Frieda Mae Dearth
Frieda Mae Dearth, age 92, went to heaven March 23, 2020, and is with the Lord now. She was born August 13, 1927, in Clinton, Iowa, the daughter of Albert and Linnie (McCallister) Prusia. Frieda was joined in marriage to Albert Junior Dearth until his death at age 59.
Arrangements and cremation are under the direction of Cremations of the Ozarks.
Before moving to Branson, Frieda worked at General Electric in Illinois. She then lived in Branson for more than 40 years, and many of those years enjoyed working as a food server. Frieda was most passionate about reading her Bible, praying, loving her family, her cats, and many friends. Though she is greatly missed by all who knew and loved her, we know she is at peace in heaven.
Frieda is preceded in death by her parents; husband, Albert Junior Dearth; four brothers and one sister; granddaughter, Sheila Smith; and her loving companion of 27 years, David Bungard.
She is survived by two sons, Albert Dearth of Lead Hill, Arkansas, and Jerry (Debbie) Dearth of Kansas City, Kansas; four daughters: Mary Ann Dearth of Branson, Missouri, Connie (Chris) Murphy of Erie, Illinois, Wendy (Bruce) Aplin of Fort Walton Beach, Florida, and Toni (Randy) Kilgore of North Liberty, Iowa; 21 grandchildren; fifty great-grandchildren; and ten great-great-grandchildren.
Frieda will be inurned with her husband at 1:00 p.m., Friday, May 22, 2020, in the Springfield National Cemetery, 1702 E. Seminole Street, Springfield, Missouri. To leave an online condolence, please visit www.cremationsoftheozarks.com.
