On April 7, 1947, Ernestine Frailey became the first of four children born to Everett and Betty (Clark) Frailey. Raised in the Olive community, Ernestine would attend and graduate from Olive schools. A mother to four children, she not only served as a homemaker, but Ernestine also worked as a teacher’s aide and nurse’s aide in the Drumright and Cushing area to help support her family.
Active in her kid’s activities in the community, Ernestine was a 4-H leader for several years, as well as, an active member in the FFA Booster Club. She spent countless hours attending livestock shows and sales with her children and whenever there was an event that needed help with a concession stand, she was always there to help and organize. Spending time with her children and participating in these activities brought Ernestine great joy.
When she was not at work, or at another activity, Ernestine could be found sewing or crocheting. In addition, she loved to root for the Oklahoma City Thunder!
Ernestine has been described as both strong and determined, a bit stubborn, and quite independent. At the same time, she loved her family and friends and will be greatly missed by those who survive.
Surviving family members include her children: daughter, Javon Sixsmith and husband, D.J., son, Steven Cargill, and wife, Jacqulyn, daughter, Amber Keller and husband, Chad, and son, Christopher Cargill, and wife, Jennifer; grandchildren: Mason Sixsmith, Ryan Sixsmith, Hayden Sixsmith, Andrew Kilgore, Austin Cargill, Garrett Cargill, Jordyn Roberson, Reece Roberson, Destiny Cargill, and Colman Cargill. She is also survived by numerous great-grandchildren; her siblings: brother, Samuel Frailey, and wife, Sheryl, sister, Charlotte Wiles and husband, David, and brother, Donald Frailey along with a host of other relatives and friends.
Preceded in death by her parents: Everett and Betty (Clark) Frailey, Ernestine passed away peacefully from this life and went to be with her Lord on Tuesday, December 17, 2019. She was 72.
