Barbara Ann Farrill entered Heaven's Gates surrounded by her family on May 24, 2023, in Okmulgee, OK at the age of 83. Barbara was born to parents Cleveland and Mary Lou (Le Juene) Fruge on August 29, 1939, in Ville Platte, LA. She married the love of her life, Phillip "Phil" Wayne Farrill, on August 20, 1971 and they remained devoted to each other for 50 years until his death in 2022. Barbara and Phil faithfully served the Lord together, caring for those who were downtrodden, lonely, and hopeless. Joining Crosstown Church of Okmulgee in 1985, they continued to serve through a successful Prison Ministry called "He's Alive" with friends Jack and Lois Kolakowski, and a weekly prayer meeting for their community in their own home.
Barbara adored their blended family, and poured her time, energy, encouragement, and prayers into loving their children, 19 grandchildren, 33 great-grandchildren, and 9 great-great grandchildren. She will always be remembered for the spiritual legacy she leaves behind to all she loved and had the wonderful opportunity to serve.
