Pauline Frazier Starr, 90, of Hagerstown, passed away on March 3rd, 2021 as a result of cancer. Pauline was born on July 28, 1930 in Indiana, the sixth of seven children born to Chris and Hazel Marie Frazier. After graduating from Star City High School in 1949 she moved to Washington, D.C. where she worked for the FBI for more than 10 years. Pauline was an avid reader of mysteries and westerns who owned nearly 1,000 books. She was a talented and prodigious seamstress who created memory quilts, colorful wall hangings, and wallets, and crocheted sweaters, afghans, and hats. She was also an energetic and vocal college basketball fan who never missed the NCAA basketball tournament. She had a unique sense of humor and was happy to share her opinions about many things, including most recently her disdain for the poor performance of the US postal service under its current leadership. Her husband, Myron Maffin Starr, and her son, William Montgomery Starr, preceded her in death. She is survived by her daughters, Mary Starr Schwarz and Adelle Marie Starr, and their husbands Kai Schwarz and Alan Fornek. She is also survived by granddaughter Jasmine Moore and husband Tom Moore, and four grandsons, Forrest Reed, Austin Reed, Alexander Erdman and Jeremy Erdman. Services will be held via zoom on April 10th. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the American Cancer Society. Arrangements were made by J.L.
