Virginia Freeman

By submitted, 04/12/21 2:17 PM
Virginia “Ginny” Freeman was born August 14th, 1933 in Lamber, Montana and died January 7th; peacefully in sleep at home in Hope, Arkansas. She was preceded in death by her parents, Lincoln Stanton and Emma Stanton, and since her death, a son Ross Fredericks.

She is survived by husband, Bill Freeman of Hope; two sons, Jack Fredericks (Sue) of California, and Gary Fredericks (Aurelia) of Washington; two brothers, Blithe Stanton (Joyce) of Washington, Richard Stanton (Arlene) of Arizona; and a sister, Loretta Hazelton (Dean) of Ohio: and numbers nieces, nephews and cousins.

“Ginny” traveled extensively throughout the US, Canada, and even Over Seas with husband Bill, as he traveled with his Lions work. Family was always very important, which resulted in even more travel; always by auto where possible, as “Ginny” had a fear of flying. After the boys were all in school, she worked as Secretary, Bookkeeper and Office Manager for several companies in California.

Upon relocating to Arkansas (Bill’s place of birth) in 1990, Ginny discovered a whole new style of living. She was overheard to comment it was like living in a foreign country!! Soon though, she converted to “Red Neck” mode and began to act like a “Native”. She and Bill continued with Lion’s travel and trips back out to the coast to see the boys, going so far as to fly to Hawaii several times. She worked in “Temp” positions around Hope for several more years.

There will be a “Celebration of Life” in the Chapel at Brazzel/Oakcrest Funeral Home in Hope on Saturday, April 17th at 2:00 PM. The family asks in lieu of flowers, make a memorial donation to Mid-South Lions Sight and Hearing or a charity of your choice. Funeral services are under the direction of BRAZZEL/Oakcrest The Funeral Home of Hope, Eddie Brazzel, Director. Online condolences: www.brazzelfuneralhomes.com
