The family of Deborah Fraser was finally able to find closure after the star was buried on Tuesday following unexpected weather delays.
The renowned gospel star was laid to rest in KwaZulu-Natal, three days after her funeral on Saturday. The burial process was halted after the heavy rainfall flooded the singer’s gravesite.
On Tuesday, Deborah Fraser was buried in the Lala Kahle Cemetery in Botha’s Hill in the KwaZulu-Natal Midlands.
The small private ceremony was attended by family members and few friends including musicians Tzozo Zulu and DJ Sox.
Fraser’s body was buried in a white casket, with funeral-goers releasing white doves into the air in her honour. The funeral procession was undertaken by Bishop Vusi Dube.
“We thank God that the day for them to finally bury their loved one has finally come. They will be able to move on with their lives,” said Bishop Dube.
Last Saturday, Frasers funeral service took place at the Station Hill hall in Durban. However, her body had to be returned to the morgue after organisers discovered her gravesite had flooded. This, after heavy rainfall in KZN over the weekend wreaked havoc across the province.
Musicians and fans remembered Deborah Fraser in a memorial service held at the House of Treasures Ministries in Rispark, Johannesburg, last week Thursday.
The singer passed away on May 15 at the Chris Hani Bragwanath Hospital in Soweto, following a short illness.
