We wish to extend our sympathy to Freda's Family. She was a wonderful friend and neighbour for many years. We enjoyed many happy times with Freda and John at home and on vacation. Her door was always open and you were always greeted with a smile. She was delightful and we will miss her.

You will enjoy fond memories of a dedicated mother, grandmother and great grandmother.
