Frances Rollins Addison, passed away on October 3, 2015, transitioning to a much greater Heavenly Destination. She was born May 3, 1931, in Frederick, MD, to the late Jesse and Janie Rollins. While going through her storms and up to the time of her passing, she always sought eternal peace, trusting and thanking God for all blessings. We all know she was a prayer warrior and she would often say in a short but powerful phrase, "God got it." \n\nHer wittiness could only have been obtained from her relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ. This was evident to everyone who truly knew her character. She attended school in Frederick, Maryland. Vocationally, Frances worked several jobs that included driving a school bus and working as an aide in the Baltimore City School System. Minister Addison's most important job was as a worker in God's Kingdom. She would sacrifice her needs, giving her time and resources to others, praying for family members and/or anyone in need of prayer, and being diligent in studying the scriptures, ready and armed with a good word. Frances was a dedicated member of First Apostolic Faith Church of Jesus Christ where she worked in the following ministries: member of the United Evangelist Missionary Fellowship Group, member of the Senior Saints Fellowship Group, and worker and contributor to the Sunday School Children's Department. As a member of the First Apostolic Faith Church of Jesus Christ, she received certificates of recognition and appreciation for her work as a missionary and teacher. She likewise received similar awards from the Antioch Church, Bible school Association, and from Sheppard Baptist Church. \n\nMinister Addison's greatest ministry was raising her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren. She used God's living word and her life as a witness to demonstrate God's strength and power. She gave all her children and grandchildren the message that God's word is living water. There is no situation or problem that could not be overcome through faith, prayer, and righteous living. It was her personal mission to encourage her children and grandchildren to become strong, mature Christians. Mother Addison, as sometimes addressed, loved to have church in her home with her children and grandchildren requiring that they learned the scriptures. In passing, we're sure she is still encouraging all of her family members in spirit and in memory to continue their study of the bible for she knew its power and purpose. Frances was both salt and light as one of God's chosen who used her gifts. She loved her sisters, brothers, children, grandchildren, her numerous nieces and nephews, cousins, friends, and all church members from both past and/or present church affiliations. All have experienced special relationships with Sister Addison, and she will be sincerely missed. Her memory and presence will continue to live in our hearts. \n\nFrances Addison Rollins is survived by her children, Bentley Sewell, Jr., Linda C. Keller (Sewell), Wayne M. Rollins, Ernest D.
