Nedra Freeman

October 2, 1947 — August 15, 2022


Nedra, 74, of Brazoria, succumbed to cancer after a valiant six-year battle. She was a precious, gentle, kind, and loving wife, mother, grandmother, sister, and friend.

Nedra was born to Harold and Betty Hodges in Rolla, Missouri. She grew up in Desloge, Missouri and graduated in 1965 as Salutatorian of her class. She married the love of her life, Bill Freeman. Nine years later they welcomed their daughter, Rici Michelle. In 1976, they moved to Texas. Nedra joined the staff of First National Bank of Lake Jackson as secretary to the bank president, H.L. Baker, Jr. For 40 years, she served the bank and considered her coworkers as her second family.

Nedra was preceded in death by her parents, her precious infant granddaughter Callie Grace Ellis, brother Richard Hodges and niece Daphne Bartle.

Left to cherish Nedra’s memories are her husband of 57 years Bill Freeman, daughter Rici (Derek) Ellis, twin sisters Marolyn (Harry) Wilkes of Brazoria, Texas, and Carolyn (Roger) Hogan of Farmington, Missouri. She leaves two loving grandchildren Baylie (Lane) Pressler of McKinney, Texas and Wyatt Ellis of Sweeny, Texas, and many beloved nieces, nephews, and dear friends Mark and Diane Andrews.

Honorary pallbearers will be Wyatt Ellis, Lance Hogan, Clint Wilkes, Lance Andrews, Lucas Andrews, and Adrian Daugherty.

A memorial service celebrating Nedra’s life will be at 11:00 a.m. Saturday, August 20, 2022, at Faith Baptist Church, 2489 FM 1459 Sweeny, Texas.
