She was welcomed into God’s kingdom on July 17th surrounded by her family.
Elfrieda Lillian Frese (Pedercini) was born in Adams, MA to Gertrude Emma Pedercini (Schmidt) and Joseph J. Pedercini on December 22, 1925.
She married Leonard Francis Frese June 15, 1946 at St. John’s Church in North Adams. She worked at Clark Biscuit in North Adams. She was a devoted wife, mother, sister, aunt, cousin and friend.

Frieda always had a story to tell. She met everyone with kindness and a smile. She loved reading, cats, playing cards, bingo, and spending time with family and friends. Frieda’s warmth and generosity touched the lives of many. She seemed to live by a quote from Mother Teresa which states, “Spread love everywhere you go. Let no one ever come to you without leaving happier.”
She was predeceased by her son, Alfred Frese and her husband, Leonard Frese.
She is survived by her sister, Janet Morton (Pedercini) of North Adams, MA and brother, Alfred Pedercini of Syracuse, NY along with several cousins, nieces and nephews.
