On February 28, 1956, Frankie married Wendell Mount, the boy who grew up across the street. Frankie had three children, Kelly, Alan, and Shona. They made their first home in Tulsa, OK. She worked with Dr. Hugh Spencer, a pediatrician, as a nursing assistant. Later she worked at St. John Tulsa nursery where she loved working with the newborns. After a time, the family settled in Hominy, OK where she worked for Drs. Lakin and Brewer.
She excelled at creating things with love, be it cooking, quilting, embroidering, or ceramics. She collected dolls and Precious Moments figurines. She was especially great at providing for family gatherings, a request for one dish was met with at least five! Her epic Easter egg hunts were a delight to family and friends, and she spent at least half the year planning and gathering prizes for the hunt. A passionate sports fan, Frankie always cheered on her Oklahoma State Cowboys and her Oklahoma City Thunder.
