Frieda was born on June 26, 1934, in Albuquerque NM, to George and Mildred Crosby. Frieda married the love of her life, Dudley Parks, on February 14, 1984, in Hagerman NM. Even after 33 plus years of marriage, their love for each other was unwavering and heartwarming to all who knew them.
Frieda was a loving person who really never met a stranger and would bend over backward for her children, family, and friends. She was very passionate when it came to her art work, her talent for sketching and painting ceramics was out of this world. She had a love for the great outdoors and loved walking, whether it is from one end of Roswell to the other, or a trip on the back off the motorcycle with her husband, out to the boondocks, to hunt for cactus for her cactus garden at home. And last but not least, we must remember her closest companion, her dog Ginger, which made her smile from ear to ear.
She was blessed with four wonderful children and six equally wonderful stepchildren: her daughter, Donna Hobbs and her sons: David Stone and his wife, Kathy, Mark Stone and Travis Greer and his wife, Elsie, Linda Hernes and her husband, Gary, Catherine Shanks and her husband, Bill, Dale Parks, David Parks and his wife, Renee, Paul Parks and Gary Parks and his husband, Lloyd. She had 16 amazing grandchildren: Shannon, Mathew, Brain, Dennis and his wife, Stephanie, Olivia and her husband, Steven, Amanda and her husband, Sam, Tayna and her husband, Scott, Timothy, Sarah and her husband, Nate, Frieda, Kimberley, Barney, Shauna, Michelle and her husband, Mark, Melissa and her husband, Robert, Linda and her husband, Dwayne and 36 great-grandchildren. She was from a large family having eight siblings who included, one brother Billy (George) and seven sisters: Margie, Millie, Georgie, Bobbie, Patsy, Judy, Joyce. She also had many nieces, nephews and friends who will miss her dearly.
Frieda is survived by the love of her life, Dudley Parks. Even as the end drew near they would sit and hold hands and she would tell him how much she loved him.
Preceding her in death were her parents, George and Mildred Crosby, her son, Mark Stone, stepson, Paul Parks and sisters: Margie, Millie, Bobbie and Patsy.
This tribute was lovingly written in honor of Frieda by her family.
