Sharon Helton Frailey, of Buford, GA went to be with God on Sunday, June 9, 2013. She is preceded in death by her parents, Jack and Ladell Helton. She leaves behind numerous relatives and friends that she called family. Her loving partner, David Stephens, shares his grief with Bob Frailey ; sons, Tyler Frailey and Jackson Frailey; brother, Yancy Helton, and sister, Teresa Helton Sembrat. Sharon's two children were her passion and her delight. She was a wonderful, loving, and devoted mother, sister, friend, and person. She was also an active member in her community, church, and several social groups. She worked as a legal secretary, but her primary calling was being a mother to her two wonderful sons, Jackson and Tyler Frailey. She spent her childhood in Rome, Georgia, but later called the Atlanta area her home for much of her adult life. A memorial service will be held at 4:00 pm, Saturday, June 15, 2013 at Wages & Sons Gwinnett Chapel with Rev. Gary Tesh officiating. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made, in memory of Sharon, to National CASA Association Court Appointed Special Advocate for abused & neglected children, 100 West Harrison, North Tower, Suite 500, Seattle, WA 98119.
