Sharon Frazier Lowe

July 18, 1960 - July 9, 2022

Sharon passed away peacefully during the early morning hours of July 9.  Her courage and bravery over the last 6-1/2 years battling cancer are a testament to her character and the way in which she approached life.  It cannot, and will not, be said that she lost her battle with cancer.  Quite the contrary, the cancer is now dead and Sharon’s spirit lives on stronger than ever.

Born July 18, 1960, to James and Agnes Frazier, Sharon grew up in Archdale, NC with her two older siblings Rick Frazier and Donna Frazier Kennon, and younger brother Jeff Frazier.  She attended Trinity High School where she graduated with the Class of 1979.

Following her true calling, Sharon entered the Cosmetology program at Leon’s Beauty School in Greensboro, NC.  During her 35+ year career in cosmetology, Sharon owned, operated, and managed numerous salons in North Carolina and Mississippi.  She absolutely cherished the relationships she developed with her customers while helping them look and feel their best.

Despite her many accomplishments, Sharon wouldn’t hesitate if asked of what she is most proud; her children.  She gave birth to and raised her daughter, Kelli Martin Dildine, and her son, Heath Kimber-Martin.  She also played a fundamental role in raising her stepson, Jacob Lowe, whom she claimed as her own.  Her love and affection for each is immeasurable and stands as a true example of unconditional love.

In 2005, Sharon met her best friend and true love, Jim Lowe.  Throughout their relationship, and subsequent marriage, Sharon and Jim enjoyed travel, dining out, gathering with family and friends, and making a home together.  Notably, they simply enjoyed each other’s company and were content just being with one another.  Together they found and experienced true, unconditional love and its unending nature.

A fierce defender of the fragile and underprivileged, Sharon had absolutely no tolerance for cruelty towards animals.  She was an advocate for pet rescue, adoption, and no-kill shelters.  She and her rescue dog, Fievel, maintain a bond of loyalty and dedication without end.

Sharon is survived by her husband, mother, children, siblings, numerous aunts, uncles, and cousins, and Fievel.  She was joyously reunited with her beloved father Jimmy upon her passing.

A celebration of Sharon’s life will be held at a later date.  In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to Angels of Assisi, 415 Campbell Avenue SW, Roanoke, VA 24016 – (540) 344-8707.

Jim, last Saturday you lost your precious wife, this family lost a caring, loving, person who was always there for us in one way or another. May I commend you and Sharon’s son Heath for constantly being with Sharon, caring, tending and loving this very special person for the past two weeks constantly. She knew you were there, by her to her last breath. To you Jim, let me say how proud I am of you for the care and seeking of medical care you gave your wife for 6 1/2 years. May the Lord now guide you and grant you peace of mind. Love, Mom
