Elizabeth Jean Carver Frizzell, 81, of Cape Coral, Florida and formerly of Brandon, Florida, passed away on Thursday, January 26, 2017. Jean, as she was known, was born on June 24, 1935, as the second of five daughters, born to William and Emma Carver. She grew up in Atlanta, Georgia, graduating from Sylvan Hills High School, in 1953. Her gentle, caring nature, led her to a career in nursing. She attended St. Joseph's Infirmary School of Nursing, graduating as a registered nurse in 1956. She practiced nursing for many years in Atlanta, Georgia until she relocated to Florida, in 1973, to be closer to her parents and her beloved sister, Ruby, who was terminally ill with cancer.
She spent the remainder of her life in Florida, working in several hospitals in Tampa, most notably Tampa Women's Hospital, in the labor and delivery section. Her gentle nature and patience assisted hundreds of mothers and babies in safe and healthy deliveries.
Jean had one son, Christopher Scott Frizzell, who was the joy of her life, and his wife Cindy. Jean was a part of a large close, and loving family which included her three surviving sisters, Delois Carver Brown, of Valrico; Wilma Carver Tucker, of Chattanooga, Tennessee; Nelda Carver Plunket, of Marietta, Georgia, and several nieces, nephews and their families.
She was pre-deceased by her parents, William and Emma Carver; beloved sister, Ruby Carver Helis, brother-In-law Raymond Helis, brother-in-law Joseph E. Brown and her nephew Buster Tucker. They are all reunited in Heaven together.
Jean loved reading, history, and collected angels, dolls, Native American culture and babies.
She experienced a massive stroke on January 18, 2017 which led to her passing on January 26, 2017. She passed peacefully surrounded by her loved ones and angels. She will be greatly missed by all.
A funeral mass will be celebrated on Wednesday, February 1, 2017, at 11am, at Nativity Catholic Church, Brandon, Florida.
