January 15, 1933 - July 3, 2021
Frances Delores Bolen, age 88, passed away peacefully on July 3, 2021. She was born January 15, 1933 in Millstone, KY to Joe and Isabelle Davis. She was married for 61 years to the love of her life, Coyet Bolen, who preceded her to heaven in 2014. Mom, Momma, Gran, Nana, Sissy, Baby… was one of the sweetest souls God ever placed on the earth. Raising five children is never easy, but she did it with grace, discipline, and most of all… LOVE. She shared Dad’s passion for the Kentucky Wildcats and was usually seen in that distinctive blue color. A smile that lit up the room, a gentle voice we longed to hear, she set an example for everybody who was fortunate to know her. Her life was a living example of her favorite Bible verses, Psalm 121:1-2 — “I lift up my eyes to the mountains- where does my help come from? My help comes from the Lord, Maker of heaven and earth.” And Isaiah 40:31—“But those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles: they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.” Frances is survived by her brother, Gene Davis; her four daughters and their husbands- Coetta and Bruce Henderson, Terri and Gary Jacobs, Bettie Lea and Bruce Prevo, Matisa and Doug Knowles, and her son and wife, French and Sherri Bolen. She was incredibly blessed with 14 grandchildren and 18 great grandchildren, and her many nephews and nieces. All of these she loved and touched deeply. Please join us in celebrating her life at 1:00 PM on Friday, July 9 in the chapel at First Baptist Church, 1000 W Friendly Ave, Greensboro, NC 27401. There will be a brief service at 3:00 PM at Westminster Gardens Cemetery after the celebration, 3601 Whitehurst Rd, Greensboro, NC 27410. Forbis & Dick Funeral Home is coordinating funeral arrangements- Guilford Chapel, 5926 W. Friendly Ave. Greensboro, NC 27410. Many people say, “In lieu of flowers,” but Mom loved flowers… the brighter the better.
