Angela Kaye Minchew Francis found ultimate healing in the arms of her Savior on Friday, October 16, 2020. Angie was born on January 7, 1977, in Pine Bluff, Arkansas to Buster and Sharon Minchew. She was a 1995 honor graduate of White Hall High School where she participated in several clubs and activities. She graduated from Henderson State University in 1999 with her degree in Elementary Education.
Angie was employed by the Watson Chapel School District for fourteen years where she served first as a Kindergarten Teacher then as a First Grade Teacher. She was an amazing teacher, unafraid to think outside the box and was able to shift gears on a dime when necessary. She was invested in making a difference in the lives of her students. Teaching was not just a job for Angie, it was her passion. She always went above and beyond to help her students succeed no matter what roadblocks were put in her way.
Angie also found joy in her love for animals, especially her dog Little Man, cat Mr. Whiskers, bearded dragon, Oscar and leopard gecko Pookie. She fell in love with animals as a young child, growing up with chickens, goats, birds, dogs and cats.
Angie was a child of God and participated in several mission trips during college, including a trip to Atlanta during the 1996 Olympics. Angie had a quick wit, great sense of humor and an infectious laugh that usually ended in a series of joyful snorts. If you heard her laugh once, you would never forget it. She had a kind heart and a loving spirit.
Angie was preceded in death by her parents Buster and Sharon Minchew and her sister Sarah Minchew. Angie is survived by her loving husband Jimmy, who she married on November 17, 2001, their two cherished daughters Savannah and Emily, and several aunts, uncles and cousins.
The family wishes to thank the Watson Chapel School District, the teachers of Edgewood Elementary and countless devoted friends for the prayers, love and support given during this difficult time.
Visitation will be Tuesday, October 20, 2020, 6:00 – 8:00 PM, in the Robinson & Fuller White Hall Funeral Chapel.
Funeral services will be Wednesday, October 21, 2020, 5:00 PM in the Robinson & Fuller White Hall Funeral Chapel with Pastors Micah McKinley and Brandon Massey officiating.

Two of my five grandkids had the privilege of having Ms. Francis as their 1st grade teacher. What an amazing teacher and person she was! You will all be remembered in my family's prayers.

Jimmy, I'm completely at a loss for words. I have not been a good friend to y'all; I wish I stayed in touch more. Through the lens of facebook, it's obvious that you and Angie shared a great love for another and have two beautiful girls. The loss of a wife, mother, and teacher with so much promise, troubles my heart. I hurt for you. I heard someone say "It is a precious thing beyond all words - especially in the hour of death - that we have a God whose nature is such that what pleases Him is not our work for Him but our need for Him." From my experience, the best thing you can do in the days, weeks, and months to come is to feel your feelings, remember her often, be strong for your girls but allow them to honestly express their raw emotions, find a trusted friend to be vulnerable and transparent with, and most of all stand on your faith (Proverbs 3:5-6). Love you and will continue praying for y'all.

My thoughts and prayers are with all of her family, friends, and Watson Chapel School District especially Edgewood co-workers. I worked with Angie at Edgewood.
