Teresa Garrison Frazier, 56, of Crozet passed away on Sunday, November 5, 2017, surrounded by her loving family.



Born on May 18, 1961, Teresa was the daughter of Juanita Shifflett Garrison and the late Henry Thomas Garrison. In addition to her father, she was preceded in death by her mother-in-law, Lillian Frazier; father-in-law, Leland Frazier; and grandmothers, Celia Garrison and Cora Shifflett.



Teresa is survived by her high school sweetheart, and husband of 37 years, David Frazier; her daughter, Christina "Tina" Staton and her husband, Alan; her son, Jason Frazier and his wife, Brittany, all of Crozet. In addition to her husband and children, she is survived by her mother, Juanita Garrison, of Crozet; and two brothers, Norman Garrison, of Crozet, and Thomas Garrison, and his wife, Karen and their children Amanda Lawhorne and Shawn Garrison of Keswick. Also left to cherish her memory are the four most precious people in her life, her grandchildren, Austin Ryan Staton, Lily Grace Staton, Avery Rose Frazier, and Ellie Kate Frazier, who she loved with all of her soul as they gave her reason to move forward every day. Teresa will also be sorely missed by Jessica Schneiderman, Eric Bibb, and Lucille Norvell, who were very special in her life. She also leaves behind her three dachshunds, or fur children, Cody, Jake, and Dexter.



For 17 years, Teresa battled an autoimmune disease that pushed her body to its every limit. She fought her disease on a daily basis, and endured so much pain for the sake of having "a little more time" with her family. She loved her husband, children, grandchildren, and dogs as much as humanly possible. She would have done anything for them, and they all knew her as the best Wife, Mama, and Nana that anyone could ever have. She could not have been more perfect. Despite all that she went through, she always made her family feel like they were the most important things in her world. She was so brave, and strong. It is utterly remarkable to think back on the strength that she demonstrated and the love that she showed.



Teresa was a long time member of Crozet United Methodist Church. Most of her working career was spent as an Administrative Assistant at Montague Miller, The Miller School, and The Virginia School of Massage.



The family expresses their most sincere gratitude to Dr. Kevin McConnell and DaVita Dialysis for the loving care and comfort they provided Teresa.



A funeral service will be conducted 2 p.m. Friday, November 10, 2017, at Crozet United Methodist Church, with the Rev. Sarah Evancho officiating. Interment will follow at Prize Hill Cemetery. Following the committal service a time of food and fellowship will be held at Good Shepherd of the Hills Episcopal Church.



The family will receive friends from 6 until 8 p.m. Thursday, November 9, 2017, at Teague Funeral Home.



Memorial contributions may be made in Teresa’s memory to the National Kidney Foundation, kidney.org, or Dachshund Rescue of North America, drna.org.
