Frances Johnson Sherman, daughter of the late Joe and Earleen Johnson, was born in the Bucksport section of Horry County on March 26, 1946. Frank, as she was affectionately called by family and close friends, departed this earthly life at 1:30 AM on Thursday, May 07, 2021 at Prince George Nursing Facility. She attended school for a short time in the Horry County Schools district. Frances gave her life to Christ at a very young age. She became a member of Jerusalem Missionary Baptist Church where she joined the Senior Choir.
Frances was the youngest sister of seven siblings, a role that would come with the early responsibility as a caregiver. She was a confident role model and friend to her loving nephews, nieces, cousins, and anyone who she could share her love and home with. Frances loved to cook and was always preparing a hot meal to feed everyone. Her home was always open to family members in need of a place to stay. Frances was a hardworking and dedicated employee of the AVX Corporation until she retired in 2005.
