Ms. Frankie was born November 14, 1918 in Tift County to the late Kellis M. Moorman, Sr. and Sadie Lula Mae Ford Moorman. She was preceded in death by her husband, Calvin A. McCaskill, Sr. and her grandson, Kell McCaskill. She was also preceded in death by her brothers, Kellis Moorman, Jr. and G.W. Moorman and her great grandchild, Paige Lynn Weckwert. Ms. Frankie lived a long and full life serving our Lord through her great advice, kind words, and doing what she loved. Her favorite lifelong career of 60 plus years was being a hairdresser. Many of her customers have also gone to be with the Lord, but the devoted few who remain will also miss her dearly. She was a member of Southside Baptist Church and the Glory Sunday School Class.
We are honored to celebrate our Mother's life and we invite all who knew her to join with us at the service or visitation. The world has lost an extraordinary person who loved people, her family and friends, and would always go the extra mile for anyone who needed her help, including rides to the store, church, and picking up customers for their hair appointments. We are very thankful for all the friends and family who helped our Mother with so many things during her last years. She felt God's love through all these kindnesses shown to her and always made sure she let them know. Heaven will be a better place with her there rejoicing with the angels. We look forward to joining her in heaven!
