Chris, Emily, and Kelly Fraser
On Monday November 29, 2021, a tragic house fire claimed the lives of Chris and Emily Fraser and their youngest daughter, Kelly.
Left behind to mourn are their eldest children; Jessica (Michael) and Jim (Cassidy), Chris’ sister Lorri as well as many other family and friends. This is a loss felt community wide. Chris and Emily were very involved in helping and working in many communities in the district, Kelly was a 7th grade student at Sundridge Centennial Public School.
Emily was a joyous soul with a heart of gold. She was passionate about her family, loved baking, wind chimes and gnomes.
Chris was an amazing man; he would generously give the shirt off his back to help anyone. For him family and friends were everything and came first. His passions were family, friends, his 50 chickens and the simple things in life like his tractor and his beloved Ford Ranger truck.
Emily and Chris were devoted to one another and their children; they were so very proud of them and excited to welcome their first grandchild in 2022.
Kelly, their youngest child, also lost her life in the fire. She devoured Harry Potter books, loved doing TikTok dances with anyone who would participate and was always excited to ride her four-wheeler. She was a vibrant girl with a joy for life
Chris, Emily, and Kelly have touched so many lives and will never be forgotten.
