Joe and Freda enjoyed doing everything together from camping, to gardening, to entertaining grandchildren, to serving in the Church and will be happy to be together again.

She served a mission with Joe in 1980 - 81 in the Mississippi Jackson Mission, taught in many auxiliaries and served as Primary President, Young Women's President and as a Relief Society President.
