Mrs. Frances McLeod Barefoot, 91 of Four Oaks, N.C., completed her life’s journey on Feb. 5, 2019.
She was founder of Barefoot’s TLC Nursery, which she began 40 years ago as an outgrowth of her love of gardening. In 1978, she won fame as the National Ladies’ Hollerin’ Champ at Spivey’s Corner, N.C., with her beloved Chihuahua, Peanut. In her later years, she was an enthusiastic croaker fisherman on Virginia’s Eastern Shore. She continued to work full time managing her azalea nursery until she was in her late 80s.
She is survived by daughter, Pamela Barefoot, and her husband, Jim Green, of Jamesville, and three other children. Memorial donations may be made to the Larry Parker Scholarship at YMCA Camp Silver Beach, P.O. Box 69, Jamesville, VA 23398.
