My prayers are with the Fry family. She is one of the most amazing women I have ever met. I learned so much from her, she has left a recipe for life with her loving family.
Mom, You are greatly missed. You loved life and all there was about about simply living . You told great stories of you life, I will miss that. So glad I was able to spend quality time with you during dad’s and your illnesses. I wouldn’t have missed it for the world. I loved our Sunday morning together with Jesus and a hearty breakfast.
Will love you and miss you forever.

Growing up next door to the The Fry Family, I could see that Mrs. Fry (she was always that to me) was a wonderful woman. She was kind and very involved with, and the center of, her family. The kids on the block loved her and were welcome in the house (just don’t jump on the beds!). She was busy doing all the things a wife & mother did but still had time for the kid next door.
The Fry girls grew up to be just like their mother which is wonderful. She will be missed by many.
Donna Thrailkill says
