ALLENSTOWN - Nora J. Fredyma, 60, a longtime resident of both Allenstown and Epsom, died Wednesday, July 17, 2013, at Presidential Oaks in Concord.
Born July 14, 1953, in Manchester, Nora was the daughter of Walter and Lorraine (Emond) Fredyma. They devoted themselves to Nora's care and well-being for years and enrolled her in Miss Jacques School when she was six.
Nora was an avid fan of anything to do with the Wizard of Oz. She liked swimming and dancing, and playing badminton and cards. She looked forward to her daily soap operas and excitedly anticipated her two favorite holidays every year - Christmas and her birthday. She loved being with people, meeting new people, and just living life to its fullest.
Nora was predeceased by her father Walter in 1997; and her brother Peter in 2005.
She is survived by her mother, Lorraine of Allenstown; her brother, Daniel Fredyma and his wife, Karen, of Center Barnstead; nephews, Daniel Fredyma and his wife, Heather, of Epsom, Joshua Fredyma and his wife, Dia, of Ashuelot, Peter Fredyma II and Travis Fredyma, both of Springfield, Vt.; her ex-sister-in-law, Sheila Fredyma of Springfield, Vt.; and aunts, uncles, and cousins.
A Memorial Mass will be celebrated Saturday, July 27, at 1 p.m. at St. John the Baptist Church in Allenstown. Burial will be in the Old St. John the Baptist Cemetery, followed by a reception in St. John the Baptist Parish Hall.
Nora's family wish to express a sincere thank you to the staff on the 2nd floor of Presidential Oaks for the dedicated care and attention they showed Nora.
