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. Condolences may be offered to the family at teaguefuneralhome.com.

David and family,
God gives us the beautiful gift of life. He gives us the free will to live and enjoy life. He gives us a chance to fall in love. He gives us the opportunity to start a family. Death can only part you from Teresa for a while until you reunite with her in heaven forever.
Death is the bridge that takes us toward eternal life of happiness and peace.
Remember all the precious memories that you had together, it helps get you through each day.

Its hard to know what to say, besides im thinking about you. Im so sorry for the loss of a wonderful person. She was not only the kind of woman people wanted to be, she was the kind of woman people would be proud to be. Life... so fragile, loss.... so sudden, heart.... so broken,... in the wake of such a loss, we are haunted by things we dont, and may never understand. Yet the solace we seek may never come from answers. So we look for comfort in the belief of loves everlasting connection. May that love lift you and hold you close. And give you peace. Our deepest sympathies during your time of loss. Please know we are here for you with love, we are here for the family and we miss our dear lost beautiful woman. teresa.

I am so sorry and saddened to hear of your loss. It has been so many years since I had seen Teresa and as I look over the beautiful family pictures the ones I remember the most were of her childhood and teenage years. These are the times I most remember spending time with her until everyone grew up and went separate ways. Please know that Mom (Betty), brother (Troy) and I are all deeply saddened and will be praying for you all.

Tina - I will always remember your mama's sweet smiling face at all of our softball games in high school and all of the wonderfully southern dinners she cooked you and I at your house. The first day I brought home my dog (who today is 16.5 years old and snoring next to me) from the pound your family had me over for dinner and your mom made him a plate of Mac and cheese, milk soaked cornbread, and chicken. She was always so sweet and gentle. David - my heart breaks for you as well. My family (and mom) has also suffered in the loss of a life-long love gone too soon. It is so very hard. Thank you to your family for always being so wonderful to me. I know how strong your love and your faith is, and your mom will be loved and honored for eternity. I know we are all relieved that she is no longer in pain but goodness is it just so hard for the rest of us. You will all be in my thoughts.

Teresa Frazier was often a patient in our care. Her daughter, Christina was my manager at the time. Christina garnered a tremendous amount of respect from the staff as a colleague, friend, and a shepherd through the tribulation of providing medical care in this modern age. When Teresa arrived to the unit, her care held a special place. Not to say that everyone's care was not excellent, because it is, but the relationship Christina had with the staff made us feel like this was our family member, too. Teresa was always in good spirits, and truth be told, after a day of providing care for her she made it feel as if she were caring for you and not the other way around. Christina picks up many of Teresa's traits, and having met Teresa and worked with Christina, I am truly blessed to be touched by this family. I know Teresa's passing will leave a tremendous void, but I want you and your family to know she left behind a depth of compassion that would not have been realized by the staff here on 3 West without knowing Teresa.

I just recently met Teresa at Crozet Family Medicine, but immediately was fond of her. She was a kind, gentle, but strong lady who I have no doubt will be lovingly missed. My condolences to the family.

All of your family are in my thoughts and am so sorry for your loss. It has been such a long time since I have seen y'all but thinking way back I can remember many laughs, smiles and good times on a softball field, in school, in college and wedding memories that all have wonderful loving memories and pictures attached, oh and her warm loving smile!

Christina and Jason, it was such an honor and privilege to meet your Mom and to provide spiritual and emotional support to her during her stays on 3W. I so enjoyed being a Chaplain for her. Her smile was a gift to me on those visits and she always welcomed prayer and good conversation. My thoughts and prayers are with you all. I'm sorry I will miss her service! Grace and peace to you all!
