A woman of God, Frankie was raised in the church and was baptized at a young age. Over the years she worshiped at Macedonia Baptist Church and Pilgrims Rest.

Frankie had a wonderful sense of humor and was the life of the party. She was a great cook and enjoyed people. Her signature dish was her delicious German Chocolate and Checkerboard cake. She was also a gifted seamstress, making a great deal of her sonโ€™s clothes when they were growing up. They were well dressed young men. Frankie was known for her extra-long fingernails.

  4. Dear Family
    I am most saddened to learn of Frankie’s passing — we were classmates in our youth. My family knew Frankie’s entire family —
    She was a joyful person to know and love. Frankie was a member of “Circle of Friends” members were classmates and/or neighbors from our beloved East Denver neighborhoods. Frankie and I had a special/sisterly relationship and I will always cherish those great memories of yesterday.
    May my dear friend Frankie – RIH.
    Sincerely
    Bellverie Lurppage Ross
