Amelia Trevino Frazier, 66, of Benton passed away Wednesday, Oct. 26, at Saline Memorial Hospital.Â She was born June 8, 1945, in Pearsall, Texas, to Fortunado Trevino and Teodora Cortez.
Amelia retired from Unilever Bestfoods in Little Rock after 20 years of service.Â She also served with the U.S. Army Dental Corps during the Vietnam War era. She spent most of her time giving to others and volunteering and had an unconditional love for animals.Â In 2010, she was featured in the Arkansas Democrat Gazette for donating critical lifesaving equipmentÂ to the Benton Fire Department.
On a cold, rainy Thursday night that featured little action at C.W. Lewis Stadium, the Benton Panthers freshmen squad pulled out a 6-0 overtime victory against visiting Cabot South.
The first half of the game was relatively uneventful, featuring stalled offenses and missed opportunities. Benton quarterback Nick Quinn gave up an interception at the top of the second quarter, leaving Cabot with the ball on its own 44-yard line. That turnover resulted in no score for Cabot.
