Reflections of Life
On October 22nd, 1936 in Bryan, Tx., a beautiful soul was introduced to this world through the loving union of Mr. Phillip Beverly, Sr. & Mrs. A. C. McMurray Beverly. Together, they decided to name their new bundle of joy Frankie Lacy Beverly. Frankie, sometimes referred to as "Frank", was just one of eleven children as a result of their loving marriage. Frankie accepted Jesus as her Lord and Savior at a very early age. She attended E.A. Kemp High School, where she participated in many sports activities. She went on to graduate from E.A. Kemp High and moved to San Antonio, Tx. soon after. Frankie met and married Mr. Raymond C. Dunmon, Jr. and together had three children, Windell Calvin Dunmon (deceased), Madlyn Jean Williams (deceased) and Jeffrey D. Dunmon.
Frankie worked for Handy Andy grocery store chain in the meat department that spanned
nearly 20 yrs. After that, Frankie sought medical training and began a career in private duty care, which gave her the fulfilling opportunity to care for the sick and elderly. Having a loving heart for people, Frankie began working for the State of Texas as a Mental Health Mental Retardation (MHMR) Specialist at the State Hospital. During her tenure there, Frankie saved a patient's life without regard to her own safety resulting in second degree burns to her own hand. As a result, she received a commendation from the Governor of Texas for her life-saving sacrifice. After serving 20 years, Frankie retired from the State and began working as a Wal-Mart greeter because she enjoyed being around people. She later retired from Wal-Mart as her health dictated.
Everyone in Frankie's presence experienced a warm, gentle, tender-hearted soul, with a beautiful inviting smile! Frankie held family in high regard and being a loving wife and mother were utmost important to her. She dearly embraced and endlessly loved her only granddaughter Natasha N. Dunmon and her four great-grandchildren.
Frankie was a faithful tithing member of Progressive Missionary Baptist Church, serving on Usher Board #2 and various auxiliary boards. Frankie immensely enjoyed going to Ella Austin's Community Center Senior Services during the week to fellowship and participate in recreation activities with other seniors.
She is survived by Raymond C. Dunmon, Jr. (divorced), Jeffrey D. Dunmon (son), Natasha N. Dunmon (Granddaughter) and four great grandchildren: Dra'shad D. Dunmon, Aaron Tyler,Jr., Aquancia Dunmon and Ja'Quori Watson, and James Beverly of San Antonio, Tx. (brother) and Ms. Doris Scott of Dallas, Tx. (sister), and a host of nieces / nephews and friends.
Frankie will be dearly missed!
