Rose Marie Frazier passed away peacefully on September 3, 2019 after 12 years of challenging health issues. She was born on January 26, 1941 to Alfred & Hazel (Nadeau) Mazerolle in Caratunk Maine. She attended school in the Bingham area graduating with the class of 1959. She married Ronald Frazier on July 11, 1959. Soon after she achieved her lifelong dream of having children and being a stay at home mom until all the children were in school.
In 1974 she began a 25 year career in the business office of MSAD 59 in Madison starting out as a secretary to the Superintendent and retiring as the District bookkeeper. To say she always had her hands full would be an understatement, but she managed to keep 4 kids and a household in order while working full time and also running a Longaberger Basket direct sales business where she met many life-long friends.
She enjoyed traveling and took trips with her siblings to the far corners of the earth including Egypt, France, and Monte Carlo. Closer to home she and Ron traveled to Hawaii, California, Nevada, Arizona, Ohio and several driving trips to east coast states and Florida, and she loved stopping at casinos that might be in the area.
In 1978 she and Ron bought some land on Clearwater Pond in Industry and built a small lake home where they spent many weekends and entertained lots of friends and family with Rose’s wonderful cooking skills.
Rose is survived by her children – Rhonda Emerson and husband Rich, Ross and long-time companion Michelle Corson, Russell and wife Andrea and Ramona Hupper. Grandchildren - Justin Hupper and wife Bridget and Jaclyn Frazier. Siblings – Pamela Murray of New Hampshire and Al Mazerolle of California. She is pre-deceased by her husband Ronald, parents and a sister, Patricia Pooler.
Rose’s funeral will be held on Saturday September 14 at 11am at Giberson Funeral Home, 40 Maple Street Madison. A reception luncheon will be held at the American Legion Hall, 20 South Maple Street Madison after the service. Burial will be at the Veteran’s Cemetery in Augusta at a later date.
