ENID — Funeral for Mrs. Virginia Frazee of Enid will be 10 a.m. Monday, March 18, 2013, at First United Methodist Church, Enid, with Dr. Grayson Lucky officiating. Burial will follow in Memorial Park Cemetery under direction of Brown-Cummings Funeral Home.

She was born in Ardmore, OK, to Joshua Harper and Leila Darby Jeffries Smither on August 28, 1912, and died peacefully in her home on March 8, 2013.

Virginia was an active member of First United Methodist Church of Enid in a number of areas during her membership, which spanned some 50 years. She was a life member and past president of Bass Baptist Hospital Auxiliary and member of World Organization of China Painters.

Her most significant contribution was her work at home as the matriarch of an ever-growing family, spread across much of the country. Her home was always at the ready to accept and graciously serve visiting family and friends. Virginia was a caring woman and always tried to be a good mother and grandmother. She succeeded.

Virginia was preceded in death by her husband, Lloyd R. Frazee; daughter, Ann Frazee-Riley and step-son James Frazee; three brothers and one sister. She is survived by daughter Maudean Gustafson and husband Larry of Lincoln, NE; four granddaughters: Cheryl Roberts of Apple Valley, MN; Jill Machacek and husband Rod of Lincoln, NE, Amy Traynor and husband Dan of Houston, TX, and Emily Hladik and husband Todd of Washington, DC; nine great-grandchildren: Brian Roberts, Kelly Machacek, Kristen Machacek, Noah Hladik, Craig Roberts, Liam Traynor, Anna Hladik, Olivia Virginia Traynor and Virginia Grace Hladik; two nephews, Jack Smither and family of Dallas, TX, and Don Roberts and family of Clipper Mills, CA; and dear friend and cousin Burney Smither, Enid.

Memorials can be given in her name to First United Methodist Church of Enid and Integris Bass Baptist Heath Center, with Brown-Cummings serving as custodian of the funds. Condolences may be made at
