Frieda Rosa Stoll Hummel
March 16, 1923 ~ March 2, 2022
Frieda Rosa Stoll Hummel, 98, passed away on March 2, 2022. At a grand age of 98 comes great impact. Just 14 days shy of her 99th Birthday, we celebrate Frieda’s long life as we announce her passing.
Frieda was born on March 16, 1923 in Wolfschlugen, Germany. Frieda married the love of her life, Roland Martin Hummel on May 27, 1950. Frieda lived through war torn Germany, The Great Depression, a migration to the United States in 1957, and tremendous losses of family and friends, yet she flourished because she has been able to accept and recover from situations she could not change. Frieda resided in South Ogden and was a member of the Elim Lutheran Church.
A legacy of joy, kindness, generosity, and laughter, she is our lasting memory; from her English with a German brogue of speaking that we loved to listen to, to her style and skill in accessorizing even the most casual attire. Her scarves and lapel pins were her trademark. A style she shared with many when she presented them with gifts.
Frieda worked at Coleman knitting mills for 15 years. She enjoyed knitting, a skill she still enjoyed in her last days. Frieda made shawls to welcome our babies, and booties all around at Christmastime. She was also an excellent cook and was always making delicious German meals for her family. She enjoyed having sleepovers with her two grandchildren, Jamie and Ryan. Frieda loved to travel with her husband Roland. They made several trips back to Europe visiting family members. She loved music and dancing. Frieda loved to shop and was always looking for a bargain. She shared this passion with her granddaughter, Jamie.
Frieda is survived by her loving son, Robert John Hummel and daughter in law, Tina Hummel; Two grandchildren, Jamie (Richard) Empey and Ryan Hummel; and a great grandson, Kristian Empey; and many nieces and nephews. Frieda was preceded in death by her loving husband, Roland Martin Hummel, son, Reiner Hummel, her parents, Gotthielf Christian Stoll and Rosine Rauscher Stoll; brothers, Albert and Ernst, sister Emilie (Stoll) Strompf; sister and brother in law, Anna (Stoll) and Rand Willie; sister in law, Inge (Heinz) Lang.
The family will be forever grateful to the staff at The Auberge Assisted Living and Bristol Hospice for the loving care they provided to Frieda. In addition, the family is grateful for the comfort Pastor Bruce provided to Frieda and her family.
The family would also like to thank Anna Valdez-Willie, for all her help and support in helping us to create a loving tribute to her Aunt Frieda.
