Bravely, and with a light heart, Freda peacefully passed away surrounded by her family, following a six-year battle with ovarian cancer.
Freda is survived by her loving husband of 49 years Sam; children Anita and Michael; Tina and Joe; Stephanie and Lorenzo; grandchildren Maya, Tia, Ewan, Nathan, Allegra and Matteo; sister Margaret (Peggy) Cyr.
She is fondly remembered by her many sisters- and brothers-in-law, cousins, nieces, nephews, godchildren as well as countless friends.
Her grandchildren meant the world to her and she attended many dance recitals, awards ceremonies and school concerts. Her family brought her great joy and she always placed their needs before her own.
Freda touched the hearts of many people and will be remembered for her warm smile and positive attitude. Freda’s life was full of happy moments and she enjoyed travelling, dancing, gardening and baking – she was famous for her no bake cheese cake. She will be forever missed.
