Obituary

DATELINE:  KINGS MOUNTAIN, NORTH CAROLINA
Frances Pollard Alexander 

Frances Alexander, age 94, of Kings Mountain, went home to be with the Lord on April 23,
2021. Born in Edgecombe County, she was the daughter of the late Orlando Reddick Pollard
and Mary Elizabeth Pollard. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her
husband of 65 years; the late William “Bill” Alexander, 6 brothers and 1 sister. She worked hard
as a payroll clerk at Margrace, Lambeth, and Fasco. She was a long time member of First
Baptist Church of Kings Mountain and a huge advocate and volunteer of Hospice Cleveland
County. People would describe Frances as a genuine, Godly woman who loved her Lord and Savior.
Her lifetime mission was serving the Lord and making sure her family members were taught
the Word of Christ. Frances was a Christian, Wife, Mother of four, Special caregiver to one,
and a Grandmother to many. She was passionate about her family and loved each one in a
special way. She always told her family how much she loved them and then would follow
with “and God loves you too.” Frances had a giving heart that was always helping someone
in need as much as she could. She always said she “couldn’t take it with her when she went
to Heaven so why not help someone who needed it more than she did.” The examples she
portrayed for her family and friends will never be forgotten. Her legacy will live on through
them. The stories she told her family will always be remembered. Maybe even repeated to
younger generations to come. The love she gave to everyone will forever be cherished.
Heaven sure is sweeter with her presence! Please be in prayer for the family as they cope with this extreme loss of such a phenomenal Matriarch!
