GRACE ElAINE FRAZIER
Grace Frazier (nee Marker) passed away peacefully Thursday September 23, 2021, at Elyria University Hospital after a valiant fight, from breakthrough Covid. Her sister Loretta was with her when she gained her wings.
Grace Elaine Marker, our GEM, was born in Lorain, OH on May 5, 1965, the youngest daughter of John W. and Kathleen (Kay) Marker. She attended Jane Lindsey Elementary, Longfellow Junior High and graduated in 1983 from Lorain High School. She went on to get her degree from LCCC and worked as an x-ray technician for many years at Mercy Hospital in Lorain before her retirement due to her health.
Grace was a caring and loving person. Even with her issues she helped care for both her Mom and mother-in-law when their health was declining. For many years she cared for her disabled husband and especially the past eight months after he was diagnosed with cancer. She always cared for others even with her debilitating health issues.
She enjoyed bingo, her flowers, sunsets at Lakeview Park and Baileys Irish Cream in her coffee! Gracie always looked forward to spending time with her family and friends. Over the past couple years Grace looked forward to the "sisters lunches" with her four sisters. The most recent one last month, with all five of us girls talking and laughing for several hours, while enjoying a picnic lunch outside. It was a lovely afternoon, that her sisters will always cherish. This lunch especially, espoused the sister love we had and this is how her four sisters choose to remember Gracie.
Grace is survived by her children whom she dearly loved. Thoms Widman of Lorain and Amanda Frazier of Pittsburgh, PA. In addition, she is survived by her four sisters Beth (Bill) Henley and Loretta Marker of Lorain., Phyllis (Richard) Donnelly of Bay Village and Margaret Marker (Jeff)) of Lakewood. She is also survived by several nieces and nephews. She will be missed by her lifelong friend and birthday buddy James, who credits Grace for the backyard pool that all the neighborhood kids enjoyed. She will also be missed by her longtime friend Shelly.
She was preceded in death by her husband of 29 years, on September 3, 2021. Her parents, grandparents, brother Patrick and sister Susan in infancy, and sister Robin Ann.
Due to Covid, there will be no public viewing. Grace's sisters, along with her daughter will have a private celebration of her life at a later date.
Gracie would want you to get vaccinated to help stop the spread of this horrific virus, and wear a mask. Memorial contributions can be made in Grace's memory to any Shriners Children,s Hospital.
