September 11, 1924 - August 20, 2019
Colleen Frazier Foulk lived a long, full life as a daughter, sister, wife, mother, grandmother, and business partner with husband Carl Foulk. She passed away peacefully on Tuesday, August 20, 2019. Colleen was born in Huntington, West Virginia on September 11, 1924, to Nola and James N. Frazier. Her father’s hospitalization from a severe injury during WWI necessitated her mother’s move to Bristol, TN, with Colleen and her brother, Lewis. There Nola joined forces with her twin sister, Nora Thomas, raising their children, forming a strong, loving team that sustained the sisters and the children through the Depression. Early days in Bristol found Colleen roller skating and “borrowing” her brother’s bicycle. Colleen graduated from Bristol Tennessee High School in 1943 and Bristol Business College. After WWII, she worked at Universal Molded Products Corporation where she met Carl. For over 50 years, her business acumen proved valuable as a bookkeeper in her husband’s business, Bristol Auto Sales. Working from home in this role, she devoted lots of love and attention to Gloria, Leigh, and Janet, their daughters. Colleen was active in Windsor Avenue Presbyterian Church in several capacities until her health declined. She is survived by daughters Gloria Oster (Ken), Leigh Scheuer Hull (Pat), and Janet Shannon (Bill); grandchildren Will Scheuer (Jessica) and Stephanie Gillenwater (J.J.); great-grandchildren Quinn, Skylar, and Emilia Scheuer, Whitten Gillenwater. She is also survived by a special niece, Connie Brewis. Her parents, husband Carl, brother Lewis, and two special cousins, Catherine Roberts and John Thomas are deceased. Heartfelt thanks are extended to the NHC Bristol staff and Caris Hospice nurses and staff for their excellent care and support. The family will receive friends from 5:30 – 6:30 P.M., Friday, August 23, 2019, at the funeral home prior to the service.
