Johnnie "GeeGee" Frets, 83, of Conway, and formerly of Biggers, Ark., passed away Thursday, June 6, 2013.
The Guest Book is expired.
She was born July 20, 1929, in Corning, Ark., to the late Alma and Leon Williamson.
She was also preceded in death by her husband, Lynn C. Frets.
GeeGee enjoyed reading, working crossword puzzles, and playing the piano, and always had a faithful canine companion at her side when at home. She was also quite the Bridge player and loved playing cards with her group in Pocahontas before she moved to Conway to be closer to her daughters.
She received her degree from Mary Hardin Baylor College in Texas, and her master's degree from A.S.U. in Jonesboro, Ark. She retired from teaching at Biggers-Reyno Elementary School. Her third graders were often treated on Halloween to an appearance from "Matilda," her supposed twin sister who handed out treats. Her unique personality and sense of humor endeared her to those who knew her.
Those left behind to cherish her memory include her brother, Bob Williamson and wife Nancy and family of Pocahontas; her son, Dr. Robert Frets (Diane) of Seguin, Texas; her daughter Susan Holtz (Alvin) of Greenbrier; her daughter, Karen Terry (Calvin) of Conway; three grandchildren, Addie Reed (Bryan) of Seguin, Texas, Rob Frets (Nicole) of Bracketville, Texas, Kristen Gotcher (Heath) of Greenbrier; and six precious great-grandchildren.
Arrangements will be private.
In lieu of flowers, memorials and remembrances may by sent in her name to the Pocahontas Methodist Church, the Randolph County Humane Society, or the Faulkner County Humane Society.
