Frieda’s family moved to Yarrow, B.C., in 1943 and to Vancouver in 1954. She met Rudy at Vancouver MB Church. In the 1970s, Rudy and Frieda were both involved in student life at Columbia Bible College, Abbotsford, B.C. She enjoyed working many years at Woodward’s, Prince George, B.C., and The Bay, Abbotsford. Frieda had a kind, caring spirit that others were drawn to. She sang in the church choir and a nonet called Instruments of Praise. Frieda loved to garden. She read and shared her library. After a devastating accident in 1996 limited her abilities, she continued to use her gifts by sewing blankets with Helping Hands. Frieda and Rudy travelled, filling many photo albums. Frieda valued her family. She cherished time together and demonstrated unconditional love.
