Frankie was born on Nov. 20, 1926 in Kaufman to parents William Austin and Eula Dotsy (Countryman) Dunson and entered into eternal rest on Sept. 25, 2018 at age 91. Frankie had her first job working for J.W. Gent in his ice cream parlor and then went on to work on the family farm. She worked for NOWA as a weather watcher, with Harold Taft, for 30 years. Later in her life she worked for Anderson-Clayton Bros. in Kaufman for 10-plus years. Frankie was baptized in 1938 at Oak Grove Baptist Church by her uncle, Rev. D.C. Dunson. In 1950, she transferred her membership to First Baptist in Kaufman and then to Calvary Baptist in May 2007. Frankie was a member of Eastern Star and a Cub Scout leader. She loved garage sales and shopping, especially for jewelry. Frankie was an amazing lady who will be missed by all who knew and loved her.
