Happy Birthday, Frankie!  Our WLAF neighbor here on North 5th Street, Frankie Ivey Bacon (above) at Tabatha Smith’s State Farm Agency, celebrates her 91st birthday today.

Until Terina Brown pulled out the calculator, we all thought Frankie is 92.   Frankie said that she and her husband Albert have been married 72-years.  She didn’t need a calculator for that.

Frankie still puts in a full week at the insurance office and is proud to let you know that she has five grandchildren and nine great grandchildren. She also has two sons, Ron and Vaughn.

She grew up on East Ash Street and attended La Follette High School when it was next to First Baptist Church. Frankie graduated in 1945.

Best to you Frankie. …and many more!  (WLAF NEWS PUBLISHED – 10/11/2018-6AM)
