She appreciated even the small things people would do for her. She always made everyone feel welcome, offering Graeter's ice cream for any occasion. She helped her husband, Joe, found FibreGlass Evercoat Co. in 1953. She worked as the credit manager and was a strong stabilizing influence. Her passion was her family. She loved being with them any chance she could get. Freddie would organize the food at the cottage every weekend so there was always plenty to eat no matter how many came. Freddie enriched the family through her sense of fun! She was a Girl Scout leader while the girls were growing up. Beginning in the 1980's, they became snowbirds, inviting the family to visit in Key West. They also took the grandchildren on trips to NY and Israel. Granny was an icon as a grandparent to her grandchildren and great grandchildren. When we gathered as a family, she would marvel at what she and Joe had created. Freddie would beam when she looked at the four generations gathered together. The funeral service will be at Weil Funeral Home, 8350 Cornell Rd. on Monday, August 11, at 11:00AM. Shiva will be observed on Monday, August 11 at the home of Judy and Jay Avner beginning at 7:00PM. Donations may be made to Hospice of Cincinnati in Mrs. Linder's memory. Weilfuneralhome.com
