Grove activist, Mrs. Frankie Rolle, passes on
Mrs. Rolle moved to Miami in 1946. She was called the "mother of the community," as she was part of everyone's lives in Village West. She stepped in where she felt needed. Mrs. Rolle was instrumental in starting the Goombay Festival in the 1970s so as to share the Bahamian history of Coconut Grove's roots.
There will be a litany service at 5 pm Sunday, February 16 at Christ Episcopal Church (3481 Hibiscus Street). The funeral will be at noon Monday at the church.
