Obituary of Freida J. Todd
Freida Joan Peters Todd, age 74, departed this earth on Saturday July 10, 2021 after a long battle with cancer to rest eternally in the arms of the Lord. She left Hospice Care of St. Elizabeth surrounded by the love of her family. The daughter of the late Hubert and Sallie (Warren) Peters, she was born in Barbourville, KY on February 18, 1947. Freida retired from Grimes Aerospace. Possessing a deep love for the Lord, Freida could always be found reading her Bible every morning. She was a prayer warrior, “the rock of the family,” everyone’s cheerleader, and always had encouraging advice for those who needed it. Freida enjoyed puzzles, quilting, and home-grown maters (served any style, but usually just with a little salt, fresh off the vine). Freida’s most treasured times though, were spent with family and friends.
Freida was preceded in death by her parents; brother Kenneth Peters; sisters Maudean Smith and Janice Mays Bruner; along with four nephews and 2 nieces. Surviving to carry on her love and light are her beloved husband of 59 years William Todd, Sr.; daughter Tammy Jackson (Shawn); son William “Hoppy” Todd, Jr.; siblings Alma Smith, Sonny Peters (Shirley), Margaret Ann Mills (Don), Carolyn Sue Bright (Denver), Tammy Richmond (Mike); grandchildren Jerome Todd, Kaleb Gamble, Cameron Gamble; along with four great-grandchildren and numerous nieces, nephews, cousins, and cherished friends.
A visitation will be held on Thursday July 15, 2021 from 11am to 1pm with a joyous funeral service celebrating Freida’s life directly to follow at 1pm at Big Bone Baptist Church, 11036 Big Bone Church Road, Union, KY 41091. Freida will be laid to rest at Big Bone Baptist Cemetery. Memorials may be made to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital or Shriners Hospital For Children.
