Phyllis “Feef” Fraser Girard

“God saw you getting tired
A cure was not to be
So he put his arms around you
And whispered, come with me”
 
Born February 12, 1948 to Tom and Helen Mary Fraser. She died on April 6, 2014, after gracefully enduring four years of treatment for ovarian cancer.
 
Phyllis graduated from Hillcrest High School in Dallas in 1965 and attended Trinity University in San Antonio. She was employed as a bookkeeper for Walnut Place Nursing Home for 28 years until her retirement in 2010.
 
She enjoyed 10k walks with several walking clubs, canoe/camping trips, Texas Rangers baseball, swimming, reading, and live country music. She loved her family and friends very much and particularly liked letting others know she cared by sending greeting cards- via the U.S. mail. She will be remembered for her kind and gentle spirit and her sunshine smile.

I never saw Phyllis without a smile. She will be greatly missed. I’ll be taking my Dad to a memorial for his cousin at 2:00 or I would be at Phyllis’s memorial. Bob and I send our deepest sympathy.

Excellent customer service, they made you feel like you were their only customer. Very helpful and explained what we should expect during the process. They basically took care of our needs during this time. They contacted DFW National Cemetery for us which made it a smooth experience. Definitely will use them again.
