BARBARA LEE FRALIN (NEE MCCLAY) July 29, 1935 February 9, 2021 It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of our mother, grandmother and great grandmother Barbara. Barbara was born in Grosse Pointe, Michigan to parents Beatrice and Alfred McClay. She married Peter Bailey Fralin Jr. in 1957 and had two children, Peter B. Fralin III and Paul Alexander Fralin. Barbara had 4 sisters, Alfreda (Al), Nikki (Paul), Lynne (Ralph), Midge (Fred) and 1 brother, Sunny boy. Sadly, Nikki and Sunny boy have passed. Barbara's son Peter (Lorraine) and have two children, Sara (Fred) and Jacob (Coco) and great grandson Jett. Barbara's son Paul (Candy) and have two children Alex and Tyler. Pete and Barbara met at the roller rink when they were 15 years old and became Michigan State Roller Skating Dance champions. After Pete was drafted into the Army, they hung up their skates and soon married. They moved around the country from Washington, California, Indiana, Arizona and Georgia. They lived in England and loved to travel around the British Isles and France. Upon returning to the US, Pete and Barbara lived for a time in Montana and finally settled in North Las Vegas, Nevada. Always an adventurer Barbara introduced skiing to her husband and children which they enjoyed for years. When Barbara and Pete were in their 50's, they returned back to roller dancing and they made it to the US Nationals and thoroughly enjoyed this journey together winning many awards along the way. Barbara was a beautiful, smart, witty and feisty Irish woman. She always spoke her mind and expressed her opinions with great vigor. Her love of the national news had her captivated and kept her very informed. Barbara fought hard to overcome her illness but Covid-19 took her at the end. We loved Barbara very much and will be miss every day. In lieu of flowers, a donation in Barbara's name can be made to any charity of your choice
