Frankie D. Gosney, Age: 77
Aug 22, 1942 - Jun 17, 2020

Frankie Doris Gosney left this earth to be with her Lord on June 17, 2020. She fought a short, yet courageous battle against cancer. Her faith never wavered.


Feisty Frankie was born to Frank Kilgore and Zelma Hawkins Kilgore on August 22, 1942. She was born in Mountain View Arkansas, a place that her family cherished. She took her daughters often for vacation, to learn their heritage. Evenings on the square, dancing, singing, and enjoying music was imprinted on her family's soul. Her smile was infectious and no one will forget her that ever met her.


Her love for her family was fierce. She did not know the meaning of no. She loved hard, she loved strong, and she never held her opinion back. Fortunately/ unfortunately her daughters inherited that trait.


She worked hard for her entire life to make sure that her daughters did not want for anything and taught them both a very hard work ethic. She taught them they were capable and happy


She loved to travel and experience new things and have new adventures.  Even when mobility slowed her down, she would not stop.  She wanted to go zip lining and she did.  She loved it!  She would let us have friends over at the house and we would move furniture and dance to Saturday Night Fever. We would ask the question “Momma Frankie are you tired”, and she would say “I will be tired as soon as the boys go home”.  She made our nights fun even when we were snowed in on New Year's Eve and she brought a box of crackers into the room and we had a whistling contest.  There were blown crackers everywhere. We had so much fun.


Momma was a lover and a fighter. That is the best of both worlds.


We may not know much but we know that this world was so much happier with our mother in it. We were truly blessed.  She was a life force that will never be equaled.


She has left behind her daughters Amy Hibdon (Gary), Shelly Gagne (Bill); grandchildren, Chase, Sage, Dighton, Braeden and Emma; sisters Bobbie Follett, Elaine Weiner and Sharon Thomas; brother Garrey Kilgore; many nieces and nephews and a multitude of friends who adored her.


She loved her grandchildren unconditionally and more than life itself. There will never be a replacement for their Nana.


Celebration of life to follow.

Worked with your mom at Shore Tire Co. We became very close at that time. My daughters Joan and Julie remember Amy and Shelly and visiting with them. Frankie always had a smile and so easy to talk to. So glad I was able to talk with her for awhile but sorry we did not get together like we planned. My prayers are with you girls always. stay safe.

I was fortunate to meet Frankie and her family when I was about 13. The relationship was a second family to my brother Ed and I. Frankie will live in not only in my memory but in all who knew and loved her. The friendship will be a part of me as long as I live. I am grateful that Bobble and Dick are a big part of our friendship and now it continues with Facebook connecting me to daughters Shellie and Amy. . Rest In Peace Frankie, I will miss you. Carol
