Fran Allison (Macy) SmithSeptember 26, 1951 ~ December 21, 2017 (age 66)
Ms. Fran Allison Smith, 66, went to be with the Lord on December 21, 2017, while close friends and family were by her side. She was preceded in death by her loving husband, Steve R. Smith.
Fran was born September 26, 1951, to the late Sylvia Marie Macy and Thomas Macy.
Fran was a faithful member of White Oak Grove Missionary Baptist Church. She was a loving mother and a devoted friend, and a mother to many she adopted into her family, who lovingly referred to her as “Ma Fran.” She loved to dance and listen to oldie goldies along with her late husband and grandchildren. Although she battled with COPD during most of her adult life, she did not allow it to define her life. She was a strong woman and a fighter at heart and always did what she could to help others even during her worst days. She had a unique sense of humor and lived her life to the fullest. She loved visiting the beach with her grands and close friends. She would always go out of her way to help anyone in need and treated others with love and kindness. She was loved by many.
She is survived by her four daughters, Dorie Lang (Scott), Felicia Maynard (George), Carmen Maynard (Lynell), and Katina Maynard (Louis); son, Joshua Maynard (June), 14 grandchildren; 12 great grandchildren; two brothers, Frank Macy (Linda) and Michael Macy; aunt, Doris Watson (Larry); a host of nieces and nephews; longtime very close friends, Teresa Timmons, Rita Teague, and Kimberly Matthews; and her close companion and protector, her dog, Love.
Her homegoing service will take place on Thursday, December 28, 2017, 12:00 pm, at White Oak Grove Missionary Baptist Church, 2600 Assembly Road, Greensboro, NC. The family will receive visitors at her home at 1611 McKnight Mill Road, Greensboro, NC.
In lieu of flowers, the family ask that donations be made to Hospice of Greensboro, 2500 Summit Ave., Greensboro, NC.
