Passing of Roberta Frazer of Six Mile Red Angus

It is with great personal sadness and equal industry gratitude that we pay respect to an important part of our Canadian Angus fraternity who has been called Home.

We lost one of our true breed pioneers this week: Roberta (Birdie) Frazer of Six Mile Red
Angus passed away last Tuesday morning, February 19th, joining the ‘love of her life’, Ken, to raise the best Red Angus in Heaven. I suspect Birdie is elated to rejoin Ken and work together with other breed stalwarts like Rod Mackenzie in populating God’s acres and paddocks with ‘divine’ Red Angus genetics.

The funeral service will be at 1 p.m. on Saturday, February 23, 2013 at the Hall on Main Street in Fir Mountain, Saskatchewan.

Please join our thoughts and prayers with and for Birdie’s family, Clayton and Corinne Gibson and their children – Callie, Cade and Coy – as well as Birdie’s granddaughter, Sandi Gray and husband Michael, through this transitional period when they will hopefully be able to celebrate a purposeful life, well-lived and served to a ‘greater good’. What would our nation’s Red Angus world look like if not for Ken & Birdie? I cannot even imagine…

It feels as though we had Ken & Birdie for such a brief interlude, and yet their impact and influence on our national Angus family will endure for time everlasting. Thank you, Gibson family, for sharing them with us…

God Called You Home
by Lindsey Zacher
God looked around his garden
And found an empty space;
He then looked down upon this earth
And saw your tired face.
He put His arms around you
And lifted you to rest;
God's garden must be beautiful,
He only takes the best.
He knew you were in pain,
He knew you might never
Get well upon this earth again.
He saw the road was getting rough
And the hills were hard to climb,
so He closed your weary eyelids
and whispered 'Peace be thine.'
It broke our hearts to lose you,
But you never went alone,
For part of us went with you
The day God called you Home
