Frankie Boshears Obituary

Frankie Terry Boshears accepted her heavenly reward on November 5, 2023 at the age of 94. She was born on March 9, 1929 in Caryville, Tennessee to the late Leatha and Melton Terry. She met her husband Hugh after his time in the Army and attended Jacksboro High School. She ran her own little grocery store in the neighborhood for 10 years. Everyone came for lunch to eat her great sandwiches.

Frankie was a faithful Christian who loved singing in a trio with her late sister-in-law, Virginia Boshears, and her late friend, Betty Fowler Padgett. She was a member of Woodlake Baptist Church. Attending church was a favorite duty until her health began to decline.
