Frances was born on January 30, 1921, in Dubuque, Iowa, the daughter of Frank and Elizabeth (Errthum) Freiburger. She married Vincent J. Hendricks on October 3, 1944, in Dubuque.
A devoted wife, mother, grandmother and homemaker, Frances loved spending time with her family. Her house was always a home where she shared her wisdom, creating lasting heartfelt memories and traditions. She made countless quilts in her lifetime of which many were donated for charitable purposes. She enjoyed sewing, gardening, crafting and needlepoint. Cooking and baking were both interests she shared with her family and she always had time for a good card game. After her retirement from the Southwestern School system as head cook, she donated her time to St. Joseph School where she helped as a teacher’s aide. She loved giving her time and working with the students and teachers. She volunteered for 20 years before fully retiring. She also served as a member of the Daughters of the American Revolution. Her final days were spent surrounded by the company of close family members whose lives she had touched in cherished ways.
Those left to treasure her memory are two daughters, Joyce (Bill) Wood, of Hazel Green, and Mary Kay (Chuck) Deery, of Brodhead; two sons, Paul (Carol) Hendricks, of Cuba City, and Mark (Adele) Hendricks, of Hazel Green; three sisters, Irma Massey, of Dubuque, IA, Carol (Dan) McDermott, of Cuba City, and Lillian (Wilmer) Averkamp, of East Dubuque, IL; a brother, Larry (Ellen) Freiburger, of East Dubuque, IL; ten grandchildren, Sheila (Joe) Spitza, Shelley Swenson, Sarah (Jamie) White, Melissa Hendricks, Kim (Wayne) Wagner, Lisa (Shawn) Polnow, Stacy (Shane) Stennes, Tim (fiancé Holly) Hendricks, Andrew (Amy) Hendricks, and Brian (JoAnna) Deery; twenty one great-grandchildren, and two great-great-grandchildren.
She was preceded in death by her husband, Vincent; her parents, Frank and Elizabeth Freiburger; four brothers, Elmer Freiburger, Franklin Freiburger, Edward Freiburger, and Henry Freiburger; three sisters, Stella Majerus, Florence Gerhard, and Viola Farrey; three brothers-in-law, LaVerne Hendricks, Omer Hendricks, and Joseph Hendricks; three sisters-in-law, Basilla Schonhoff, Isabella Schmeider, and Kathleen Munyon; and her close friend Dorothy Kuhl, among many others.
Our hearts are filled with memories which we gathered through the years. All the happy times we shared are treasured souvenirs.
