Frankie L. Vontress, 95, passed quietly at her home on May 28, 2012.

Frankie leaves to cherish her memories three children, Mingo (Charlyn) Vontress, Felicia Skipper and Matoka (Eddie) Nunn; 18 grandchildren, Manuelito (Royal) Skipper, Montoya Skipper, Mancha Skipper, Mankia (Sindja) Skipper, April (Lionel) Barnes, Autumn Skipper, Edward Nunn, Nathan (LaShay) Nunn, Maurice Nunn, Jennelle (Darnell) Williams, John Nunn, Whitney Maxwell, Brittany Cox, Elaine Vontress, Mingo Joseph Vontress Jr., Layla Allen, Madison Vontress and Elizabeth Vontress; and a host of other family and friends.

Frankie was preceded in death by her husband, John L. Vontress; sisters, Jessie Marshall, Margurite Fishback, Gladys Faulker, Alice Davis, Ollie Vass, Myrtle Ruth Vontress and Cora Gray; and brothers, Harry D. Lillard and Joseph A. Lillard.
