February 17, 1945 – November 30, 2013
On February 17, 1945 in the city of Palestine, Texas, Frankie Mae Alexander Redmond was the thirteenth child born to Everline Martin Alexander and Willie Edgar Alexander, Sr.
Frankie began her formal education at Green Bay High School in Tucker, Texas. When she was eleven years old, her family moved to Los Angeles, CA. She attended elementary, junior high and high school in Los Angeles, receiving her diploma from Manual Arts High School.
After arriving in Los Angeles, the family placed their membership at Miracle Temple COGIC, under the pastorate of Elder William Shackelford. It was at this church where she met and married the love of her life and the father of her children, William Louis Fleming, Sr. To this union five children were born. William, Jr., Donald, Robert, Ronald and Frankie.
Frankie accepted the Lord as her personal Savior at an early age. Her father was a minister and her mother a missionary. Both of them instilled in their children strong Christian values and she heeded their teachings. She sang in the choir, worked untiringly in the church as a minister’s wife, and always worked on numerous building fund projects. She was dedicated and a hard worker. In 1978, under the leadership of her father Willie Alexander, Sr., Faith COGIC was established. She continued working in this ministry under the leadership of her father and her brother Pendell Alexander. She quickly joined the choir and became one of the lead singers. Oh! How she could sing!! She also helped to build this church and continued to be very supportive in every way until her death.
Frankie began her work history in the garment district of Los Angeles. She later was employed with Educational Insights, where she developed a great rapport with the owners that still exists until today. Frankie lastly landed the career of her dreams with Corey Heibert and Business Interiors furniture industries. She worked diligently and obtained great status with these companies, until she retired in 2007.
Frankie was a very classy lady. She wanted only the best for herself and her family. She was never selfish. If she had, everyone else had. She had a talent for finding things of great value, for very little money. Everyone who knew her knew this.
Late in life, God blessed Frankie with her current husband, Joseph Redmond, Sr. When they met, it seemed electric and spontaneous. They shared everything in life including their business. She was his co-pilot for their trucking company. She went out with him on every trip.
Today, our hearts are very sadden and heartbroken, and will be for some time to come. A major part of our family has departed and will be sorely missed. She departed this life on November 30, 2013. Her companionship, friendship, smile and humor will be missed.
She leaves to cherish her memories, her husband Joseph Redmond, Sr., two sons and their wives, Donald (Delphia) and Robert (Michelle) Fleming, two sisters, Roberta Traylor and Mary Easton, three brothers and their wives, Henry (Wilma), Alfred (Ola) and James (Fran) Alexander. Five grandchildren, Danielle, Donnell, Jasmine, Ashley and Robyn; and two great-grands, Jerome Fleming-Wilson and Janelle Wilson and a host of in-laws, nieces nephews and cousins.
Her mother, father, two sons William, Jr., and Ronald, daughter Frankie, two sisters Alberta and Jessie Mae, eight brothers, W.E., Jr., George, Matthew Leon, Mark, Pendell, Thomas, Jake, and Baby Alexander preceded her in death.
