Amanda Carol Freeman, 57, of Whitesboro (formerly of Sanger), passed away following a lengthy illness, surrounded by her family.
On February 23, 1964, Carol was born in Seagraves, Texas, to Herbert Lee and Wanda Josephine (nee Caswell) Stewart. Her family moved to Sanger, where she attended and graduated from school. She met Johnny Nix Freeman, and they were married in 1982. They raised their children in Sanger and later moved to Whitesboro, Texas. Carol worked in various positions for Verizon (formerly GTE) for over twenty years.
Carol was a loving wife, mother, and grandmother. She was affectionately known as “Gigi,” a title that she wore proudly. Her family was her whole world, and she gave the best hugs. They loved going to her house because of the love that filled their home and because she was an excellent cook.
She is survived by her husband, Johnny Freeman of Whitesboro; daughter, Amanda Nicole Voogt and husband, Alan of Lake Kiowa and son, Johnny Lynn Freeman and wife, Mila of Whitesboro; five sisters, Sherry Nixon of Roanoke, Leigh Knight of Florida, Sarah Nixon of Collinsville, Farah Nixon of Denton, and Susie Nixon also of Denton; five brothers, Carl Stewart of Palestine, Phil Nixon of Mason, OH, Matthew Nixon of Sanger, Danny Nixon of Carrollton, and James Nixon of Gainesville. Five grandchildren, Mya Kimber Freeman, Johnny Asa Freeman, Azel James Schumacher, Piper Michelle Voogt, and Robert Alan Voogt, III, also survive her. Carol is preceded in death by a sister, Chris Stewart, and a brother Edward E. Nixon.
The family wishes to thank Heart to Heart Hospice and Carol’s precious daughter-in-law, Mila, for the care they gave over the past few years.Read More
