Spagnola, Frieda Dorothia Merkel  
Frieda Dorothia Merkel Spagnola was born on August 30, 1922, in the midst of the harvest season in Eureka, South Dakota to Magdalena Joachim and William Merkel. Because of difficulties with phones and transportation, her mother waited for a day for a doctor to arrive to deliver Frieda. While her mother waited, she still cared for older children and did her usual work. Frieda was proud to be a farmer's daughter, working with family and learning how to get things done and be a good steward of God's Providence. In fact, her husband would later say she could even make soap. After she finished high school, Frieda worked as a nurse's aide. However, she returned to the farm when she was needed. When her brothers went to World War II, she did the work they usually performed. In the 1940's, she stayed with her sister, Ruth, and family in Lodi until she got a job caring for a woman who needed care in her home. Later, Frieda worked as a nurse's aide at Buchanan Hospital in Lodi. After a patient's mother met Frieda, the mother told her son to go find Frieda. The son was James Spagnola. He found her. Then they began to build their world together. During her time at the hospital, she was present at the delivery of Albert Spagnola, who would later be her nephew. Frieda and James were married May 8, 1949, on Mother's Day. As James and brother, Julius, were partners at the Woodbridge Inn and adjacent riverfront property, they made plans to enhance the beautiful riverfront. When the opportunity came for Frieda to operate the restaurant at the Woodbridge Inn, she used her gifts of organization and resourcefulness, along with much labor, to make it a magnet for diners. People were amazed that Frieda remembered the order without writing it down. Frieda and sister-in-law, Louise, are famous in the Lodi area for pizzas, pan-fried chicken, and Italian dinners. Many people have said they would like one more pan-fried chicken. All this responsibility did not keep her from Eureka for her family reunion each year. They also used the Woodbridge Inn for many years for family holidays. Meanwhile they cleared the waterfront and improved the docks for boaters with Julius and son, Sam. Frieda worked as a nurse's aide at the new Community Hospital in Lodi until her retirement. She was a Charter Member of New Hope Community Church. She enjoyed the Lodi Community Concerts, and she was a season subscriber for many years. Frieda and James were married 66 years before his passing last June. She went to join the Eternal Harvest on the Eve of their 67th Wedding Anniversary, May 7, 2016. Frieda is survived by her son, Sam (Gina) Spagnola; granddaughter, Angel (Matt) Titsworth; great-grandchildren, Ryan and Dillon Titsworth; sisters, Ruth Dais and Betty Ehmke; brothers, Leo (Otillia), Bill (Estella) and Tom (Vivian); and sisters-in-law, Lois Merkel, Loretta Merkel, and Agnes Merkel. She is also survived by numerous nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her husband, James Spagnola and brothers, Rudolf, Andrew, and Milton Merkel. Services will be held Friday, May 20, 2016, 10:00 a.m. at Evergreen Chapel, Cherokee Memorial Park. Committal will be private. There is no visitation. The family would like to extend their sincere appreciation to Brookdale Kettleman Lane, Lodi, for their excellent care and compassion. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made in Frieda's name to New Hope Community Church, 330 S. Fairmont Ave., Lodi, CA 95240; Vitas Hospice, 1388 Sutter St. Suite 700, San Francisco, CA 94103; or donor's choice. A Luncheon Reception will immediately follow the service at Woodbridge Inn, Woodbridge, CA. A guest book may be signed at http://www.lodifuneralhome.com where memories can be shared.
