Heather Fraga

December 24, 1977 - May 13, 2017

Heather Noelle McKain Fraga, 39, passed away May 13, 2017.  She was born December 24, 1977 to Larry Glen McKain and Dana Jo Slama Jones in Ogden, UT.

Heather graduated from Washington High School.  She married Zach Fraga and together they had a beautiful son, Cade.  They were later divorced.

Heather didn’t know it, but she was a shining star who could light up any room.  Her son, Cade, was the light of her life and her world revolved around him.  He was her greatest accomplishment.  She loved the outdoors, hiking, fishing, riding ATV’s and camping.  Her hobbies were shopping, shopping and shopping.  She worked at Bonneville Collection for approximately 16 years.  She loved her family and friends.  Her life consisted of more ups and downs than any one person deserves and she always managed to overcome them.

Heather, we love you and you will be missed dearly by more people than you could have imagined.  We hope you’ve found peace with the angels.

The family would like to thank everyone who loved and helped Heather and made an impact in her life.  She was truly blessed to have so many people who loved and cared about her.

Heather is survived by her son, Cade Fraga; parents, Larry McKain and Dana Jones; grandmother, Ruth McKain; step parents, Jeff and LeAnn Jones and LaDonna McKain; brother and sister, Jayson and Trina Quintana Jones and Corey and Tiffany Jones Standing; step brother and sister, Adam and Cami McKian Benincosa and Trent McKain; grandparents, Dan and Udene Slama; and many aunts, uncles, nephews and nieces.

Heather is preceded in death by her grandfather, Clarke McKain; step grandparents, Don and Lois Jones and George and Gladys Bunch.

I am so very sorry for your loss. It sounds like Heather was a very strong woman and I'm sure she left many wonderful memories for you to look back on. May these memories and the hope of a future resurrection bring you comfort and hope as you begin to heal. (Acts 24:15; Revelation 21:4) My deepest condolences to Heather's family and friends.

Heather was such a beautiful woman! She always had a smile, and her laughter was so contagious. She helped me through a lot of my own sadness. Heather was always there when anyone ever needed to talk or a just a hug, smile, or her kind words. I will miss you my beautiful friend. I love you.

Heather you have been one of my closest friends for almost 8yrs now. We have helped each other through so much. We have shared so many good times together and a few bad. But you always brought light to your darkness and joy to anyone that was down. I'm a better person today because of you and showing me strength I forgot I had. I love you and miss you so much my sweet friend.

Heather truly had a "gift". She was like a magnet, drawing people close and lightened up every room! She was care free and didn't care what people thought about her, giving her more freedom- I honestly looked up to my cousin very much in many ways and I hope I expressed them enough to her while she was here. I will see you again cuz-on the other side with open arms!!! I will miss you dearly!!! My life is for ever changed. I love you dearly my friend!!!

Heather was one of my closest friends in Jr. High. We shared so many good times. I'll never forget her or our time together. Her smile was so big and beautiful. Her laugh was contagious. She was a special person to me. May she Rest In Peace and love. I'm so sad youre gone Heather. The world is a little less brighter without you in it. Wish I could be there to send you off. Sending my love to all that were close to her.
