Mary Bess Fraley, 75, went to be with the Lord on Monday, November 18, 2019.
Mary Bess was born in Paris, Kentucky on August 22, 1944 to the late Orville E. and Mary Louise Mullikin Setters. A picture-perfect military wife, mother, and homemaker, Mary Bess indulged in decorating, crafts, quilting, cooking, bowling, painting, and cheering on the University of Kentucky Wildcats basketball team. She also had a soft spot for giraffes; her house was home to about 600 of them. An added benefit to being a military wife was the enjoyment of traveling and seeing the world. Christ United Methodist was her church home.
She is survived by her loving husband of 55 years, James Sherman Fraley of Warner Robins; children, James Edward “JEF” Fraley (Lara Relyea) of Macon and JoAnna Fraley Dorris of Warner Robins; grandchildren, Joey Dorris, Rebecca Dorris, Thomas Dorris, Jake Fraley, and Henry Fraley; siblings, Charles Setters of Hodgenville, Kentucky and Anna Setters Randall (Stephen) of Bonaire; and several nieces and nephews.
