Grace E. Frazier Courts, Friend

Grace E. Frazier Courts, December 22, 2013, in Portland. Grace was raised in Detroit and Kalamazoo, Michigan, and learned to be a stenographer after graduating from high school. Her parents were friends with the parents of Prof. Frederick A. Courts [psychology 1945–69]. Grace and Fred met in childhood and married in 1936. They lived in California and Missouri as Fred completed his education and began his teaching career. Grace was a wonderful homemaker and mother, “the best cook, friend, and counsel to all of her family.” She volunteered with the Red Cross, the Sierra Club, and the Democratic League of Women Voters. She opened her home to faculty and students of Reed and made many friends in the Reed community. Survivors include two daughters and sons; two grandchildren; and four great-grandchildren. Fred died in 1969.
