Eileen Nora (Collins) Frazer, age 76, passed away unexpectedly but peacefully at her home in Kenosha, WI, on Sunday, February 14, 2021.
Born in Toledo on December 23, 1944, Eileen was the daughter of the late Maurice and Katie (Waters) Collins. Eileen was educated at St. Ann’s parish grade school and Notre Dame Academy before earning her diploma from Mercy Hospital School of Nursing to be a Registered Nurse.
On September 30, 1972, Eileen was united in marriage to Thomas K. Frazer at Our Lady, Queen of the Most Holy Rosary Cathedral. They relocated to Kenosha in 2007 to enjoy time with their grandchildren.
Eileen was a passionate Registered Nurse devoting many years to Mercy Hospital. She also worked at St. Charles Hospital, where she retired in 2007. Early in her career, she spent three years working at Mass General in Boston.
Throughout her life, Eileen valued her faith and was grateful for her blessings. She enjoyed reading – always an avid patron of the local library, traveling – especially to visit family in Ireland, Wales, and England, watching sports, spending time outdoors, baking Irish Soda Bread and cut-out sugar cookies, and participating in any activity involving Katie and Brody.
She leaves behind many joyful memories for all of us – her love of life, her generous nature, her dreams for her daughter and her love of family near and far, as well as others who loved her. Eileen is survived by her daughter, Eileen Megan Frazer, and loving son-in-law Bret Lokken; her grandchildren, Eileen Kathryn “Katie” and Brody Lokken, and her grand dog, Puck. She is also survived by her siblings, Sr. Peggy Collins, Maury (Penny) Collins, and Sr. Kathy Collins, and her nephews and nieces, Moe and Roxanne Collins, Matt and Freedom Collins, and Sarah and Mike Frost, and their families.
In addition to her parents, Eileen was preceded in death by her husband, Thomas K. Frazer.
