EAST HERKIMER – Freida Dinah Hill, age 75, of Downey Ave., in East Herkimer, passed away on Tuesday morning, May 7, 2024, at Little Falls Hospital.

She was born on July 5, 1948, in New York City. She was the daughter of the late James and Evelyn (Graham) Hill.

Freida enjoyed being a part of things, helping out at home and in her classroom, participating in activities and especially talking to people and meeting new people. If you met her once, you were her friend. She enjoyed listening to music, dancing, collecting fire trucks, shopping for clothes and going out to eat (Popeye’s was a favorite). She especially loved special days, like her Birthday and Christmas.

Freida loved being the center of attention. She loved having her photo taken and was the face of Arc Herkimer on many occasions on Facebook, in ads, articles about Arc Herkimer and even a commercial. Freida had a smile and a laugh that could be both heartfelt and mischievous at the same time. She knew how to work people to get the result she wanted and she was very good at it (just ask any staff that worked with her at Arc Herkimer). She was always greatly loved, even when she was a bit sassy and she touched the lives and the hearts, of all who knew her. Freida will be sadly missed, but always remembered with a smile.

Freida is survived by her brother, Ron Hill; her loving ARC Herkimer family; especially her loved ones at her Downey Ave. home, in East Herkimer, her previous home of many years, on Hinman Rd., in Mohawk, her Day Program at S. Washington St., in Herkimer and her special family on the Guardianship Committee.

A Celebration of Freida’s Life will be held at the Enea Family Funeral Home, at 220 North Washington Street, Herkimer, New York, on Thursday, May 16, 2024, with a calling hour from 9:30 a.m. until 10:30 a.m., and a Service of Remembrance to follow at 10:30am. Burial at Oak Hill Cemetery, in Herkimer, will follow.

Freida’s funeral arrangements have been entrusted to Enea, Ciaccia & Applegate Funeral Directors (315-866-1011).
