Frieda was born in Canton on Feb. 7, 1928, to Mabel Barker Bessey and Ralph Alden Bessey. Her sister, Shirley Bessey Lyons, predeceased her in 1995.

Frieda graduated from Canton High School in 1946 and married Victor S. Davis on Aug. 16, 1946. Victor predeceased her in 2008.

Frieda worked in Canton after her marriage and enjoyed spending time with her family at Popham Beach and The Grove on Canton Lake with many day trips around Maine and New Hampshire.

She worked for many years at Hannaford Brothers in Rumford. She and Victor moved to Auburn in 1994.

Our family will always cherish Mom’s sense of humor.
