A lifelong resident of Giles County, she was born on February 11th, 1942 and was the daughter of the late Peck Caldwell and Frances Shumate Caldwell. She was raised in Glen Lyn, and was a 1960 graduate of Narrows High School where she met her husband.  Judy was a retired employee of Riverview Nursing Home in Rich Creek with 29 years of service.  If one thing is known about Judy, it is that she knew how to cook. She enjoyed quilting, a good cup of hot tea, and Christmas, but thoroughly enjoyed cheering on her children and grandchildren as a Narrows Green Wave and Christiansburg Blue Demon fan.  She was a longtime member of First Baptist Church of Rich Creek, and served with the American Legion Post #68 Ladies Auxiliary, where she would work bingo games and help with local events. She is survived by her husband of 53 years, Douglas M. Frazier; a son, Stephen Frazier of Christiansburg; a daughter, Laura Wills and husband Paul of Christiansburg.  She has four grandchildren, Kandice Whittaker and husband Mac of Narrows, Stephen Wills, Seth Wills, and Spencer Frazier, all of Christiansburg. She is also survived by two brothers, Jimmy Caldwell and wife Linda of Etowah, Tennessee, Danny Caldwell of Christiansburg, a sister, Ellie O’Conner of Bloomington, Indiana; several nieces, nephews, cousins, and many special friends. Her husband Doug, children Laura and Steve, along with her friends and family were there for her throughout her illness, along with the caregivers at Heritage Hall, English Meadows, and Good Samaritan Hospice.
