Mother Betty Jane Frazier was born on December 13, 1931 in Winona, Mississippi to John Lewis Doyle and Rosa Lee Doyle. She was preceded in death by her Father and Mother, her brothers Loran Doyle and John Edward Doyle Sr., her sister Grace Doyle Jacoway, her Husband, Deacon James Frazier, their daughter Peggy Frazier, and stepson Robert Wayne Frazier.
She attended Winona Elementary and Junior High School in Mississippi. She later relocated to Minnesota and then to St. Louis, Missouri where she met and married her husband James Frazier, and they were happily married for 44 years before he transitioned to his heavenly home.
Mother Betty Frazier was a support to her family, as she went above to ensure that their children received a good education. She was an active advocate for the youth living in her community and she was a political force as she impacted the community through legislative change. She worked on the political polls for many years and later became director of the organization Neighborhood Improvement National Association, which was an effective summer youth program which provided both employment and skill development. After many years of loyalty and commitment to her family and the community, her life was transformed.
In 1982, one of her goddaughters, Dorothy Turner, her daughter Judith Jones, Sister Jaynes Strong, and the Prayer Warriors, were compelled to visit her to serve the Word of the Lord. Mother Betty Frazier soon recognized she was in dire need of a savior. As faith which comes by hearing, Mother Betty Frazier heard the Word of the Lord and became Saved, under the leadership of Bishop Robert D. Strong Sr. at Kossuth Church of God in Christ, she later went on to receive the Holy Spirit and was water baptized with the evidence of speaking with holy tongues. She endured many tests and trials, but the Lord was faithful and brought her through them all. Mother Frazier was an intercessory prayer warrior, a mighty woman of God, a dedicated church Mother, and a Great woman of faith, who loved to worship God. She fought a good fight, she finished her course, and now has received her crown of elevation, a sure reward prepared for them who endure to the end. She loved the Lord, her family, and fellow saints. The Most High God requested her presence into His courts of praise to come home with Him on August 19, 2020.
Though she has physically departed, yet she’s forever in our hearts. She leaves three loving daughters, Rose Mary Doyle of Atlanta, Georgia and her two daughters Kimberley and Rebecca, Judith Jones (Brian) and their two daughters, Candace and Brianna, Linda Taylor (Shawn, Sr.) and their children, Janeisha, Ashley, Shawn Jr., Mi’Kayla, She’Kinah, Trinity, Caleb, and Hannah. Her stepson James Elle Frazier, stepdaughters Brenda Sue Frazier and Bobbie Frazier Brown, special daughters Dorothy Turner and Monique “Waynetta” Frazier, goddaughters Glennetta Haymon and Erin Strong Tyler, and godson Pastor Kenneth Williams (Johnetta). Mother Frazier had several other grandchildren, including Eva, Chanelle, Athina, Jamel, Robert Jr., Janice, Derrick, Stephanie, Richard Jr., and Crystal. Mother Frazier also had a host of stepchildren, nephews, nieces, great-grandchildren, great-great-grandchildren, cousins, friends, and godchildren, whom Mother Loved, cared for, and shared godly consultation. You know who you are, more than we can name. Mother cared for Miss Grace, who was like a sister, and all the lovely residents at Latter Glory. Please enter into peace if your name was not made known, no offense intended, and not a heart matter. We extend our Love at this place and time to everyone who she has ever known.
