Twila M. Fraizer

January 08, 1951 ‒ May 20, 2020

Galion, Ohio

Twila M. Fraizer, 69, of Galion passed away Wednesday, May 20, 2020 peacefully at home surrounded by her family.

She was born January 8, 1951 in Galion and was the daughter of the late James and Florence (Best) Lauthers. Twila is survived by her husband of 50 years, John R. Fraizer, whom she married on January 31, 1970.

Twila was raised on a dairy farm and graduated from Galion High School in 1969. She worked as an Aide at Galion Hospital for three years, where she made $1.85/hour before becoming a homemaker.

Twila’s passion was everything about the family’s farm. She enjoyed watching her grandchildren, who would be the seventh generation, play together around the farm. Twila was an avid gardener and had a love of animals. As part of being on the farm, she had a passion for apples and would read to improve her knowledge of them. In addition, she planted 14 apple trees in their yard and would gather her apples every year and press them into cider, sometimes yielding over 60 gallons. Twila would then deliver the cider to family, friends and neighbors. She would treat all the sheep, chickens, cows and pigs like they were family. Twila would go so far as to nurture an orphan baby lamb as if it was a newborn child. On a cold winters night it was nothing out of the ordinary for her to have baby lambs in a large box in the kitchen.

In addition to her husband, she is survived by sons Brad (Amanda) Fraizer of Galion, Jamey Fraizer of Galion, Jeff (Ayesha) Fraizer of Bucyrus and Jake (Dawn) Fraizer of Crestline; 10 grandchildren; two sisters, Linda (Steve) Fraizer of Galion and Leila Lohr of Lexington and two special pets, her Dexter cows.

A private graveside service will be held for the family in Iberia Cemetery. A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date at the Family Farm.

Twila appreciated the several cards and special visit from the members of the Blooming Grove United Methodist Church and it is her wish that memorial contributions may be made to the Blooming Grove United Methodist Church or the Leukemia Foundation in care of the funeral home.

Richardson Davis Chapel of Snyder Funeral Homes in Galion is honored to serve the family of Twila Fraizer, and condolences may be made to them at

  • So very sorry to hear about Twila’s passing. We were neighbors growing up. Rode the same bus to Renschville. Her parents knew my parents. It was a different time back in those days. Swam in the creek beside their house many times. She was a very caring person. Gentle spirit. Will certainly be missed. Prayers for the family.

  • The day we met Twila and every time we encountered her thereafter, she was extending a kindness and taking care of us or someone we loved. We are grateful recipients of her perfect apple cider and her dandelion jelly, given for a 50th birthday because it was golden. It was gold, indeed. John, Jake & Dawn, and all of Twila’s family, you have been in our prayers and will continue to be. We love you and we thank you for sharing Twila with us and with Rocky. He was, no doubt, holding the gate open for her when she entered Heaven. God bless you all!

  • Words cannot express my sorrow at the news of your great loss. Twila was such a sweet lady . We shared many fun conversations at the annual Fraizer Halloween parties. My sincere sympathy to the entire Fraizer family. My prayers are with you. God`s Blessings, Alice Mooney

  • Sincere sympathy to Twila’s family. Her parents and family lived next to us growing up on Iberia Road. Memories of her and her sisters include when they took piano lessons from my mom which was so very long ago. Prayers with her loved ones.
