Freda Eloise Anderson


Freda Eloise Anderson

It is with great sadness that we announce the death of Freda Eloise Anderson on October 13th, 2020 at the Dr Everett Chalmers Hospital, Fredericton.

Freda was born in Amherst, NS on August 17th, 1919, to the late Burton and Eloise (McKay) Shipley.  Freda married Earle D. Anderson on September 15th, 1943.  Freda was predeceased by her parents, husband Earle, brothers Eldon, Wylie, Laurie and Cecil Shipley and grandson Paul Anderson.  She is survived by two sons, Allister (Anna)of Hanwell and Rodger (Sylvia) of Charters Settlement; four grandchildren, June (Paul) DeMerchant of Fredericton, Michael (Wanda) Anderson of London ON, Karen (Rockland) Miller of Charters Settlement and Teena (Tim) Merrithew of Fredericton; ten great grandchildren, Katie (William) MacMackin, Laura (Sam) Renault, Robert DeMerchant (Marissa), Peter Gwen and Clair Anderson, Thomas (Holly) Miller and Jenna (Mike) Richards, Jessica (Brandon) McCafferty and Leigh-Anna MacDougall as well as several nieces, nephews and cousins.

Freda was an assessment clerk with the province of Ontario for many years prior to her retirement and was a longstanding member of the Brunswick Street Baptist Church. Freda and Earle enjoyed many happy winters as Snowbirds in Florida.  She was at her Happiest when helping and spending time with friends and family, especially her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.  She was a long-time member of Imperial Rebekah Lodge No. 102 for 78 years and the Independent Order of Foresters, Women’s Missionary Society and the quilters group of Brunswick Street Baptist Church.  She always loved a good game of cards and was the life of the party even at 101.

For those who wish to make a donation in Freda’s memory, donations can be made to Brunswick Street Baptist Church or the donor’s choice.

The Family would like to express their sincere appreciation to the staff on 4 East at the DECH for the excellent care they gave Freda during her stay there.

Due to Covid 19 concerns, a private family graveside service will be held in the Douglas Rural Cemetery.
