Carole Frazier Stivers of Leesburg, Virginia on April 15, 2011.

Born to Bettina and Broadaway Frazier in Dallas, Texas, Carole grew up in the DC area and graduated Class of 1959 from Washington-Lee High School in Arlington, Virginia. She graduated in 1963 with a degree in Political Science from Miami University in Oxford, Ohio. She married Jerry Van Stivers of Cincinnati, Ohio on June 13, 1964.

She is survived by her husband Jerry; three children, David Stivers and wife Melinda Oliver of California, Andrew Stivers and wife Claire Saxton of Maryland, and Meredith Stivers of Massachusetts; brother Scott Frazier of Virginia; sister Meredith Frazier Heintzelman of Texas; and one grandchild, Luke Saxton-Stivers.

Carole was a life-long Christian Scientist and took its study seriously. She worked for the First Church of Christ, Scientist, Boston, Massachusetts, in the Office of the General Counsel, where her daughter Meredith currently works. In 1984, the Stivers family moved to San Antonio, Texas. During her 24 years in Texas, she was a member of the First Church of Christ, Scientist, San Antonio, Texas, where she served as Clerk, First Reader, and Assistant Reading Room Librarian.

Carole was also intellectually curious and an an avid reader. She quickly mastered new technologies, most recently the iPhone. She began learning Spanish a few years after moving to San Antonio and became proficient while completing an eight-level course at the Universidad Nacional Autonóma de México.

In 2008, she and Jerry moved back to Northern Virginia.
