Frances Erma Teams Greene, 93, went home on September 16, 2020.

Frankie was born February 14, 1927 in Boone, North Carolina to Bub Grady Teams and Nancy Ethel Frances Gragg.

Frankie leaves behind her loving children, Linda Greene Agnello and her husband, Steve of Johns Creek, Georgia and James (Johnny) Conley Greene III and his wife, Catharine of Raleigh, North Carolina. She is survived by her sister, Edith Teams Sylvester of Middleton, Wisconsin. Frankie adored her grandchildren, Carly Melissa Agnello Bellard and her husband, Randy of McKinney, Texas, Tristen Rebecca-Agnello Anderson and her husband, Eric of Cumming, Georgia, Christopher Jordan Greene of Raleigh, North Carolina, and step-grandson George Tucker Hennessy of Raleigh, North Carolina. Frankie's great-grandchildren, Madison and Eli Bellard of McKinney, Texas and Conley and Thaine Anderson of Cumming, Georgia, were the light of her life. She also leaves behind numerous nieces and nephews. She is predeceased by her devoted husband of 66 years, James Conley Greene Jr, her siblings, Glen Everette Teams of Knoxville, Tennessee and Dotsy Mamiloe Teams of Ocala, Florida and her granddaughter, Mikayla Shannon Greene of Raleigh, North Carolina.

Frankie met the love of her life, J.C., while working as a secretary at Appalachian High School. After serving in the Navy during World War II, J.C. returned from Europe to complete his high school education. He fell in love with Frankie, and asked her to marry him on their first date. They were married on June 3, 1947. Frankie served as the secretary to Principal Herbert Wey at Appalachian High School before starting Boone Supply Company with J.C. in 1956. J.C. and Frankie faithfully served the Boone community for more than 20 years before selling the store in 1976. After working again for ASU as secretary to the Chancellors Emeritus, Frankie followed J.C.'s dream and together they started a sawmill in Deep Gap. "Happy Hollow", named for a loyal pet, was their beloved home until 2004, when they moved to Whitestone in Greensboro. After J.C.'s passing in 2013, Frankie moved to Raleigh in 2018 to be close to family. Her passion was sending emails to family and friends, and at times overwhelming in-boxes with jokes, anecdotes and inspirational messages. In later years, Frankie enjoyed reading her Bible, working crossword puzzles and indulging in strawberry and butter pecan ice cream. She was an AVID supporter of ASU football and Duke basketball. But above all, Frankie was a listener, cheerleader, co-conspirator and loving friend to so many. Her quick wit, kindness and generosity will be sorely missed. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Habitat for Humanity or your local church.

Graveside services for Frances Greene will be conducted Saturday morning, September 19, 2020 at 11:00 a.m. at Mount Lawn Memorial Park and Gardens. Officiating will be Rev. Bud Russell.
Austin & Barnes Funeral Home and Crematory is serving the Greene family.
