Obituary for Emma Watkins Fralix Trevena

April 17, 1924 - December 25, 2018
Bulverde, Texas | Age 94


Emma Watkins Fralix Trevena was born on April 17, 1924, and grew up on a red dirt farm in Philadelphia, Mississippi. Raised by parents with strict work ethics, she was responsible for her share of school work, housework, and farm work, including picking cotton. She always said the only day on which her father tolerated leisure was the Fourth of July!

In high school she loved competing in half-court basketball. As a young woman, she loved music and dancing the jitterbug. She forever loved beautiful clothes and jewelry.

Emma often claimed she had no talent, but anyone who has ever eaten her fried catfish, chicken and dumplings, homemade biscuits with gravy, enchiladas, chocolate cream pie, or a hundred other specialties of hers, knows precisely what her talent was!

She first traveled to San Antonio to visit an aunt after her high school graduation, then made it her home for nearly eighty years while she and Mike, her husband of 51 years, traveled the world together. She was always full of attitude and an inborn sense of style and elegance.

Emma passed away on Christmas Day 2018 at the age of 94. She is survived by daughter, Wylene Kay Weiss of Sanford, Florida; daughter, Alane Fralix Gandy of Hackett, Arkansas; son, Charles Edward Fralix, Jr., of Stratham, New Hampshire; and sister, Naomi Bostick of Philadelphia, Mississippi.

A Viewing was held on January 2, 2019 at Porter Loring Mortuary North in San Antonio, followed by a church memorial on January 3, 2019 at the Little Rock Chapel in Bulverde, and interment with her husband on January 7, 2019 at Fort Sam Houston National Cemetery.

Emma is much loved and will be missed!

"The Lord therefore be judge, and judge between me and thee,
and see, and plead my cause, and deliver me out of thine hand." 1 Samuel 24:15
