December 17, 1942 - July 23, 2020
Molly Moore Frazier, 77, of Myrtle Beach, passed away July 23, 2020. Molly was born December 17, 1942, in Crafton, PA, the daughter of the late William and Frances Moore. Molly grew up in Crafton before attending Denison University in Granville, OH, where she received her bachelor of fine arts degree. She then received her master of education degree from the University of Pittsburgh before becoming an elementary art teacher in Long Island, NY.
In 1965, Molly went on a blind date with a West Point cadet and met the love of her life, Billy Frazier. Molly and Billy married November 19, 1966, and started an adventurous and long life together, including over 20 years in the military, living in Germany and all over the United States before settling in Fairview, TX. They had one last opportunity to live overseas in Leicestershire, England before ultimately retiring in the Texas Hill Country town of Boerne.
Molly was a devoted wife and mother of three children. She loved art, wildflowers, birds and her church. She loved Texas, living in the Texas Hill Country and was so happy to have met and married a Texan! She and Billy loved to travel and were truly blessed to enjoy many trips in their nearly 54 years of marriage.
In 2016, Molly and Billy moved to the beach in South Carolina to be close to their younger grandchildren. Molly loved being back at the beach and always had fond memories of her childhood summers at the beaches in New York.
Molly is survived by her loving husband, Lieutenant Colonel (Retired) Billy Frazier; her son and daughter-in-law, Lieutenant Colonel (Retired) James and Dorothy Frazier of Virginia; her daughter and son-in-law, Laura and Tom Rice of Ohio; and her daughter and son-in-law Jenny and Erik Secker of South Carolina; as well as five grandchildren: First Lieutenant Scott Frazier and his wife, Callie, Kaela Frazier, Garrett Frazier, Egan Secker and Sawyer Secker. She is also survived by her sister and brother-in-law, Colonel (Retired) Jerry and Marion Cecil of Kentucky.
