She was a classy, strong-willed and determined person. Frieda was very meticulous and loved mowing and gardening to keep up with her property, as it always looked perfect. She loved to collect dolls and was an avid fan of the Ohio State Buckeyes and a huge fan of the Dallas Cowboys. Frieda made the best sweet tea and was a phenomenal cook.
