Obituary of Ann France Freda

Ann France Freda, 89, died January 21, 2017 at University Medical Center of Princeton at Plainsboro surrounded by her family. Mrs. Freda, a longtime resident of Princeton, was a RN working on the surgical floors A-1, A-3, and J-6 of Princeton Hospital. While on A-1 she was promoted to Head Nurse, that title was changed to Nursing Care Coordinator(NCC) years later. Mrs. Freda had a stellar reputation and was known to run a tight ship with excellent patient outcomes; she was loved by her patients and respected by physicians, nurses and other hospital staff. Many of her former nursing staff credit her with instilling in them the importance of patient care, treating every patient with dignity and respect. Mrs. Freda went back to school at the age of 51 to earn her B.S. degree. She retired in 1997 as the NCC of J-6. In retirement Mrs. Freda participated in the Grandpal Reading Program at Littlebrook Elementary School serving as a Grandpal for many children, including two of her own grandchildren. She was a longtime parishioner of St Paul’s Catholic Church. Mrs. Freda was born on March 31, 1927, in Scranton, PA, to Gertrude and Stanford France. Mrs. Freda graduated from St. Mary Hospital School of Nursing in Scranton before moving to Princeton in 1951 to start her nursing career at Princeton Hospital. She was married in 1951 and raised three children in Princeton. Mrs. Freda is survived by her children, Maureen Freda Peterson and husband, William Peterson, of Bowie, Maryland; Kathy Freda of Olympia, Washington; Mark Freda and his wife, Beth Ogilvie Freda, of Princeton; her beloved grandchildren, Brandon Boyd of Aliso Viejo, California; Dawn Boyd of Billings, Montana; and Rebecca & Alex Freda of Princeton. She is also survived by her sister-in-law, Rosemary Roberto, of Hamilton, New Jersey and many nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her parents and her dear sister, Barbara France Dunne of Manassas, Virginia. Contributions in her memory may be made to: Princeton HealthCare System Foundation and directed to the Annual Fund, Hospice or any other department at Princeton HealthCare System Foundation, 3626 US Route One, Princeton, NJ 08540.
