Lutricia "Frize" Payton

North Little Rock, AR, 1951 - 2022

Lutricia "Frize" Payton went to be with her Heavenly Father on July 6, 2022 after battling to recover from a hernia removal surgery. Frize was born on October 29, 1951 in Frederick, Maryland, where she grew up. She moved to central Arkansas in the mid 1970's where she resided for the last forty plus years.
Frize spent many years as a homemaker, raising her two kids, who later brought her four grandchildren and two great grandchildren. Her family was her whole world and she dedicated so much of herself to caring for, spending time with, and selflessly loving each beloved member. She also spent many of her later years working for Pathfinder, Inc. where she retired from in October of 2021. She helped lead women and men with various developmental disabilities and other needs during her time there. She truly loved these individuals and it was evident they all held a very special place in her heart.
Frize was a dedicated member of First Assembly of God in North Little Rock, where she built many special relationships. She enjoyed volunteering at the church, especially as a greeter. She loved people and loved the Lord. Her sweet laugh, caring heart, and shining personality will be greatly missed by all of those who had the pleasure of knowing her.
Frize was preceded in death by her father, Robert Preston Geisler Sr., her mother, Bertha "June" Geisler, and sister, Edna Murray. She is survived by her daughter, Tracy (Andy) Smith, and son, Robbie Moser. Grandchildren: Jesse (Sarah) Smith, Jacob Smith, Jeremiah Smith, and Abigail Moser. Great grandchildren: Josie Smith and John Smith. Lifelong friends: Mindy Frye, Christina (David) Wetzel, and Tammy Kefauver; dear friend, Pam France; and a host of many other dear friends.
A visitation will be held on July 14, 2022 at 12:30pm with a memorial service following at 1:30pm in the chapel of First Assembly of God, 4501 Burrow Dr. in North Little Rock. Please visit for the online guestbook.
