Fredine's Baptist faith was important to her. She will be remembered for her "adventurous spirit" which included motorcycle riding, cattle driving and even drag racing! Additionally, Fredine had a sense of adventure which included camping, hunting, and fishing. She was always excited to follow her husband to various assignments in the Oil Fields.
