Freida M. Adams, 79, of Chippewa Falls died unexpectedly Tuesday, July 28, 2009, at Sacred Heart Hospital in Eau Claire.
She was born May 5, 1930, in Eau Claire to Leo and Josephine (Ticer) Greening. She married Donald E. Adams on July 5, 1952, at St. Patrick's Catholic Church in Eau Claire, and they lived in the area all their life. Freida loved life and the world as it was. She enjoyed gardening - raising both flowers and vegetables. She was a very active member of Holy Ghost Catholic Church in Chippewa Falls, being in the choir as well as volunteering for many projects. Her love of music was displayed by her participation in the Chippewa Valley Gospel Choir. She loved going to "sports events" with her grandchildren and the events they were involved in. She was a member of The Red Hat Society, and, oh, how she loved her chocolates and "partying with her neighbors." In the past, Freida was an avid bowler, doing mixed doubles with Don. She was a past president of the Eau Claire PTA and a Cub Scout den mother. She loved "all" children, which was evident by her having numerous "foster children" over the years.
She is survived by three children, Donn (Kim) of Elk Mound, Mark of Eau Claire and Kathy (Larry) of Osseo; 11 grandchildren, Stacy, Sean, Jason, Ariel and Jeremy, Nicole, Larry Jr., Bridget and Stephanie, and Cody and Sammy; 17 great-grandchildren; sisters, Doris (Bob) Berzinski of Stanley, Ginger Greening of Willard and Pat (Mike) Sixel of Eau Claire; one brother, Michael (Ellen) Artac of Willard; many foster children; and many nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.
Freida was preceded in death by her parents, Leo Greening and Ludwig and Josephine (Ticer) Artac; and her husband, Donald, in 1993.
A Mass of Christian burial will take place at 11 a.m. Friday, July 31, 2009, at Holy Ghost Catholic Church, Chippewa Falls, with the Rev. Arul Joseph officiating. Interment at Calvary Cemetery Mausoleum will follow the service and fellowship.
Friends may call from 4 to 7 p.m. today (Thursday, July 30) at Stokes, Prock and Mundt Funeral Chapel, Altoona, where there will be a 7 p.m. wake service, and one hour before the service Friday at the church.
Donations in Freida's name may be directed to the Chippewa Valley Gospel Choir or The Red Hat Society.
Stokes, Prock and Mundt Funeral Chapel of Altoona is serving the family.
