Freddie was born in Shelby County. After graduating from high school in Talladega, she was employed in Attalla as a hair stylist. It is in the salon that she met Garnet - he had come to pick up his mother in his red convertible! She experienced life to its fullest. She especially enjoyed all family gatherings, trips with Garnet through the United States, Auburn football, and her wonderful, lifelong friends at the First Baptist Church of Attalla and her new friends at Regency Pointe.
Grandsons and grandsons-in-law will serve as pallbearers.
Honorary pallbearers will be her Sunday School class.
In lieu of flowers, memorials may be given to the First Baptist Church of Attalla.
