Leola J. Frost

Leola J. Frost was born on December 25, 1943 in Auburn, California. She attended High school in Marysville, California. Her second parents, Doc and Edda Taylor, of Waters Septic Service, brought her to Tahoe in the early 1950s for summer vacations.

Leola married Dick Jennings in 1963 and gave birth to her first daughter, Serena M. Jennings. She remarried in the early 1970s and moved to Tahoe. Lee then worked for the new owner of Waters Septic Service. She gave birth to her second daughter, Larralee Dehart, in 1974. Lee separated from her husband in 1975. Larra went to Oklahoma with her father, but returned to Tahoe at age 14 and stayed for 8 years.

While working at the “Tahoma Frosty“ in 1976, she met the love of her life. She married Robert “Frosty” Frost in 1977. No one at the Gold Spike, which Frosty owned, or in the small town of Tahoma thought their relationship would last…but they were married until her passing.

She later worked at the Tahoma PDQ Market, bought the Family Burger, and worked at both the Tahoe City Pharmacy and Geared for Games. She was the mentor and mother to all the children of Tahoma as well as immigrant kids from New York. She was the first social chairman of Tahoma, and was present as Mrs. Claus every year at the Tahoma Christmas galas.She had more than her share of climatic events: Lee lived through two major car accidents, three bouts with cancer, broke her foot in accidents twice, had one hip replacement, one dislocated shoulder and a hyatal hernia operation. She was always a tough woman who smiled throughout her hardships, and was an example to all those who grew up with her as a surrogate mother & grandmother. She passed on the 8th of August, 2016 at the age of 72. Leaving behind her Husband Frosty, Daughters and Grandchildren, Sarina and 4 children & Larralee and 2 children. Brother David, Sister Mariann and 2 Nieces, 2 Nephews.
