Juliette Marie Frazier | 1966 - 2020


Juliette Marie Frazier

August 16, 1966 - November 9, 2020


Juliette Frazier was my mother and the brightest light in my world. If I had known I would lose her so early in my life, I would have found a way to spend every day with her. Her love, guiding influence, joyful example and confidence in me were just a few of her precious contributions.


My mother was a remarkable friend to those with whom she worked, to our neighbors and to the many folks she met through her prodigious socializing. Juliette loved to dance, enjoyed long hikes into the hills, savored an overpriced coffee on Sunday mornings and liked to spend evenings cracking up at dating profiles with her friend Diana. Those evenings typically involved more than a little sauvignon blanc and the two of them would go through a box of tissues from laughing so hard.


And my mother had many exceptional talents which she successfully applied toward providing for our household. Juliette was a great commercial artist, produced highly regarded fine art pieces and was adept at designing and organizing commercial retail spaces. In addition, she was a skilled businesswoman, doing all of her own sales and marketing. She set a high bar for all who worked for her and enjoyed running her business in a manner she felt met her standards. Many businesses in Boise benefitted from her artful signage, beautifully laid out retail spaces and branded art montages.


Juliette approached her job as my mother with conviction. For the majority of my childhood, ours was a household of two and my mother played the role of mother, father, auntie and grandparent since most on our small family tree were deceased or living in Canada. I did not suffer for this, as my mother surrounded me with fabulous friends who acted as extended family. She also saw to my enjoying the benefits of years of dance lessons, art camps, vacations to Mexico and girls’ days out visiting thrift stores and finding great noodle shops.

I miss my mother dearly and know that many others of you do, as well. I hope that together, we can keep her memory alive.

Juliette was one of the most gifted people with whom I had the opportunity to work. She will be greatly missed by all of her colleagues.
