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.
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 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.
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.
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.
