Emma Lou Frazier was born August 10, 1927 in Mineral Springs, Arkansas to Gertrude and Pinkerton White. Lou passed away September 8, 2020 without pain in Perham, Minnesota at the age of 93. Lou Frazier was preceded in death by her parents, Gertrude White (Steuart) and Pinkerton White, her husband, Luther Frazier, her brothers, Levi White, Henry Ford White, Clyde White, and sisters Dena Roberts (White), Myra Ruth Kennedy (White). She is survived by her only child, Thomas Frazier, and wife Janice, two granddaughters, Amanda Frazier and Bethany Frazier and their mother, Linda Price. She is also survived by many nieces, nephews, other family, and friends that she loved dearly.
More than anything she enjoyed her family. She was known for taking care of just about any and everybody. She especially loved taking care of the children. Lou enjoyed fishing, gardening, and cooking for the multitudes. She was always ready to take care of anyone in need. For fun, dominos was the game. O'Neal Davidson once said, “If you play Lou in dominos, you better be a good loser!”. She was that good.
Lou worked most of her life as a butcher in the grocery business. She was especially proud of her accomplishments as a butcher, given that women were not butchers in her day. She was also called on to train other men.
She lived in Mineral Springs and Nashville, Arkansas for most of her life. Lou, Luther, and Thom did move to locations in New Mexico, Texas, and Oklahoma for Luther's work. In 2010, she made the move to Minnesota to live with her son and daughter in-law, Thom, and Janice.
Lou was a founding member of New Mt. Zion Baptist Church and enjoyed her many years involvement in the church.
Services in Nashville, Arkansas will be scheduled when it is safe. Lou would not have wanted to put anyone at risk of COVID-19.
