Mary Bess  Fraley
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.
Visitation will take place on Friday, November 22, 2019 from 6 until 8 p.m. at Roberson Funeral Home in South Shore, Kentucky. A funeral service will be held at 11 a.m. at Roberson Funeral Home on Saturday, November 23, 2019. Mary Bess will be laid to rest in Kentucky Veterans Cemetery Northeast in a private ceremony on Monday, November 25, 2019.
