Stahl, Frances Avery "Frankie"  
Frances "Frankie" Avery Stahl Memphis, TN In the early evening of August 20, 2016, in the sixth month of her 100th year, Frances "Frankie" James Avery Stahl slipped away to join her four sisters and their parents Walter Waddell and Beulah Ward James. Thus, "The James Girls" of Newton, Mississippi are united once more. A life-long, avid traveler, as a small child in Mississippi Frankie thought the life of a gypsy sounded very appealing; and she vowed never to let rain or muddy roads be an impediment to seeking out adventure in the wider world. Frankie and John Buchanan (Buck) Avery, Jr. of Alamo, Tennessee met at Baylor University. They graduated together in 1938. Frankie left her drama studies, acting and teaching roles after their marriage in 1940. Her father had advised the highest calling was to establish a stable family of faith, and she followed his advice. Nonetheless, her poetry reading and storytelling continued to entertain and inform her family through the ensuing generations. Frankie and Buck resided in Alamo where Buck practiced law until his untimely death in 1971. "Miss Frankie" returned to the elementary school classrooms in Alamo and in Houston, Texas; and she continued her travels. In 1978 Frankie and Dr. William H. (Bill) Stahl, a retired McCormick&Co. executive, married and initially made their home in Baltimore, Maryland. By 1981 they moved to Memphis. They traveled widely in Asia, Europe and spent protracted periods of time in Brazil and Trinidad and Tobago when Bill was on assignment with the International Executives Service Corps. They subsequently moved to the Kirby Pines retirement community where Frankie continued to reside after Bill's death. Frankie's early studies and dramatic performances at Baylor were shaped under the direction of Dr. A.J. Armstrong, a foremost scholar of the poetry of Robert and Elizabeth Barrett Browning. Among her favorites was Robert Browning's Pippa Passes. "Pippa's Song" reflects Frankie's conviction as she started and lived each day:...God's in his heaven; all's right with the world. Frankie was an enthusiastic and accomplished bridge player. She was active at Second Presbyterian Church in Memphis, in the Memphis Baylor Alumni group, the English Speaking Union and the symphony and opera societies. She attended First Presbyterian Church in Fort Lauderdale, Florida during "winter breaks" with her family there. Visitation at Ronk Funeral Home in Alamo is scheduled for Saturday, August 27, between 2 and 3 p.m. There will be a short service of thanksgiving followed by a private burial ceremony. In lieu of flowers memorials may be sent to Second Presbyterian Church Music Ministry, 4055 Poplar Avenue, Memphis, TN 38111; Baylor University Development Office, One Bear Place #97050, Waco, TX 78798-7026 or to the charity of your choice.
