Frankie Marie (Sloan) Moose

April 18, 1929 ~ January 12, 2021 (age 91)


Mrs. Frankie Marie Sloan Moose, 91, of Statesville, joined her loved ones in heaven, Tuesday, January 12, 2021 at Iredell Memorial Hospital.

Frankie was born April 18, 1929 in Iredell County and was the daughter of the late Rex Orin Sloan and Edna McCurdy Sloan of Olin. She was a 1948 graduate of Harmony High School. She married the love of her life, the late Clyde Alexander Moose, Sr. on September 9, 1950 in a double wedding with her sister Elvalee and husband Jack. She was a member of Charity Baptist Church in Kannapolis and recently attended The Cove in Statesville.

Frankie loved everyone and everyone loved her. The oldest of fourteen, she was gifted with many talents and therefore never idle. She enjoyed teaching her loved ones (with the patience of Job) the art of sewing, knitting, crocheting and crafting. She and her sisters spent fun times together selling their creations at craft shows. She even taught ceramics classes and delivered newspapers for The Daily Independent in Kannapolis. She could play the piano by ear and loved singing gospel music with anyone who would join in; her favorites being Victory in Jesus and The Old Rugged Cross.

She was the owner and operator of Frankie’s Beauty Salon in Kannapolis for more than 30 years. Her salon was full service which included picking you up and taking you home when needed. Her generosity and love for others knew no limits. She loved helping people. Always encouraging others to use natural remedies, she was holistic before it was cool. Over the years, her home was open to several nieces, nephews and grandchildren who needed shelter. She liked a full house, just like her mom.

She is survived by one son, Clyde Alexander “Alex” Moose, Jr. (Cathy) of Statesville; three granddaughters, Candace Moose, Alexis Moose, Sharon Cress of Statesville; eight great grandchildren; four brothers, Donald Sloan (Naomi) of Winston-Salem, Dennis Sloan (Carolyn) of Olin, Wayne Sloan of Olin, Gerald Sloan (Debbie) of Statesville; three sisters, Dorothy Campbell of Statesville, Almedia Baxter (Bill) of Statesville, Judy Upright (Larry) of Olin and numerous beloved nieces and nephews.

In addition to her husband and parents, she was preceded in death by her infant son, Danny Moose, a granddaughter, Karri Cress; a great-granddaughter, Monica Burrell;  three brothers, William “Bill” Sloan, Clay Sloan, James “Jim” Sloan and three sisters, Elvalee Templeton, Joyce Madison and Polly Hart.
