She worked as a stay-at-home mom. However, because of her great love for people and her caring nature, she decided to go to nursing school at the age of forty-eight. At the age of fifty-one, she graduated and worked as a LPN at the Memorial Hospital in North Little Rock. She worked there for fourteen years and retired in 1999. She was a great favorite with her colleagues and patients because of her cheerful and attentive service to both the sick and their families.
Freddie had a quick wit. She loved to laugh and make people laugh. She enjoyed gardening, tending her yard and feeding her birds and squirrels. However, what defined her the most was her grateful spirit and her generosity with her time and resources to others. She had great faith and prayed fervently. She was a member of North Hills Baptist Church in North Little Rock and she loved her church family dearly.
There will be a private family service sometime in the future. If desired, gifts may be given in her memory to Arkansas Hospice.
