She was born on Aug. 21, 1961, in Fayetteville, N.C.
Freeda had a strong will and a big heart. She had a unique spice for life and a very competitive nature. Some of her favorite things were watching her husband rodeo, a boat trip down the Little Su, old Western movies, playing with her dogs (especially dalmatians), vacations to Las Vegas, all types of athletics (especially softball) and shopping of any kind.
Freeda will be forever remembered for her infectious laugh, sharp wit and sarcastic humor. To know Freeda was to love her.
Freeda is survived by her husband, Jay Adams; her mother and father, Freelon and Elloyse Stanberry; her brothers and their wives, Alan and Dawn Stanberry and David and Kathy Stanberry; brothers-in-law, Anthony and Richard Adams, Lance Vallo; sister-in-law, June Hatten; nieces and nephews, Devon Thomas, David “Bo” Stanberry, Kevin Stanberry, Megan Adams, Cory Adams, Carol Hatten, Wayne Hatten, Jacob Adams, Alyssa Adams, and Alexandria Adams; and her beloved caregiver and best friend, Henrietta Provost.
