He began his career in Lexington North Carolina as a 4-H Extension Agent, and soon became the director of the first Peace Corps program in Brazil in 1961. He and Sibyl lead Peace Corp volunteers in Rio de Janeiro for 3 years. He became the Director of International and Domestic Programs for the National 4-H Council in Chevy Chase, Maryland where he worked for 20 years. In 1984, he and Sibyl returned to their home state to realize a dream of historic preservation, farming and hospitality. They rehabilitated an old Valle Crucis farm and opened the Mast Farm Inn in June of 1985. They offered guests a respite from busy lives providing them with fresh grown food and comfortable accommodations in a relaxed family setting. Francis retired in 1996 and continued to be active in many service, community and church organizations, including Boone Sunrise Rotary Club, Holy Cross Episcopal Church and Valle Crucis Historic Commission. Francis and Sibyl served as coordinators of the Valle Country Fair and pressed untold gallons of apple cider, grilled hundreds of chickens at the Valle Crucis Park to raise funds for a new education building at Holy Cross, and headed the Potato Club down by the river where the crop was given to a local food bank. Francis and Sibyl shared a love of gardening and enjoyed growing vegetables and flowers and sharing their bounty with the community. His friends loved to see the bright blue truck coming their way, as he distributed whatever vegetables were in season. Corn and tomatoes were specially anticipated. He loved to travel and relax at their beach house on Topsail Island with his family. He was a life long Wolfpack fan and loved the years that NC State made it to the final four! Most of all, Francis was a wonderful husband, father and grandfather. He was a mentor to many of all ages throughout his life. Always willing to pass on his knowledge, advise and offer a hand to those in need. He reminds us there is good in this world. Francis is survived by his wife Sibyl, children Bill Pressly and partner Lia in Valle Crucis, Sally Pressly and her husband, Tom Ballmer, in Mason City, Iowa, and grandchildren, Sophie, Jacob and Zach.

Ray Judson Boleman
1944 – 2019

Ray Judson Boleman, Jr., died unexpectedly on November 23, 2019 in Winston-Salem, North Carolina.

Ray was born on November 9, 1944 in Royston, Georgia to the late Ray and Martha Boleman. He attended Clemson University, completed a Masters of Business Administration degree from Louisiana State University.

He married Jan Ankerich, his high school sweetheart, in 1964. They began their married life in Hartwell, Georgia, where they had attended school together, but quickly moved to Columbia, South Carolina, when Ray earned his first position in banking, which would lead to a 31-year career in financial services. During their 55-year marriage, they moved 11 times across North and South Carolina and he held positions in South Carolina National Bank, Planters Bank, and Centura Bank until he retired in 1997 as President of Centura Bank.

Fulfilling a life-long dream of running a marathon, Ray completed his first race at the age of 50 in Washington, D.C. and additional marathons in New York City and Virginia Beach.

Family time was everything to Ray. The love of the beach, big fish expeditions, snow skiing, and time together baking cookies at Christmas are few of the special family times that are still being passed down today. The past month was full of unforgettable memories, though no one knew those would be the last moments shared with him.

In addition to being survived by his wife, Jan, he is survived by his daughters, Cynthia Boleman Heffernan and husband Daniel Heffernan, Jennifer Boleman Ford and husband Robert Ford, as well as grandchildren, Taylor Land O’Conney and wife Stonee O’Conney, Noah Allen O’Conney, Julia Carson Louise Ford, Hannah Grace Heffernan, Robert Gregory Ford, Jr., and William Henry Ford.

It brought immense joy to him that their first great-grandchild is expected in April 2020. His family will remember him for his generosity, his delicious “Papoo pasta” and French Toast dishes, how first impressions are so important, that you should greet everyone with a smile if you’re happy or not, making pallets on the bedroom floor for them to sleep in and hunting for bargain treasures.

He was an active and dedicated member and Chairman of Deacons at the Middle Forks Baptist church in Blowing Rock, North Carolina. The last service that he attended he sang a solo of the song, “Will the Circle Be Unbroken” to the congregation, even though he had been suffering from shortness of breath.

He and Jan were longtime residents of Hound Ears Club in Blowing Rock, and he loved the game of golf as a player and for 30 years as a score keeper at the Augusta National.

Many people may not know that Ray began painting and capturing photos late in life and enjoyed sharing the views from their mountain deck home in watercolor paintings and vibrant photos with his friends and family.

A funeral is scheduled for Tuesday, November 26 at noon at Middle Forks Baptist Church, Blowing Rock, North Carolina with a visitation preceding at 11 a.m. at the same location. A graveside service is scheduled for Wednesday, November 27 at 3 p.m. in Hartwell, Georgia at Cross Roads Baptist Church. All are welcome to attend and celebrate Ray’s life.

In lieu of flowers, please send donations to Middle Forks Baptist Church (268 Bishop Ridge Parkway, Blowing Rock, NC, 28605) or Cross Roads Baptist Church (3636 Lavonia Highway, Hartwell, GA, 30643).

Online condolences may be shared with the Boleman family at the website www.austinandbarnesfuneralhome.com.

Anyone that knows Kathleen is keenly aware of her love and skill in growing vegetable gardens and exotic flowers of all kinds. She states: “I love to try new kinds of flowers and vegetables. My greatest enjoyment is sharing garden products with others. I began learning and enjoying gardening when I was only seven years old, and it is still my greatest passion.” She thrives on a hard day’s work! Kathleen blessed many with her singing of her old timey songs.

Another of Kathleen’s interests and accomplishments is designing and hooking rubs from scrap cloth. She began working on rugs at ten years old, and has spent years, several years, as a volunteer helping others learn the almost lost art of making handmade rugs. “I enjoy going to the Western Watauga Community Center to work with others and fellowship with all the wonderful staff and friends each week.”

Kathleen brightens the room wherever she is. She is truly a unique and wise mountain woman with much love and knowledge to share with others.
