Mrs. Mertice Lorraine Frost, age 76 of St. Marys, passed away on the morning of Tuesday, February 25, 2020 in Jacksonville, surrounded by her beloved family.
Mrs. Frost was born on March 16, 1943 in Folkston to the late James Wade and Mertice Petty.
Lorraine was a loving wife, mother, nana, sister, and friend to all whom she encountered. She had a smile that would light up the room and to know her was to love her. You never saw Lorraine without a homemade dessert, a warm smile, or telling you a story about her grandkids and great- grandkids. Her love for cooking, gardening, and family will be carried on for generations to come.
Mrs. Frost is survived by her beloved husband of over 50 years, Joseph Frost, of St. Marys; her children, Lynn (Don) Lewis, of Woodbine and Chris (Tonia) Frost, of Eastman; her sisters, Mary Catherine Strickland and Shirley (James Roy) Hall, all of St. Marys; her brothers, James Wade (Lisa) Petty, Jr. and Larry Petty, all of St. Marys; her brother-in-law Glenn Walker, of St. Marys; her grandchildren, Taylor (Tyler) Mobbs, of St. Marys, Justin (Macy) Frost, of Gray, GA, and Jarred Frost, of Eastman; and her great-grandchildren, Ella Catherine Mobbs and Emory Grace Mobbs; her very close family friend, Marrisia Bowen, of St. Marys; and her numerous nieces, nephews, and cousins.
Besides her parents, Mrs. Frost also joins her sister, Louise Walker; her sister-in-law, Connie Petty, and her brother-in-law, David Strickland in Heaven.
