Frances "Frankie" Louise Freeman was born on January 12, 1939 to Clara Caruthers and James Telliferro In Murfreesboro, TN.

Frankie received her education at a technical school in Bridgeport, Alabama. Frankie worked as a welder at Motorola in Chicago, IL and also at Samsonite. However, she mostly loved her job as a stay-at-home mother and grandmother. Frankie's favorite color was purple. She loved traveling, playing cards, going to yard sales, being with family, going out to eat, attending social gatherings, and mostly preaching in the Kingdom Ministry. She began serving as a full-time pioneer in September 1987, then later as a special pioneer.

Frankie dedicated her life to Jehovah on July 4, 1975 in Huntsville, AL. She would talk to anyone that she met up until "O'dark thirty" about Jehovah and his Kingdom. Frankie aided many people to come to know Jehovah. She traveled to many places such as Brazil andPanama to attend International Conventions. Frankie's greatest joy was working in the ministry, conducting Bible Studies, applying Bible application, attending Christian Meetings and social gatherings. Frankie met all kinds of people and formed lasting friendships. Frankie's greatest hope and comfort was seeing her mother again with the Bible's promise at
Revelation 21 :4.Frankie is proceeded in death by her mother, Clara Caruthers; aunt, Myrtle Drake; stepfather, Royal Caruthers; and granddaughter, Chelseia Batey.
