Annie Elizabeth Roper Frazier was born February 7, 1937 in Nashville, Tennessee at Meharry Hubbard Hospital to Jesse and Rachel Carney Roper of Murfreesboro, Tennessee, who both preceded her in death. She transitioned from this earthly life to eternal life on January 5, 2020. She was a lifelong and devoted member of Cherry Grove Missionary Baptist Church where she was on the Decorating Committee, participated in the Women's Ministry, attended Bible class, served as an Usher and the Assistant Financial Officer.

Annie graduated from Holloway High School in Murfreesboro, Tennessee and continued her education at Tennessee State University and graduated with a Culinary Arts degree from Middle Tennessee State University. She had an absolute love for culinary arts and spent the majority of her working career with the Tennessee State Women's Prison where she mentored women to prepare them for their lives after incarceration. She spent over 21 years with the state and was honored upon her retirement in grand style.

Her areas of enjoyment included being a proud member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Incorporated and also a member of the Better Homes & Garden Club, the African American Heritage Society, the NAACP, and the African American Voices, Past and Present of Rutherford County. Through these organizations, Annie served the community and offered her talents to help enrich the lives of others. She was diligent with recording the history of her family and provided historical documents that the family will cherish forever. Her artistic talent was inherited by her legacies and documented through beautiful artwork left to her family. Traveling, gardening and displaying her fashion savvy were among her favorite pastimes.

Annie Elizabeth Frazier is survived by her sons, Dr. Clifton (Dr. Gwendolyn) Frazier, Jr. and Dr. Roderick (Michele) Frazier, Sr.; grandchildren, Erica Frazier, Houston Frazier, Roderick Frazier II and Ivey Frazier; sister, Geraldine Roper Echols; niece, Passion Echols; nephews, William (Katina) Knox and Justin Echols; great nephew, William Knox III and Braxton Oliver; great nieces, Katera Knox and Rachel Knox; close friends; and a whole host of loving cousins from the Roper, Carney, Hunter, Ellis and Frazier Families.
