Freida Painter


Freida Painter danced her way out Friday November 4th 2022 just 23 days short of her 101st B-Day. Freidas’ zest for life was there to the end. She is survived by her Daughter Lisa Painter Buckley and her Husband Bob Buckley. Her Granddaughter Dusty Rooker and her Husband Geoff Rooker, her grandson Colie Wdowiak, grand daughter Alex Buckley and Grandson Kade Buckley, great grandson Jake Rooker and great Grand Daughter Shea Rooker. She is preceded in death by her son Ronald Painter. Freida took on life with a passion whether playing Golf - where she logged 9 holes in one or dancing (the cha-cha, jitter bug…..) and the list goes on. Gammy we will miss you. Burial services will be private per Freidas’ request. Condolences may be shared at
