Remembering the Past, People of Waxhaw
Frances Davis Thompson
Beloved teacher at Waxhaw School and citizen of Waxhaw ...
Frances, who went by Frankie was born in 1913, and lived her entire life in Waxhaw on North Providence Street. Her grandfather, James C Davis, was Waxhaw's first mayor who drafted the town charter. Her aunt, Maggie Davis, another active citizen of Waxhaw, raised her for most of her childhood. She wrote in her diary that the best day of her life was when she met her future husband, Collins, in 1937. He was the son of the Waxhaw Methodist Church minister.
She is well remembered by many of her students who she taught the Irish Jig and the Bamboo Stick Dance in preparation for the annual May Day Celebration at Waxhaw School. For years she was in charge of the Waxhaw Antique Show. She taught Sunday school for years at the Methodist Church. Frankie and Collins purchased a tent in 1954 at Pleasant Grove Campground and it was aid she never missed a year of camp meeting. She loved the Waxhaw Woman's Club and stayed very involved with the club. Frankie and Collins were very active in the Waxhaw community, even the town of Waxhaw honored them by placing a sundial engraved with their names near the Veterans Memorial Wall.
Pictured is Frankie and Collins, dressed up for the 1989 Waxhaw Centennial.
