Frances later married a Mr. Jubb, but not in County Durham, as her marriage does not appear on the index to marriages in the county.

She lived in Close House, Bishop Auckland until 1992, when she moved to a bedsit in Shildon. She died in 1998, in Portland House Nursing Home in Willington. A close friend and neighbour wrote that only her sister-in-law, her cousin and a few friends had been present at Frances' funeral.
