    We were so sad to hear of Freda’s passing. She was absolutely one of our favourite people! We will remember always, those many evenings, years ago, laughing around campfires or playing cards in the camper. Know that you are in our thoughts and prayers through this difficult time.

    Our prayers and thoughts are with you Maureen and your family in the loss of your Mother and Grandmother and Great Grandmother Freda. Freda was a fun person to be with. One thing we will always remember she loved to play cards but she liked to make her own rules of the game and that drove Frank crazy and the war was on LOL. Freda loved to camp and we had a lot of fun with her if she had something to tell you she did not like she told you there was no beating around the bush. We will really miss you Freda RIP
