Chenise (Niecy) had many accomplishments including establishing two insurance offices in North Carolina and Virginia. Her father would be so proud of her because he would often jokingly ask her about her many jobs, “Daughter are you ever going to be anything?” She would just laugh. She was fearless and strong; always smiling and so funny.

Chenise’s hobbies were softball, basketball and volleyball which she received a scholarship from Elon College. She loved music and loved singing. She was motivated and driven to win and passionate about the Insurance business. She won several awards for the highest sales. She loved to travel. She was kind and generous and would help anyone if she could. She has lasting friendships from her childhood and her humble beginnings in Knightdale.

Chenise received salvation at an early age and was a member of Saint James Apostolic Church for many years where she was the choir director and youth leader. Later, she and her husband established Straightgate Apostolic Church where she worked diligently in the ministry.

Chenise was preceded in death by her father, Herbert and her mother, Joe Ann.

Chenise is survived by her husband, Dr. Curtis Frith; daughter, Brittney; sister, Vivian (William) Dickens of Knightdale; two brothers, Jonathan Craig (Irene) Harrington and Michael Dean (Tandra) Harrington of Knightdale and a host of nieces, nephews, in-laws, special aunties and friends.
