Eddy Marie Free was a wondeful caring wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother, sister, and friend. She was an independent and strong lady. She left this world on May 8th, 2021, at age 85.
Eddy loved spending time on the road in an RV going places and seeing family. Her and her late husband Don went all over the USA. She loved going to the beach. Her favorite things were family gatherings and getting together with everyone. Once she settled down in one spot, she enjoyed being with family and friends. She was a great bookkeeper, valued by her bosses. Even after retirement she stayed close to Harry and Leona Whipple. Eddy was a Dr. Pepper lover. Anyone that knew her thought it ran through her veins. Yellow is her favorite color - sunshine and the yellow rose of Texas.
