Freda was a one of a kind lady! Full of life, fun, stories, a wonderful Christian woman, and caring, protective mother.
She was a beautiful friend to me and my family through many years. Her and Stacy together were such a kick and a lot of good times and teasing remembered. I don't think we will see the likes of her again as she was a special person who doesn't come along very often in our lives. Her family was her heart. She is now home with the Lord and will be waiting for us when we get there.

Wilcox Family - we were so sorry to hear of your loss. Freda was a special person. I worked with her for years at DHS; camped with both of your parents at the same place; and even my folks wintered with them in Florida in the same park. I know she will be greatly missed by all; know that you are all in our thoughts and prayers.

Dear Pam - I am so very sorry for your loss. I just wanted to say, you are without a doubt one of the most dedicated daughters -your willingness to give up so much in order to give your mom what she needed these past couple of years has been a true blessing to witness. The Country Villa staff miss both you and your mom - you had become such a daily fixture we felt lost after you moved your mom to your home. God Bless you and your family! Take some time to take good care of you for a change. We miss your moms mischievous smile she was so full of fun and sweetness!

We have known Freda and Stacy for many years and have had some great times with them...some of those times were at Fryburg Fair and Pierre....LOL...she loved to hear him sing, lots of teasing went on. Lots of other good times, too many to list here. Freda was a wonderful friend and Christian lady. Always loved them AND their families. Our love and prayers to all the family....
