Agnes Janet Freed of Pawley’s Island, SC passed peacefully and humbly while fighting daily to be with her beloved husband Richard “Dick” Freed for as long as they both could be together in this earthly life. A life of 91 years and a loyal marriage of 72 years are to be rejoiced!!
From the streets of Washington D.C. where they met on the sidewalk going to school, to Agnes’s enduring loyalty to Dick when he was shipped off to Korea to the several houses where they made homes and friends from Springfield, VA to St. Petersburg, FL to Columbia, MD to Rockville, MD and eventually retiring to a great life and WONDERFUL COMMUNITY OF FRIENDS in Pawley’s Island, SC.
Agnes served her country as a career Civil Servant for the Department of Defense and the Department of Health and Human Services, but her greatest successes came as a wife, a mother, a daughter, a sister and a friend. She will always be remembered for her smile, her enduring perseverance, her sharing, her caring, her loving and her giving.
Agnes is survived by her husband Richard (Dick) Wayne Freed, her son Richard Allen Freed, her grandchildren Christopher Richard Freed and Emily Clare Freed and her adoring daughter in-law Clare Sullivan Freed.
