sissonFreda L. Sisson, 94, Logansport, passed away at 3:15 a.m. Friday, May 27, 2016, in Chase Center.

Born November 1, 1921, in Clay Township, Cass County, she was the daughter of the late Homer Cecil and Ethel Marie (Louthain) Angle.

On May 9, 1943, in Logansport, she was married to James Marion Sisson. He preceded her in death March 17, 2000.

A 1939 graduate of Twelve Mile High School, Freda went on to work at the Cass County Farm Bureau as assistant manager. From 1957-1985, she served as chief of accounts and finance at the Grissom Air Force Base. From 1982-1988, she was the fiscal manager of Area V.

A member of the New Life Alliance Church, Freda enjoyed the fellowship of the church women’s group. She had belonged to the former Bethel Methodist Church while her children were young.  Freda was also active at the Area V Senior Citizens Center, where she made many friends over the years. She was an avid bowler and was proud to win a silver medal at the Senior Olympics.

Freda loved sports. She was a big fan and supporter of both Larry Bird and Bobby Knight and corresponded with them. She also met Ted Williams, who autographed a photo for her. She was the biggest fan, though, of her children and grandchildren and loved following their activities.

She was preceded in death by three brothers: Arthur Eugene “Gene” Angle, Richard Keith Angle and Melvin Victor Angle; and one sister Pheriba Irene Angle.
