She was likewise called by God to take her eternal rest on Monday, August 8, 2022 also from Fort Smith. She also was preceded death by one of her sisters: Debbie Enoch.
Freda accepted Jesus as her personal Savior and was baptized at an early age at Mallalieu Methodist Episcopal Church. Later in life, she chose to be baptized at New Life Church of God in Christ. Her education started in Hawaii and Colorado. She finished her education in the Fort Smith Public School System: Howard Elementary, Kimmons Junior High, and Northside High schools. She graduated with the Class of 1986. She worked at Hardees, Tyson, and for 26 years at Rheem Manufacturing, Inc. Much later in life, she became a member of New Covenant International Christian Center; she truly loved the LORD and her church family. She was a Sunday School Teacher, Usher/Door Greeter and a true worshipper.
Freda enjoyed her family. She was a sweet, loving, kind-hearted, mild-mannered who would give the shirt off her back. She would always try to find “the good” in everyone. Her favorite quote was “I love all my cousins”. She also enjoyed travelling and shopping with her sisters at the thrift stores (she was a thrift store queen). She will be truly missed by all who had the opportunity of knowing her in life.
