Fairlee Koen Carter Trimble born Saturday, March 9, 1924 in Quail, Texas; went home to Christ Sunday, December 2, 2017 from her residence in Colbert, Ok. She was predeceased by her parents Walter and Hattie Koen, her adopted father William Carter, and her loving husband Johnnie Kenneth Trimble, her sisters Floetta and Twyla, and her brother Lowell. Her former son-in-law Herschel Ray Nix, and Janet Loyd the mother of her granddaughter Ashley Ortiz.

Fairlee is survived by her loving children; daughter Charlotte Abrams, sons Randy and wife Beth, Stormye and wife Pauline, Fabian and wife Nance, her grandchildren Alecia Adams, Shane Nix, Neosha Trimble, Brandon Trimble, Jason Klint House, Shane Hill, Brandi Hill, Ashley Ortiz and our Devin, many great-grandchildren, great-great-grandchildren, and her brother-in-law Royce Trimble.

Fairlee was loved and admired by her friends and co-workers. She was a business woman with an analytical mind; she co-founded the revolutionary approach to successfully breeding race horses. Computer Horse Breeders had a profound impact of putting new ideas into the old industry of horse racing. The bio-mechanical formula and method used for evaluating, analyzing, and breeding was the legacy she passed on to the industry.

Fairlee loved her family, loved the beauty of nature, and loved the Lord. She left a lasting impression on all she met with her warm smile and gentle nature. She will be loved by her family until the twelfth of never.

Family hour will be from 6:00 to 8:00 Tuesday evening December 5, 2017; funeral services will be at 2:00 on Wednesday December 6, 2017 at Bratcher Funeral Home Chapel in Denison, Texas. She will be laid to rest beside her husband at Fairview Cemetery in Denison, TX.
