FRANCES FLEWELLEN OF FREEHOLD, NJ IS THE BETTER MADE SNACK FOODS MOTHER OF THE YEAR CONTEST WINNER
* The winning nomination essay was submitted by daughter Ashley Flewellen
FREEHOLD, NEW JERSEY – Ms. Frances Flewellen of Freehold, New Jersey is the hands down winner in the 2012 Better Made Snack Foods Mother of the Year
contest! The winning essay was submitted by her adopted daughter, Ashley Flewellen, also of Freehold, NJ, and for that, Frances will receive a sampler box containing 15 bags of different delicious Better Made products.
“My mom, Frances, is the most kind-hearted, good-spirited, patient, beautiful, intelligent, and loving person that I have ever met,” says Ashley. “In 2006, she was diagnosed with Thyroid cancer, yet she pulled through and beat it! She never seemed to be scared and made sure that she stayed strong for the family. I honor her for that and I am so happy that she is still living today.”
“She has worked in Special Education for over 15 years, working with children in wheelchairs, children Autism and Down Syndrome, among many other disabilities. She absolutely loves and strives at what she does. At our church, she works for an organization called the Harvest of Hope, which helps to provide foster children with homes. She loves this field of work, because she adopted me when I was only 2 months old, and she herself was adopted by her mom when she was younger than that. Her heart goes out to these kids because she understands them.”
“My mom is truly an inspiration, no matter what ups or downs our family is going through - she never stops loving or trying. Her love is unconditional, and I just hope that I can be half the woman she is when I get older. Her passion for everything that she does in life radiates and you can tell it upon first meeting her. She will bend over backwards for anyone that she encounters. Her loving spirit will never cease to exist,” says her loving daughter Ashley.
