The Legacy of Mrs. Earnestine Frazier
God sent a blessing of His creation into this world to the parents Tim Hefflin and Jewel Trice Hefflin on March 17th 1944. To this union there were 8 children. She was the youngest of this union. She was preceded in death by her siblings Mae Willie Walker, Pauline Posey, Henry (Pete) Hefflin, Ruby Boyd, Mary Kate Boyd, Arthur Hefflin, Demetris Smith, and Sammie Hefflin.
She began her education in the Schley County school system. Later in life she completed her diploma in education in the Marion County school system. She accepted Christ as her personal Savior. She was a faithful member of Mahalia Chapel A.M.E. Church of Buena Vista where she served as secretary until she could no longer serve in the position. She was united in holy matrimony to Mr. James Allen Frazier of Buena Vista, Ga who preceded her in death. To this union were four sons Willie Frazier, Alonzo Frazier, Herbert Frazier, (Bobby Carlee Frazier preceded her in death) and daughter Marilyn Frazier.
She worked many different jobs until she started her career as a Food Service Worker at John Lewis High School before transferring to the Marion County Board of Education where she retired as a Food Service Worker from Tri County High School with over 30 years of service in the industry, servicing the Marion, Schley, and Webster Counties and beyond communities. Her life was touched by many students during the nearly 4 decades, some who would still talk about her cooking of yeast rolls and other dishes at school.
She enjoyed and love people and they loved her. One of her many passions was cooking and making people happy. She didn’t have a favorite dish she cooked everything especially known for her cakes and collard greens. She love visiting other ministries and listening to gospel music and Bishop GE Patterson. She loved her family, children, and friends. She love traveling and looked forward to the family reunions.
We rejoice not as those who have no hope because our hope is built on nothing less than Jesus Blood and righteousness. We are truly thankful for the life she lived and the lives that touched her and the lives she touched. Her soul was set free on October 31, 2022. We rejoice that she took back that day to reflect on the true meaning Hallo (Holy) for the word said that we must be Holy for He is Holy. She has run her race and finished her course. Rejoice that her name is written in the Lamb Book of Life.
She leave to cherish her memories, her children Willie Frazier (Ineda) of Smyrna, GA, Alonzo Frazier of Ellaville, GA, Herbert (Veronica) of Columbus, GA, Marilyn Frazier of Ellaville, GA., Stepchildren Elizabeth Blanford and Stepson Nathan Blanford, her sister Helen Hart of Ellaville, GA, Sister-in-law Mary Barnette of East Point, GA, Brother-in-law Henry Smith of East Point, GA, Grandchildren Clifford Dawson, Monique Sales, Nicolas Frazier, Justin Frazier, Shevonne Johnson, Sebrena Riley, Seadric Williams, LaShanda Williams, LaMarcus Williams, Arlencia Williams Powell, Nieces Laronda (Robert) Holmes and Janice (Donald) Cottle, and a host of Greatgrands, and countless precious nieces, nephews, cousins, countless friends and beloved lifelong friend Isabelle (Red) Walton, Her Pastoral families Pastor John Williams and Family and Pastor Gerald Harris and Family.
