Mrs. Flora Frazer, a Widely Known Lady, Died Last Sunday Forenoon
Funeral Services This Morning
A sad death, not wholly unexpected, occurred last Sunday forenoon, about ten o’clock, when Mrs. Flora Frazer, a highly respected lady, died at the home of her daughter, Mrs. W. B. Patteson, this place. Her demise was not unexpected, as she had been on the decline for several weeks, and those nearest and dearest to her, knew that the time for the final dissolution was approaching.
The deceased was born and reared in Greensburg, but at the time of her marriage to Mr. Thomas H. Frazer, of this place, she resided with her parents, Mr. and Mrs. J. M. S. McKorkle, in Louisville. This marriage occurred in either 1863 or 64, and soon thereafter she came to Columbia to live, and it was here where her children were born and reared. Her father was prominent and for a number of years he was Grand Secretary of the Grand Masonic Lodge of Kentucky, and if we remember correctly, held that office at the time of his death. The deceased was 77 years old, a member of the Presbyterian Church, and was active in all the affairs of the organization, doing all she could to advance the cause of Christ.
She was a lady of delicate taste, admired by all who knew her. She will ever be remembered as one who lived in this community, her examples and walks through life inspiring those who had the utmost confidence in her Christian piety, ever ready to do all she could for the unfortunate. Nearly all her children reached here in time to see the remains before carried to the tomb.
Her life and admonitions are a priceless heritage to her five sons and four daughters. May God comfort them in this sad hour, is the wish of the writer.
The funeral services were conducted by Dr. Merrill of Campbellsville, this Tuesday morning, at 10 o’clock, and the interment was in the city cemetery. There were many flowers.
Sons and daughters of the deceased, who live away from this locality, and who were here to attend the funeral are J. T. Frazer, Dallas, Texas; J. M. Frazer, Danville, Kentucky; Robert G. Frazer, Windsor, Missouri; Mrs. J. F. Cabell, Gresham, Kentucky; Mrs. M. H. Sandlin, Minden, Louisiana; Mrs. J. B. McCain, Shreveport, Louisiana.
