Mavis Irene Frazier of Austinville passed away peacefully Tuesday, Feb. 18, 2014.
Mom was a caretaker to her whole family and a constant prayer warrior.
No matter what was going on in our lives, we always knew we had mom in our corner praying for us. She will be greatly missed by her family and friends and her "farm family" of llamas, cows, goats, horses and chickens.
Heaven's gain is our loss.
Mom's favorite song was "Under His Wing"
from Psalm 91:
Think of the angels, they are surely here!
God has made this promise, so don't ever fear
They shall lift you up...in their hands they'll be keeping you
Under his wing till the journey is thru.
