Born on October 12, 1925 in Pearisburg, Virginia
Departed on June 4, 2021 in Palm Bay, Florida
Frieda passed away at William Childs Hospice House on June 4, 2021 in the arms of Jesus. She was born in Pearisburg, Virginia on October 12, 1925.
She resided in Melbourne, Florida for 63 years. She was predeceased by her husband of 40 years William “Bill” Smith. She is survived by one daughter Pamela Smith and several nieces and nephews.
Frieda worked at Jordan Marsh in Melbourne, Florida as sales associate for 10 years. Frieda was a caring and loving wife and mom. She will be remembered for her sense of humor, her kindness and her love for friends and family. Her daughter would like to thank the staff at William Childs Hospice House who handled my mother’s care with professionalism, compassion, and sympathy. She will be missed by many friends, family and her cat “Prince”.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations to St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital or William Childs Hospice House. A celebration of life will be held at a later date.

I met Frieda when I was 20. I'm a little bit older now, but the memories I have of sweet Frieda will be treasured forever. Pam and I have been friends for 40 yrs. My best memory is going over for dinner on Wednesday night and Frieda making the best dinner on the planet. She will be missed.
