Once in St. Louis, the soprano-voiced Frontiere served on several arts-related boards, kept her hand in music and was involved in numerous charities. Her Rams Foundation has donated more than $5 million to charities in the St. Louis area. She also was among the producers of the August Wilson play "Radio Golf," nominated last year for a Tony Award.
In addition to Weatherwax, Frontiere is survived by her son Dale "Chip" Rosenbloom of Los Angeles, daughter Lucia Rodriguez of Los Angeles, six grandchildren and her brother, Ken Irwin of Palm Springs.
Services are pending. Instead of flowers, her family suggests that donations be made to the Georgia Frontiere Memorial Fund (Fund No. 618210). Checks, payable to the UCLA Foundation, can be sent to UCLA Division of Digestive Diseases, 100 Medical Plaza, Suite 265, Los Angeles, CA 90095. Donations may also be made online at www.giving.ucla.edu/ GeorgiaFrontiereMemorialFund. For assistance, call Patricia Roderick, director of development, at (310) 825-7501.
