Mother of Fiery Naval Commander Dies Thursday
Mrs. Liza Jane Walker Frost of Habberton, who died at City hospital Thursday after an illness of more than two years, was the mother of Cmdr. Laurence Hugh Frost, USN, who in September, 1941, in command of the U.S. Destroyer Greer, fired on a submarine which attacked the destroyer near Reykjavik, Iceland the first shot fired by an American ship since the beginning of World War II. The incident attracted international attention and the action of Frost, then a Lieutenant-commander, was tacitly approved by President Roosevelt. Mrs. Frost is also survived by three other sons, Claude and Rogers of Vinita, Okla., and Ivan of Huntington Beach, Calif.; a daughter, Mrs. Sue English of Los Angeles; and one brother, Lee Walker of Fresno, Calif. Her husband, James Benjamin Frost died in 1912. Mrs. Frost was born in Stockton, Mo., and settled near Goshen in 1866. She had spent practically all her life in this locality.
Funeral services will be conducted Saturday at 2 p.m. at the Goshen church by Rev. Glenn Parks(?), pastor of the Fayetteville Church of Christ. Burial will be in Goshen cemetery. The Watson Mortuary is in charge of arrangements.
