Fredia Lee Alvarado
16 September, 1941 – 10 October, 2021
Fredia Lee Alvarado, age 80, of Nashville, Tennessee passed away on Sunday, October 10, 2021. She was born September 16, 1941.
Babysitting was Fredia's passion and she spoke of it fondly, even in her final days. She remembered the names of the children she kept and, often, told stories about them. Some would say it was the "work she was born to do". She also loved to sew and make baby blankets. After she retired from babysitting, she held many showings and displayed and sold the blankets she had made. Before his passing, her husband, Al, spent much of his time helping her set-up and tear-down her displays. Her family has peace knowing she and Al are reunited and are in heaven with all those that have gone on before them.
Fredia is survived by her daughter, Jan Stephens; her sister, Susie Depriest, and her brother, Stevie Stephens.
Fredia was preceded in death by her husband, Al Alvarado; her daughter, Vivian Padilla; her brother, Jimmy Stephens, her brother, Johnny Stephens; and her canine companion and friend, Sammy.

My mother, like me hated bugs. I remember this one night we are all setting outside enjoying the cool evening air and mom was laughing at her husband Al, they was always laughing about something, and mom jumps up out of the blue and was screaming that a bug had flown down her shirt , To this day I have never seen my mother run this fast and she was removing clothes as she ran to the house. Al and I both was laughing until we was both crying!! Of course mom was extremely mad at us for not helping her find that bug!! Later I found out there was no bug Al had thrown a small rock down her shirt and to this day we never told her any different.
