Mary Frances Brewer Hinson, 85, passed March 18, 2016 at 7:10 PM. Residing in the loving care of Signature Health and Rehab Center in Clarksville, TN, she left us all too quickly.

In 1955 with their three small children Jimmy, Beth and Cindee as well as Essie Ree, (their older half sister from their father’s first marriage). Frances raised her family there, adopting another son, Michael Wayne in 1961.
From housewife to factories she found her true calling as a waitress at the Boro Truck Stop where she held court for many a year smiling and endearing herself to all who crossed her path.
Moving to Nashville with her daughter Cindee, in the early eighties to be closer to her successful singer/songwriter son Jimbeau Hinson. After all, she was the inspiration for his Number 1 song I’m Settin’ Fancy Free by the Oak RIdge Boys (co-written with Roy August).
