Sweet Momma was born November 3, 1898 and her name was Frances McCorkle Reinhardt Puckette. She was a school teacher in Lincoln County until the late 1940's when a tragic car accident left her unable to teach publicly. However, her strong spirit and mind allowed her to tutor kids in Math and Reading and teach piano lessons from her home until she was 84 years old. Those that remember her will all say the same thing "She was one special Lady".
My name is Frances Reinhardt Casper Goins born and raised in Iron Station, graduated from East Lincoln High School and attended Western Carolina University. My art instruction came from Naome Miller in Lincolnton privately for 9 years. My mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and daughters were and are artists. So in 2015 I decided to quit my job of 17 years and decided to open Sweet Momma's Art Studio and named it after the most influential person in my life, one that I am so proud to call my Grandmother. I was named for her and love to share Sweet Momma stories with anyone that has time to listen.
