Obituary: FRAZIER COOPER, MIRRIAM

Mirriam Frazier Cooper1934 ~ 2013Our loving, irascible, devoted mother, granny and friend finally "got on the bus" and headed for her next destination on the morning of December 2, 2013. Her loved ones were there to see her off and her departure was peaceful and surrounded with love. Born June 25, 1934, in Salt Lake City, Utah to Elizabeth Legg and William Studham, Mirriam was known by those closest to her as "Tootie", a nickname given to her by her father. The youngest of four children and "Daddy's Girl," as a young girl Tootie was a talented accordion player and roller skater. Later in life, she developed talents in sewing, crochet and embroidery. Tootie married Donald Eugene Frazier in 1949, and together raised four children. They divorced in 1979 and she married Donald Eugene Cooper in 1981, remaining married to Mr. Cooper until his death in 1999. Preceded in death by her father, siblings, son, Michael Frazier, mother, daughter-in-law, Peggy Giles Frazier, and first and second husbands, Mirriam is survived by her daughter Judy Hauser, sons Vern and Dan Frazier (Susan), six grandchildren, 17 great grandchildren and one great-great grandchild. Those wishing to see Mirriam off are invited to join her family and friends for graveside services on Thursday, December 5, at 1:00 PM in the Taylorsville City Cemetery, Taylorsville, Utah.Farewell, dear lady. We will meet again, and when we do, we'll know each other as we always have. "For you are unforgettable in every way, and forever more, that's how you'll stay."
