Freea was born in Mullen Nebraska on 11/13/1937. She devoted her life and all of her love to her family and friends. She was a dedicated member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, to which she offered her time and talents. She would be found on most days sewing quilts for family, friends, and numerous humanitarian projects. She played the piano beautifully and cherished the hymns in her heart. She wore many hats and was considered the family doctor, nurse, psychiatrist, chef, and house- cleaner and had many other skills too large to list. She had a contagious smile and laugh, and one could not help but to laugh along.
Freea will be greatly and deeply missed by all that knew her. Her imprint on this earth was tremendous and will continue for generations. She stood for the truth and righteousness of the Gospel. Her love for family and friends will be a lasting example to all.
