June 19, 1935 - February 29, 2020
Velma Marie Frazier was born on June 19th, 1935 to Tobias Frazier and Ancey Hampton in Talihina, Oklahoma and that is where she lived most of her life. She went home to her Lord and Savior on February 29th, 2020 in Tulsa, Oklahoma with her family by her side. Today she is there with Jesus, rejoicing and singing his praises, laughing her beautiful laugh with her loved ones by her side. Velma loved the Lord and she could lift your spirits with her quick smile and a twinkle in her eyes. She was so proud of her family, and she encouraged (pushed) them to be their best; to live out the great potential she could see in them. She guided them (told them what to do) to reach that potential, with much of that advice focusing on loving the Lord, serving others and working hard. Velma loved people. Strangers were just someone she hadn't met yet. She was proud of her Choctaw heritage and she loved to cook. When you put the two together it was pure magic. She loved to share traditional meals like Tanchi Labona, Banaha, pinto beans, wild onions and corn bread with her family and friends. When she threw in blackberry cobbler or fried pies for dessert, she had you right where she wanted you. She taught many young people how to prepare the traditional dishes of the Choctaw people, feeling it was important that the ways be remembered. She was an interesting and fun cooking teacher, telling stories as she worked. Velma was skilled at gardening and canning, and she loved to fish, but her laugh was the happiest when she was spending time with her family. Velma was a hard worker and liked to be busy. After a life of work and raising a family, she was not ready to be quiet and retire, so she went to work for the Choctaw Nation as an operator at the Talihina Hospital when she was 80 years old. She greeted everyone that came in, or called, with the same kindness, friendly smile and twinkly eyes. She loved people, but even more than that, people loved her. She will be missed by all who knew her. She is survived by her son, Anthony King and wife Lynnidean; daughter, Teresa Eagle Road, and husband Bill; grandchildren, Tracy King, Toni King and husband B.J., Kenneth King and wife Jamie, Nikki Eagle Road, Billy Eagle Road III, and Jordan Eagle Road and wife Makenzie; great grandchildren, Desmine King, RaeLynn King, Kennie King, Emalyne King, Lydia Dean, Kailie King, Brendine King, Tomi Ludlow, Raben King, Tiger King, Kojah King, and Nakaiah King; great-great grandchildren, Jordan Eagle Road II, Oakleigh Duncan, and Addison Samson; sisters, Betty Novak and husband John, and Sue Daney, and many nieces, nephews, cousins and a host of friends she considered family. Velma was preceded in death by her parents, Tobias and Ancey; brother, Toby Frazier Jr.; sisters, Doris Pettyjohn, Helen Hatton, and Carol Frazier, and her husband, Kenneth Angel. Memorial Services will be on Tuesday, March 10th, 2020 at 2:00PM at Green Hill Baptist Church in Talihina, Oklahoma with Bro. Raymond Johnson officiating. Cremation Services are being provided by McCarn Funeral Service of Talihina, Oklahoma.
