Frances Friedrich Obituary

Frances Louise Friedrich, 93, longtime Fayette resident, passed away November 29, 2023, at Glasgow Gardens.

Frances was born in rural Fayette on October 8, 1930, a daughter of Benny Franklin and Louise Beach Lay.  She married Edward Carl Friedrich, Jr. on October 30, 1948, and he preceded her in death.

Frances was a determined hard-working individual.  She was employed as a cook with the Fayette Public Schools for thirty-eight years and later with the Fayette Senior Center for many years, long after most people retire.  She was a member of the First Christian Church in Fayette.  She enjoyed gardening, jig saw puzzles, sewing, embroidery and going on walks.

Cherishing her memory include her daughter, Suzanne Mueller and husband, Chris; five grandchildren; five great-grandchildren and nieces and nephews.

In addition to her husband, Frances was preceded in death by her parents; a son, Donald Wayne Friedrich; a daughter, Janice Owen; a granddaughter, Alyssa Owen and a sister, Ruth Innes.

Funeral services honoring Frances’ life will be held at 11:00 AM, Wednesday, December 6, 2023, at Carr-Yager Funeral Home in Fayette.  Visitation will be one hour prior to the service.  Interment will follow the service at Walnut Ridge Cemetery in Fayette.
