Daisy Freeman Obituary

Daisy L. Freeman, 100, of Danbury, was called home to be with her Lord and Savior on Sunday evening, October 1, 2023.

Mother Freeman was born in LeFlore, Mississippi, September 22, 1923, last surviving daughter of Judge and Ida (McDowell) House.

With her family, they relocated to the state of Missouri settling in New Madrid Township. She attended New Madrid schools and graduated from New Madrid High School and moved to Danbury in 1942.

Mother Freeman was a wife and homemaker.

After twice being unlucky in love, she found the love of her life with 3rd husband George Freeman.

She worked in multiple professions including production of war munitions during WWII, in a hat factory and as a cook, among other jobs.

She was active in the community, especially at the Danbury Towers, and life of her church, New Bethel Church of God in Christ of Danbury, as a faithful member of the Church Mother Board and Advisor to the Home and Foreign Mission department.

Mother Freeman was a woman ahead of her time embodying the term independent woman, long before it was a thing. She enjoyed dressing fashionable in the latest styles, especially with hats for church; reminiscing and recounting family history; and sharing interesting stories and fascinating occurrences.

Most especially, she enjoyed serving her God and through Him extended His love, and her own, to her family, extended family, church family and friends.

Remaining to cherish her blessed memory are her 5 nieces, Ida L. Best, Emma L. Bush Boudreaux, Micki L. Fuller, Susan Marie Bush Harris and Lucille Blackmon; 2 nephews, Gary Tyler and Mark Tyler; and a host of great, great-great and great-great-great nieces and nephews, as well as friends and church family too numerous to name.

In addition to her parents and husbands, she was predeceased by all of her siblings: Patsy Armstrong, Bessie Mae Whitmore, Mamie L. Bush, Johnny House and Geneva Tyler.

A Home Going Service will take place on Friday, October 6, 2023 at 11 am in the New Bethel Church of God in Christ, 26 Liberty St., Danbury with Elder Henry N. White, Sr. officiating.

Interment will follow in Wooster Cemetery, Danbury.

The family will receive friends at New Bethel Church on Friday from 10 am to 11 am.

Repast will follow internment at the church.

Contributions in Mother Freeman's memory and honor may be made to the Deacon Thelbert Harris, Jr. Scholarship Fund, C/O New Bethel Church.
