The Spring 1936 edition of The Smock Pocket, the Vancouver School of Art Graduates' Association newsletter of which Gatewood was one of the editors, noted that Gatewood was also the President of the Graduates' Association, and that she had studied ceramics in California for the previous two summers. She was sharing a studio with Dorothy Burnett at the Craft Centre Studio at 575 Dunsmuir Street. In 1937 she returned to study in California again.
Gatewood was living in West Vancouver when she died in 1991 at the age of 88. She was single, her occupation noted as "Teacher - Education."

"In the handicraft section this year Frances Gatewood
has the field almost to herself. She is showing pottery and leather work, and has
included two original sample tiles."
From "Pasovas Art Show" Vancouver Sun, November 6 1934
"Frances Gatewood is responsible for the lovely pieces of pottery
in many varieties of form and color that are to be seen there."
From "GRADUATES IN ART" by Cintra
(unknown newspaper), April 25 1936
"Frances Gatewood has been a frequent contributor to these shows in
pottery. Miss Gatewood has been studying advanced ceramics in California again
this year. She brings back turquoise designs in bowls and coffee brewers which
would charm the heart of any housewife."
