She was preceded in death by her parents, her oldest daughter Sandra Thornton and her husband Alfred ‘Daniel’ Segelquist.

Frankie and Daniel married and lived in Alvin, Texas until he retired and moved first to Fredricksburg and then to Flatonia. In 2019 she moved to her daughter and son-in-law’s in Hockley, Texas and finally to Memory Lane Assisted Living in Magnolia, Texas.

Frankie welcomed her huge family and friends with open arms. She was a loving and giving person. She always had a “twinkle” in her eyes and loved being around people. She enjoyed reading, sewing and quilting. More than anything else, Frankie loved God. Even with dementia she was delighted to hear about the Lord Jesus and took great joy and comfort in her strong faith. She loved listening to Jim Reeves Gospel songs almost daily.

She was a very active member of Zion Lutheran Church in Schulenburg, Texas. While living with her daughter in Hockley, Texas she regularly visited LifeBridge Missouri Synod Lutheran Church in Cypress, Texas.

A memorial service will be held at Zion Lutheran Church in Schulenburg, Texas, on Friday, July 16, 2021 at 2:00 p.m. with a small luncheon to follow.
