“Kathryn is joining her late husband of 44 years, Peter J. Frazier,” her family wrote. “The family would like to state our mom handled the news of her illness with grace, and fought hard to live her remaining days on her terms, which she did. We love you, Mom.”


Kathryn E. Frazier is survived by sons, Joseph P. Frazier and Kristen Mirabile, and Kevin M. Frazier and his wife, Kimberly; by her grandchildren, Joseph, Nicholas, and Jacob; and by her great-grandchildren, Landon and Leila.
