She retired from teaching and moved to Marlton where she lived and worked at Wiley Mission. Freda retired as the Supervisor of Housekeeping.
She spent many years happily caring for her parents and many others in the Wiley community. People were drawn to Freda because she had a peace about her which she would attribute to her relationship with Jesus. His Holy Spirit made Freda a comfort to those around her. She loved to write, published books and had a gift for poetry. Freda spent many years involved in the Prayer Ministry of the World Gospel Mission. She was a prayer warrior for anyone who needed it. Second only to her faith, was her love for her parents and family. She is lovingly survived by many cousins, the Gilmore Family and her beloved family at the Wiley Mission. She will be dearly missed until the day we are reunited in Heaven.
