Cheryl Frazier  Lyon

Cheryl Frazier Lyon, age 75, passed away peacefully at St. Dominic Hospital in Jackson, Mississippi, in the early morning hours of Saturday, February 17, 2024.

She was born on July 10th, 1948, in Jackson to Robert Carlton Frazier and Evelyn Felts Frazier. She was raised in Clinton, MS, and graduated from Clinton High School in 1966. She then attended what is now known as the University of Memphis. In 1979, she married George Davis Lyon Jr. MD, and they began their life together in the Jackson Metro area. With three children in tow, the family moved to Starkville, MS in 1990 where she lived for the next 30 years. Besides being a second mother to many of her children’s friends, she was a fixture at her children’s horse shows, basketball games, golf tournaments, and any other activity that involved her children.

Cheryl served as President of the Junior Auxiliary of Starkville and became a Life Member. One of her proudest accomplishments as President was the publication of the first edition of Bully’s Best Bites Cookbook.
Cheryl was adept at cultivating long-lasting friendships. She truly treasured her many close relationships and always enjoyed plans to dine and shop with her lady friends. Having married a Mississippi State graduate and being the proud mother to 3 MSU graduates, she was always proud to wear maroon and white as well as ring those cowbells!

Following the death of her husband, she moved to Madison, MS in 2020 to be closer to her daughter and family. Cheryl’s ability to cultivate friendships continued after her move. She was invited to join the Recess Luncheon Club in Jackson, MS which broadened her circle of friends.
She was predeceased by her husband, her parents, and her brother Phillip Frazier.
Cheryl leaves behind a legacy of love and laughter. She is survived by her children, David Manning Lyon (Brooke), Anna Lyon Killingsworth (Ryan) and George Maxwell Lyon (Cameron) and her beloved grandchildren Kate Killingsworth, Davis and Grant Lyon, and Ivy Lyon. She is also survived by her brother Eric Frazier, her aunt Dorothy Shanks, her sisters in law Catherine Lyon Chernecky and Janice Virden, her nieces Bethany and AJ Frazier, and many loving cousins.

The visitation will be held at Welch Funeral Home in Starkville on Wednesday, February 21, 2024 from 10:00-12:00, followed by a graveside service at Odd Fellows Cemetery in Starkville.
The family would like to thank the caregivers from HomeWell Care Services of Madison who helped tremendously over the final few weeks.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations to Cheryl’s favorite charity, Oktibbeha County Humane Society.
