Hi Wes, Yes Freda was my mother. She passed away back in 1979. She would be 76 years old had she lived.
I am happy to 'meet' a classmate of hers from her childhood. I am always interested in hearing stories about my parents childhoods so if you have memories of Mom to share I would love to know. Please feel free to email me at my email addy.
My Dad was Burl Allen. Did you know him as well?
Take care now.
