Roseanne Frazier passes in 2009

The web site in the obit is no longer up. I did not find out until quite a while after she passed.

KATHRYN ROSANNE ALLEN FRAZIER, 71, a loving wife, mother, grandmother, and sister, died on Tuesday, April 21, 2009, at her home in Seabrook, Texas, surrounded by family, after a courageous six month battle with pancreatic cancer. Her wonderful, positive attitude was a real inspiration to all.

Rosanne was born on May 23, 1937, near Carmi, Illinois, to Samuel James Allen and Mattie Maye Butler Allen. She was preceded in death by her parents and her brothers James Butler Allen and William Lee Allen.

She is survived by her loving husband of 52 years, Bill E. Frazier, and her children, Kimberly Ann Leach and husband Doug of Houston, her son Kyle Allen Frazier and wife Analisa of Houston, and her son Mark Eric Frazier and wife Brenda, of San Antonio; her grandchildren, Alexa Catherine Leach and Ashley Elizabeth Leach of Houston, Austin Ryan Frazier, Andrew Allen Frazier, Taylor Reagan Frazier, and Reed Blaschke Frazier of San Antonio, and Kyle Brandt Frazier and Madeleine Marie Frazier of Houston; her dear sister, Georgia Allen Friggle of Victoria, Texas; brothers-in-law Charles Frazier and wife Lavonne, and Jerre Frazier and wife Lu; and numerous nieces, nephews, and other relatives.

Rosanne's greatest joys in life were her family, her friends and her love of art and genealogy. Her love and commitment to her family was at the heart of all she did. She was a devoted and loving friend to those she came to know in the many organizations in which she was active - Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo School Art Committee Judge, Clipt Wings, Bay Area Art League, Houston Symphony League, Houston Bar Auxiliary and many more. A life-long Methodist, she was an active member of Seabrook UMC.

Raised on her parent's farm in White County, Illinois, she forever valued her Midwestern roots. She attended a one-room school through eighth grade, graduated from Carmi H.S. in 1954, and studied fine arts at the University of Illinois, where she was selected as an Illio Beauty. She was also selected in 1955 as Miss Illinois REA. After two years of college she moved to Washington, DC, to become a flight attendant for Capital Airlines, where she met her husband, Bill, a lieutenant in the U.S. Army stationed at Fort Belvoir, Virginia. They were married on December 6, 1956. After moving to Timber Cove, she obtained a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Houston.

Her greatest passion, instilled in her at a young age by her mother, was art. After graduating from college, she continued to study art throughout her life, attending workshops around the country. She was privileged to study for years under world renowned portrait artist Lajos Markos. Gifted with a special talent for painting portraits, her subjects included generals, astronauts, judges, corporate executives, and families. Selected as an artist for the U.S. Coast Guard Art Collection, her work is displayed throughout the country. Her work is being featured at the Bay Area Museum Guild's 25th Anniversary Silver Tea on May 3rd and can be viewed at www.rosannefrazier.com.

Her family is especially grateful to Dr. Robert Wolff at MD Anderson for his kind, thoughtful and loving approach to her care and, most importantly, to her dear sister Georgia. For those desiring to honor Rosanne's memory, please consider the Pacgene Fund for the Pancreatic Cancer Family Study at MD Anderson, P.O. Box 4486, Houston, Texas 77210; the building fund at Seabrook United Methodist Church, 4004 Nasa Parkway, Seabrook, Texas 77586; or the charity of your choice.

A visitation will be held from 2:00 to 5:00 p.m. on Sunday, April 26th at Forest Park East Funeral Home, 21620 I-45. A private burial at Forest Park Lawndale will precede a memorial service at noon on Monday, April 27th at St. Paul's United Methodist Church, 5501 S. Main, Houston, Texas. A reception will follow. We are forever grateful for the tremendous support and encouragement of friends and family during her illness.
