Dozens Of Oklahoma First Responders Remember Sisters Killed In Crash

ANTLERS, OK- Friends and family gathered Friday to remember two sisters killed in a Pontotoc County crash. Oklahoma Troopers say Brooke and Becky Trotter died Sunday when their SUV was hit by a car driven by Shawn Jones.

Brooke was a paramedic and Becky was a nurse at a local hospital. That accident happened about three miles east of Ada on Oklahoma Highway 3E. Their funeral was held in their hometown of Antlers.

Brooke and Becky Trotter were two women that spent their lives giving back to others. At their funeral on Friday, Antlers EMS as well as others from surrounding areas paid their respects.

"It's just been a bad loss. A real bad loss," said family friend BJ Hedgecock.

It was day of mourning in the city Antlers. Up to 800 friends and family filled the Antlers High School gym to remember two sisters who touched the lives of many.

"A blessing. They were a blessing to this community," said family friend Jarod Hatcher.

Friends say the Trotter sisters had hearts bigger than this world and recalled childhood memories.

"Brooke was in the sixth grade and kept coming up to us to talk to us and Bryan was like get away, and there was big mud hole and he just pushed her in the mud hole and got her all wet and Brooke was just furious at me and Bryan over that," said Hatcher.

The Trotter sisters worked in the medical field. Six counties teamed up and 67 fire trucks and ambulances lead the sisters to their final resting place.

"They came from everywhere to show their respects and give them the right way out I believe. I saw departments from Caney and all way over. It just shows how much everyone knew them girls, worked and cared for them," said Hedgecock.

As the city begins to heal from the terrible loss, friends left today knowing one thing.

"I believe the girls would be proud to how much they've impacted how much people cared for them," said Hedgecock.

A benefit fish fry is scheduled to help raise money for the family. It'll take place on October 6th at 6p.m. It will be held at the county fair barn in Antlers. A live auction will be taking place also. To help the Trotter family you can donate at First Bank of Antlers or check out the created GoFundMe page.
