FREDDIE's Obituary

A Time to Be Born…


Freddie B. Arnold was born July 17, 1946, to proud parents, Martha and Frank Arnold of Arlington, Tennessee. 


A Time to Plant...

The seeds of faith were planted deeply within her and she came to know love the Lord.  She accepted Christ as her personal Savior at an early age and later became a servant of the Lord.


A Time to Love...

Freddie was blessed to know the meaning of love. During the early years of Freddie's life, she relocated to Chicago, Illinois. While in Chicago, she became a member of Holy Trinity Missionary Baptist Church. Freddie was so full of life and she enjoyed quiet time, reading and family. She retired from Sears, Roebuck and Co. after many years of dedicated service.


A Time to Die...

The Lord saw Freddie at her bedside and sent His angels on Saturday, May 1, 2021. They closed her eyes in eternal sleep as she went home to claim her crown.

Freddie’s parents preceded her in death, as well as one brother, Robert Arnold, and two sisters:  Nancy Davis and Billie Stratton.


A Time to Mourn...

Left to celebrate her homegoing, but to treasure and cherish beautiful memories, are her two children: Yolanda Yvette (Vance) Nicholson of Milwaukee, WI, and Leonardo (Marquiette) Arnold of Chicago, IL; two sisters: Dorothy Smith (Florida) and Rosie Lee Bradley (Chicago); one brother, William Arnold (Glendale Heights) two granddaughters: Sharonda and Sydney; one grandson, Leonardo Jr., one great grandson, Kasen, and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, family, and friends.
