Mary Ellen Frazier of Chattanooga, TN lost her battle with Alzheimer’s on November 26, 2018. Mary was born in Rochester, NH on January 5, 1943 and graduated from Spaulding High School. After meeting her husband, Gerald “Jerry” Frazier, who was in the Navy, they spent many years stationed at various naval bases throughout the United States. Eventually they settled down in Jerry’s hometown of Cleveland, Tennessee, where Mary worked for Wholesale Supply Group and sold Avon. Mary was a President’s Club level Avon representative for many years. In later years, Mary moved to Chattanooga to be closer to her daughter, and worked at Ferguson Enterprises and finished out her working career at NHC Healthcare of Chattanooga, from where she retired.
She was preceded in death by her husband, Gerald Douglas Frazier.
She is survived by her daughters: Susie Frazier McHenry (Matt) of Chattanooga, TN and Denise Michelle Janutolo; and her grandson, Victor Torres of Donna, TX. She is also survived by her brother, Fred Cote, Sr.; her sister-in law, Lisa Frazier Harrington; brother-in-law, Bill Frazier; nieces, Melissa Harrington White and Lisa Cote Brooks; and nephews Fred Cote, Jr., and Jason Harrington.
The family would like to express their gratitude to Southern Heritage Assisted Living, Martin Boyd Christian Home and NHC Healthcare of Chattanooga for making Mary’s final years as comfortable as possible.
