Our sympathy and prayers for the family, from residents at Churchill Manor- the ladies that shared a table in the dining room, and the people who played whist and bingo, which Frieda enjoyed and at which she was skilled and lucky.
We will miss her.

I have such fond memories of Aunt Frieda.She was a kind, compassionate person who really wanted to know more about how you were doing. I will remember her genuine and warm smile and her open-hearted spirit.

Unfortunately, I am in British Columbia and won’t be able to attend the funeral. Condolences to my cousins Jennifer, Morley, Glenn and Kenneth and all of the extended family
