Funeral Service for Freddie Mae (Ballard) Reid, 85, of Sallisaw, Oklahoma will be at 2:00 PM on Friday, October 22, 2021 at Blunt Baptist Church in Sallisaw, Oklahoma.

Freddie Mae Ballard was born July 20, 1936 in Sycamore, Oklahoma to Claud and Ola Ballard. She passed this life on October 18, 2021 in Tahlequah Oklahoma. She married the love of her life, Leroy Reid, on May 24, 1957 and they set out to build a beautiful life together, always serving Christ and others from the start. Freddie was primarily seen as a 1st grade teacher and elegantly dressed Pastor’s wife but she was so much more. During the depression she was a field worker and as a young woman she worked on a Marine base and as a telephone operator. Her intelligence was only matched by her wittiness and beauty. Freddie did have one main flaw, chronic lateness.

Survivors are:

3 sons, Roy and Sherree Reid of Coweta, OK, Leslie and Lynn Reid of Coweta, OK, and Glen and Lindsey Reid of Sallisaw, OK;

1 daughter, Rene’ Blount of Sallisaw, OK;

11 grandchildren and 18 great-grandchildren;

2 sisters, Ruth Ballard of Tahlequah, OK and Roberta Ward of Edmond, OK;

1 brother, David Ballard of Marlow, OK;

several other relatives and friends.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Leroy Reid; her favorite son-in-law, Steve Blount; parents, Claud and Ola Ballard; and three sisters, Loretta Mattingly, Claudette Hopkins and Nell Owens.

Active Pallbearers will be her grandchildren, Chad Reid, Justin Reid, Marty Blount, Derrick Blount, Jacob Blount and Marlissa Sheffield.

Viewing and Visitation will be 10 AM – 8 PM Thursday at Agent Mallory Martin Funeral Home in Sallisaw, OK where the family will greet 6 – 8 PM.
