Mary Frazier

October 12, 1937 — February 4, 2021

Mary Laine Frazier, 83, passed away peacefully on February 4, 2021.

Mary was born October 12, 1937 in Wichita, Kansas to Jesse and Delphia (Alexander) Nighswonger. She spent much of her childhood growing up on a farm in Hamilton, Missouri. When she was a teenager her family moved to Kansas City, where Mary graduated from Westport High School. She was married to Earl Frazier in 1956, and together they raised five boys. Through the years, she held various jobs but was primarily a devoted mother and fulltime housewife, caring for her family. She never missed one of their activities, whether it was a talent show, school play, wrestling meet or horse show. She especially enjoyed her time living on a farm near Lathrop where she raised pigs, cattle and especially loved her horses. She took great pleasure in opening her home for game nights and feasts with her large, extended family. She also liked putting together puzzles, singing hymns and reading her Bible. Her Christian faith was very important to her, and she was a longtime member of Liberty Church of Christ and later Northland Mission Church. Mary is preceded in death by her parents; husband, Earl; and brothers, Arthur and Jesse Nighswonger. She will be fondly remembered and greatly missed by her sons, Tom (Caron), Phil, Steve (Jamie), Rick (Cornelia) and Rob; 12 grandchildren; 9 great grandchildren; and sisters, Jean Norman and Linda Thomas.
