Charlie, Darcie, Charla, Brandon and Logan, it was always an extreme pleasure when Frieda and Charles came over every time we made the trip to Fairborn to see you all. They were truly family to us hill dwellers from Mingo Junction. Charles could grab onto a vertical fence post and extend his body horizontally off the ground. There probably aren’t many gymnasts who could pull that off! And Frieda always made two blueberry cheesecakes cause she knew I could eat an entire one myself. It was always comforting when Charles was at the camping trip at Ohio Power Recreation Lands. We went to the country store for ice cream sometimes while there. Good memories!!! We love you all.

Hey Wayne, Wendell. I am so sorry to hear Aunt Frieda has passed from this horrible disease. We all loved her so much. She was a true aunt where I always felt welcome and a part of your family. One of my biggest moments was on my birthday every year she would mail my birthday card so I would get a surprise even though we only lived two houses down from you. Who else got mail when your only 6? I have been a close member of your family all of my life and I feel the loss. All of the neices and nephews kept in touch with Frieda throughout the years because we knew she loved us and she cared what we were doing and how our lives were. Every member of your family, Uncle Charles, Ray, Jimmy, and Aunt Frieda and you guys of course, have a family connection that can't be broken and the Barkers are a part of it. I love you. Annitta

Many great memories on Lowell Drive with this lady; my great aunt. Where do I begin; we always seemed to include Mamaw in our pranks and Mom sometimes had a roll in them. I guess when we told Mamaw that I dyed my hair, Mom was in on that one. I told Mamaw not to tell Mom that I was going to Frieda’s house to see if I could wash it out. Soon as I left her Mamaw called Mom & said don’t say anything Brendy has dyed her hair coal black & she has gone to Frieda’s. Mamaw came to Frieda’s; her sister who lived next door to her, I had put a towel around my head & dampened the front where it gathered. Frieda was shaking her head at Mamaw when she came in; Mamaw said still a little dark. I never had anything on my hair; it was it’s natural color... 😂 Great memory; one of many!
