Freda Jeanette Cecconi

July 14, 1924 - February 15, 2017


Freda passed away peacefully on February 15 with family at her side. She was predeceased by her husband Ed in 2010.

Freda is survived by her daughters Susan (Chris) Gaudet, Della Cecconi and Kerry (Doug) Fraser, grandchildren Melissa Fraser, Bryce (Nicole) Fraser, Meryl Fraser and Dean Thorsell, as well as great-grandchildren Xzavier, Jennings, Vada and Griffin. She is also survived by her sister Audrey Heavenor, sister-in-law Vilma Baker and many nieces and nephews.

Mom was born in Noel, Nova Scotia, and moved at a young age with her family to Powell River, where they settled in the Edgehill area. She completed her schooling and went to hairdressing school in Vancouver, returned to Powell River and opened up her own beauty salon in Westview called “Freda's.” A romance between Freda and Ed commenced while they both rode the bus to their respective jobs. They were soon married, built two homes in their life together and raised three daughters.

Mom was a loving wife and mother, kept a beautiful home and a large yard was meticulously looked after by her. She was a fabulous cook and passed on her love of cooking to her girls. She also had a great love for her dogs.

Prayers will be held at 7 pm on Friday, February 24, and a funeral will be held at 1 pm on Saturday, February 25, at Church of the Assumption. A gathering of friends and family will follow at St. Joseph's Hall.

Thank you to all who cared for Mom during the past few years, including caregivers at Evergreen Care Unit, Dr. Addison, and special thanks to Cathy and Cheryl-Lynn while Mom lived at home.

Contributions may be made to Alzheimer Society of Canada.
Mom, you are so missed. We love you, but happy that you are with Dad again. Bye mom, be good, and we'll see you later.
