Obituary: Freya McGrath

As received from the O’Neill-Dennis Funeral Home:

Freya McGrath, 89, passed away peacefully into the presence of the Lord on Monday, November 29, 2021 at Friends Care Community in Yellow Springs, Ohio. She was born on January 23, 1932 in Eberbach, Germany to Heinrich and Frieda Kappes. She was the eldest of 10 children.

Freya served faithfully alongside her husband in the USAF while raising six children. An Immigrant from Germany, she was most proud of becoming a US citizen and that her sons and sons-in-law served in the military.

Freya is preceded in death by her parents, five siblings, her loving husband, Robert McGrath, and two daughters, Linda Greely and Claudia McGrath. She is survived by her four children, Elizabeth (Barry) Dayhoff, Louis (Connie) McGrath, Erin (Richard) Kangas, and Robert (Tammy) McGrath, 16 grandchildren, 29 great grandchildren, and 4 great great grandsons.

Freya always had a smile and her laughter was contagious. She was a delight to all who provided for her care. A special thanks to the many caregivers and staff at Friends Care Community.

A family gathering is planned for early October in Calumet per her final wishes. The O’Neill-Dennis Funeral Home of Hancock is in charge of the arrangements. To leave online condolences, please go to www.oneilldennisfh.com.

Oma, we will miss you!
