Freda Margaret Teaster Herrmann
March 9, 1938 – April 3, 2018
Clewiston, Fl. – Freda peacefully separated from this life on an early Spring morning and is now asleep in Christ. A smoky mountain girl at heart, she was always ready to share with pride where she was from and passed those memories and ancestry on to her family through the tradition of story-tellin'. Many of those stories included her experiences working at the Parkway Market in Gatlinburg, and of the life in Elkmont where she lived and worked as a caretaker for Mrs. Townsend, as well as her earlier memories as a child spent in the mountains, and long as she could she went back home to East Tennessee to visit kin and share in homecomings and Decoration Day.
Even though her heart was big for Tennessee she spent the majority of her years here in Florida making it her permanent residence. She was previously employed by the Handy store in Moore Haven and went on to work for Hendry General (Regional) Hospital in Clewiston in the business office including holding the position of business manager for a duration.
Freda was predeceased by her mother, Josie Ownby Teaster, her father Clifford C. Teaster, her brother Clifford C. Teaster, her brother Clyde V. Teaster, and sister Verl Morrison.
She is survived by her son Gary L. Moore (Linda) of Clewiston, FL., granddaughter, Wendy Walker (Robert, Jr.) of Deland, FL., grandson Gary Leon Moore (Kendall) and two great-grandchildren, Elizabeth and Dylan of Clarksville, TN. Freda is also survived by her brothers Von Teaster (Etheleen), and Rex Teaster (Jean) of Seiverville, TN.
She will be laid to rest at Ridgelawn Cemetery in Clewiston, FL. after a funeral at 1 p.m. on Friday, April 6, 2018 at Akin-Davis Funeral Home with Pastor Troy Ezell officiating. Visitation will be one hour before the service held at the funeral home.
