Frieda M. Elliott
October 16, 1938 – October 4, 2021
Frieda Magdalena (Konig) Elliott , 82, of Marlow, passed away on October 4, 2021 at Langdon Place of Keene after a lengthy battle with Dementia with family by her side.
She was born on October 16, 1938 in Wurzburg, Germany, the daughter of Frieda Magdalena (Schachner) Konig and Johann Konig. She spent her early childhood in Wurzburg and later relocated to Amorbach with her mother and siblings after losing her father during WWII. It was there that she met the love of her life Richard (Dick) Elliott.
Frieda left her country as a very young bride when she met and married her Military husband Richard. She followed him through 20 years of Military Service and they eventually retired and built their home and settled in Marlow, NH. She was known to her family and friends as “Fred” or “Magda.” She loved her home and loved spending time with her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She was a babysitter for family, numerous friends and neighbors in the area. She enjoyed knitting, gardening and playing Bingo. She was employed shortly for Fuller Machine in Alstead, NH.
Frieda was an exceptional Grandmother to both her grandchildren and great- grandchildren. She never forgot a birthday and always did the most she could possibly do for all of them. As adults they all knew where to go for a good cooked German meal and a black & blue; as it was known that if you touched Grams hair bad things happened to you. She was proud of her grandchildren, she would tell everyone about them, what they were doing, good or bad, when and how. Her words she spoke loudly but ever so clear the lesson she taught us we will always hold dear. She was a special grandmother, someone who played a special part in all the memories she gave each one of us that we will forever hold within our hearts.
Frieda will be dearly missed by her three daughters: JoAnn May and her husband Bill of Marlow, Sandy Elliott of Winchester, and Diane Coon and her husband Raymond of Hillsborough; brother-in-laws: Donald Elliott of Marlow, Guy Elliott and his wife Becky of Marlow; sister-in-laws: Katherine Elliott of Marlow, Rose Elliott of Marlow, and Carol Hobbs of Keene; grandchildren: Kelly, Bill, and Adam May and partner Kelsey Bristol; Garry Kenyon and his wife Bethany , AJ Britton and her husband Glenn; Mark Bouley and his wife Gayle, Shannon Bernier and her husband Jacques; great-grandchildren: Madison, Payton and Harper May; Freya Kenyon, Noah Britton, Samantha, Mark, Valerie and Alexis Bouley, Samantha and Ben Miller and Piper Bernier and many nieces, nephews, and extended family members. Frieda was expecting a new great-granddaughter in December.
She is predeceased by her husband of 62 years Richard F. Elliott, brothers: Karl and Otto Konig, her sister Gusti and brother-in-law Toni Haufgluckner, nephews Heiko Haufgluckner and Stanley Elliott, brother-in-laws James Elliott, Charles Elliott, and David Elliott; and sister-in-law: Beverly Elliott and good friend Gerdi Rock.
Her family would like to Thank Hospice for the compassionate and excellent care they provided.
There are no calling hours. A Graveside Service will be held at a later date at the Northside Cemetery in Marlow, NH. Donations may be made in Frieda’s memory to Hospice, PO Box 564, Keene, NH 03431.

I have many fond memories of Freida, especially when I was in college with one of her granddaughters, Kelly. We would visit her and play cards together and she would cook the most amazing foods. I especially remember cucumber salad and German chocolate cake! She always made me feel welcome. I will miss her greatly ❤️
