Frances Mittie Brintle Bolick

Mrs. Frances Mittie Brintle Bolick, 84, of White Plains, passed away at Heartfields at Cary in Cary on Monday afternoon, January 1, 2024.

 

Born January 15, 1939, in Surry County, she was the daughter of the late Charles Bynum Brintle, Sr. and Mary Kate Jones Brintle.  Frances graduated from White Plains School and then Appalachian State University, where she obtained a bachelor’s degree in English – Language Arts.

 

Mrs. Bolick served as a fifth-grade teacher at Beulah Elementary School and an eighth-grade ELA teacher at J. Sam Gentry Middle School.  She touched the lives of many students as she shared with them her love of literature and The Statler Brothers.

 

As an active member of White Plains Friends Meeting, she served on several committees, including Ministry and Counsel for many years, and was a member of the choir.  She was an American Red Cross Blood Drive volunteer and hosted many blood drives in the White Plains community.  She also served as a volunteer at Northern Surry Hospital, where she was Volunteer of the Year.  It was evident that she had the heart of a servant as she visited others who were homebound in her community.

 

She is survived by her son, Frank Bolick and his special friend, Tracie Hedrick; her daughter, Katie Bolick; her grandson, Daniel Surratt and his wife, Anna Surratt; her granddaughter, Jessica Bolick Cockerham and her husband, Jeremiah Cockerham; her great-grandchildren, Calvin Surratt, Etta Kate Surratt, and Benjamin Cockerham; and four great-stepgrandchildren, Breana, Nathaniel, Jordan, and Makayla Cockerham.

 

She is also survived by a sister, Cinnie Sue Brintle Cobbler; a special sister-in-law, Nadine Bolick Williard; and a sister-in-law, Glenda Riggans Brintle.

 

In addition to her parents, Mrs. Bolick was preceded in death by her husband, Benjamin Franklin Bolick, Jr.; two sisters and brothers-in-law, Rachel Ann and Charles McBrayer, Jr. and Mary Lou and June Link; a brother-in-law, James Cobbler; two brothers and sisters-in-law, Charles Bynum Brintle, Jr. and Blanche Atkins Brintle and Thomas Yancey Brintle; and a sister-in-law, Mandy Norman Brintle.

 

A service of worship and celebration of Mrs. Bolick’s life will be held Sunday, January 7, 2024, at 2:00 PM at White Plains Friends Meeting, with the Rev. Jake Penley officiating.  Burial will follow in the church cemetery.  The family will receive friends Sunday from 1:00 until 2:00 PM at the church before the funeral service.  In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to White Plains Friends Meeting, 849 Old Highway 601, Mount Airy, NC  27030; Mountain Valley Hospice and Palliative Care, 1427 Edgewood Drive, Suite 101, Mount Airy, NC  27030; or The Children’s Center of Northwest North Carolina, P.O.
