Mariann Frazier Nicholas

Mariann Frazier Nicholas, 84, of Litchfield Park, AZ died with her children by her side on May 8th. She was born August 20, 1936, an only child to Margaret and Milby ‘Ted’ Frazier.

Mariann worked as a 1st grade teacher at Buckeye Elementary for 25 years. Her students adored her; she was the teacher who had hissing cockroaches as class pets! In later years, she ran estate sales and found beauty in antiques as well as in sea glass, seashells, and even in a horseshoe crab.

Mariann was a talented and adventurous woman who loved her many trips to Mexico and a memorable excursion to South Africa. Her most cherished role, however, was that of mother, grandmother, and friend. With her warm personality, ability to entertain, and love of stories, she hosted family and friends every Christmas Eve, Easter, and many other days in between.

Left to continue her legacy are her loving children and their spouses, Brad (Debbie), Mark (Denise) and Sara; her adored grandchildren, Tristane, Christopher, and Maximilian; and many more extended family and friends. Service 11 AM, Thursday, May 27 at St. Peter’s Episcopal Church, 400 S. Old Litchfield Road, Litchfield Park, AZ.
