, November 25, 2023, in her home.  She was predeceased by her husband, Stanley E. Bond of Dudley who died in 1993.  She is survived by eight children, Debra A. Dauphin of Charlton, Alan L. Bond and his wife Maryann of Thompson, CT, Gary W. Bond of Dudley, Glen S. Bond and his wife Joann of Webster, Tammy J. Mancuso and her husband Mark of Oxford, Sandra L. Wilga and her husband Gary of Thompson, CT, Penny L. Buffone and her husband Ronald of Oxford, and James E. Bond and his wife Kim of Charlton; her sister, Bettyann Ellis and her husband Milton of Sun City, FL; her sisters-in-law, Jean Stone and Lila Towle, both of Charlton; 19 grandchildren, 16 great-grandchildren, and several nieces and nephews.  She was predeceased by a brother, Donald Stone; and two sisters, Nancy Prunier and Elda Langway.  She also leaves her cockatiel who was with her for 30 years, Woody.  She was born in Oxford, daughter of the late Everett and Cora (Davis) Stone, and lived in Charlton and Oxford before moving to Dudley 69 years ago.  She graduated from Charlton High School.

Mrs. Bond worked as an upholsterer at Ethan Allen in Dudley for over 25 years, retiring in 2001.  Previously, she worked at Empire Laundry in Dudley for 15 years.  She enjoyed caring for her home and family as a stay-at-home mom for many years.  She played in a women’s pitch league and was an accomplished seamstress.  She enjoyed reading the newspaper, sudoku, knitting, puzzles, and watching soap operas.  Her grandchildren were her pride and joy, and she loved attending all of their sporting events.  Most of all, she enjoyed Sunday dinners and spending time with her family members who would visit.

The family would like to thank Kayla, Donna, and Kathy, for their exceptional care over the past several weeks.  It takes a special person to do their job – they are angels among us.
