EAGLE BRIDGE, N.Y. -- Ann Elizabeth (Bradley) Frazier of Concord and Eagle Bridge, N.Y., died May 7, 2007. She was the wife of the late James Alexander Frazier to whom she was married for 46 years.

Betty was born on July 31, 1916, in Union Springs, the eldest child of Grace (Balcom) and Charles Ambrose Bradley. She graduated from Union Springs High School, Ladies College in Halifax, Nova Scotia, and Acadia University. She interned and later worked as a dietitian at St. Luke’s Hospital in New York City, and became the chief dietitian at Mary McClellan Hospital in Cambridge. While working at the hospital she taught nutrition to students in the Skidmore College School of Nursing.

She and her husband owned and operated Frazier Farms, a dairy and poultry farm in Eagle Bridge, that has been the family home for over 100 years. She continued to manage the farm following his death in 1990.

While she delighted in cooking and especially in baking, most notably chocolate cake and her renowned apple pie, dining out even very recently was always enjoyed by her.

As a registered dietitian she held a 64 years of continuous membership in the American Dietetic Association. Over the years she was a member of the Cambridge New York Branch of the Women’s International Farm and Garden Association, Home Dem, Farm Bureau, Kitchen Konference, and the McClellan Hospital Auxiliary. Betty served as a 4H and Girl Scout leader; cultivating rose and vegetable gardens was a strong avocation. She was a parishioner of St. Patrick Church in Cambridge.

She is survived by two daughters, Margaret Ann Frazier-Plodzik, and her husband Kevin Thomas Plodzik of Concord; Mary Elizabeth Frazier-Davis of Manchester-by-the Sea; a grandson, James (Jas.) Frazier Davis, also of Manchester-by-The-Sea; a sister, Margaret Balcom Frazier of Hoosick Falls; a brother, Alfred Stuart Bradley of Pittsfield, Mass.; and numerous nephews and nieces. A brother, William Nelson Bradley, and a son, James Ambrose Frazier, predeceased her.

Following a wake and prayer service in Concord, Mass., visitation took place at the Ackley and Ross Funeral Home, Cambridge, N.Y., on Monday, May 14. A Mass of Christian Burial was celebrated at St. Patrick Church in Cambridge, New York at 11 a.m. on Tuesday, May 15. Concelebrants were Father James Mackey and Father Joseph Getz, OSA. Interment took place in the family plot in St. John the Baptist Cemetery, North Bennington, Vt.

For those who wish, contributions in Betty’s name may be made to the James Ambrose Frazier Memorial Scholarship, Cambridge Central Schools, in care of the funeral home at 73 West Main Street, Cambridge, NY 12816.

Local arrangements were under the care of the Ackley and Ross Funeral Home, Cambridge. For obituary or guestbook, visit www.deefuneralhome.com
