Freida Pearl (Faulkner) Hartsock-
The Universe opened up and received the most beautiful and loving woman there ever was. If there ever was a Saint on Earth, it was our Aunt Freida.
Freida was born on March 8, 1926 on Offutt Street in Cumberland, MD to John Carl and Maude Berle (Twigg) Faulkner.
On August 5, 1950, she married the love her of life, her “Honey,” Kenneth Hartsock. They never had children of their own but considered us as their own.
“Freidy Pearl” as she was affectionately called by her Honey and her nieces, was preceded in death by her parents; her Honey Kenneth; her brother George; sister Zelda; Zelda’s children Cheryl and Dale Goff; and, her great niece Cheyenne Autumn Haines, whom she loved dearly,
Freida took care of her parents, her brother, and her Honey when they each became ill. She lovingly supported and guided Becci through the illness and passing of Cheyenne. Always caring for everyone else, not once worrying that she herself had cancer—then COVID struck. She was a survivor, but she was also tired. She worked hard all her life to make things easy for others. She now can collect her rewards.
Freida worked for a time at the Crystal Laundry and volunteered at Sacred Heart Hospital in the Hospice Unit.
She attended Trinity United Methodist Church in Cumberland.
Surviving are her nieces, whom she thought of as her daughters, Becci Hartsock-Feaster and husband Randy and Amy Jo Stout and husband Michael; Amy’s children Gina, Brandon, and David Franciosi, who faithfully visited her over the years; her nephews, Ed Hartsock and his family, Craig Hartsock and family, and two sisters-in-law, Alice and Ruth Hartsock.
Aunt Freida was loved by everyone that met her. Kind and giving to a fault, she spread her love everywhere she went.
The family would like to thank Cumberland Healthcare Center for the total love and compassion they have shown Aunt Freida over the years. She loved each and every sweet soul there.
Aunt Freidy Pearl has crossed over and taken the hand of God. We will miss our sweet aunt like no other; she was our life, our heart, and our love.
The Upchurch Funeral Home, P.A., is handling the private arrangements.
