Is Frances Yarborough Married Or Single? How Was Her Married Life With Actor Don Knotts?

Frances Yarborough was once a married woman. And later, she stayed single and lived a very low-key from the spotlight. Many of Don's fans are wondering if Frances is still alive. She had shared the matrimony vows with her late husband and comedian, Don Knotts, an American actor.

The pair first met in the 1980s when they worked together on the sitcom What a Country! At that time, he was divorced for some time. The pair did not initiate love immediately but it was only after many years later they fell for one another and married in 2002.

Their connection couldn't last for long and finalized the divorce in 1983.  The latter's relationship lasted until February 24, 2006, until his death. He was 81 years old at the time of his passing.

After her husband died, the celebrity wife slowly disappeared from the limelight. Thus, it became a mystery as to what else she was up to now.
