Freda Lucille Flenniken Stohrer

Screen Shot 2014-05-06 at 12.10.54 PMFreda Lucille Flenniken Stohrer passed away peacefully on May 3, 2014, with both of her daughters at her side. Freda was born in Denver to Fred and Lucille Flenniken on Dec. 10, 1931.

After a traveling childhood during the Great Depression she was raised in the Panama Canal Zone. She attended Jacksonville State University, then returned to the Canal Zone to marry and raise her two children and two stepchildren. While in the Canal Zone she worked as an English teacher at Cristobal High School and Canal Zone College, sang in the Sweet Adelines Crossroads chorus and was in a first-place winning quartet, the Pan Canettes.

In 1969 she relocated to Chapel Hill, NC where she worked for and obtained her Ph.D. in English. She then embarked on a second career as a college professor and technical writing professor, retiring from the Armed Forces Institute of Technology in 1999. After retiring from AFIT, and traveling to work in Oman, she relocated to Rogers, Arkansas, to be near her sister and family, then to Davis, CA to be near her daughter. She was a lifelong teacher, and continued to teach until the end, at Northwest Arkansas Community College and then tutoring her caregiver, Nataly for her college level classes. She was a very active member of her church wherever she lived, last attending the Episcopal Church of St. Martin in Davis, California.

Freda is survived by her daughters Carol Grench (Paul) of Davis and Anne Stohrer (Will Ellis) of Morrisville, Vermont; stepchildren Linda Humphrey of Franklin, Tennessee, and Don Stohrer (Kathy) of Knoxville, Tennessee. She is also survived by her four beautiful grandchildren.

In lieu of flowers, please send memorial contributions to Northwest Arkansas Community College Foundation general scholarship fund, 1 College Drive, Bentonville, AR 72712 or to the charity of your choice.
