Mary Freedle Moretz, 82, of Jefferson, N.C., passed away on Wednesday, January 22, 2020.

She is preceded in death by her parents, Walter Lee Freedle and Violet Mae Sink; four brothers; six sisters; and one grandchild.

Mary was a retired textile worker having retired from Celanese in Salisbury, N.C. Mary was a wonderful mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. She was a homemaker and crafter who made sure that no one ever went away hungry. She never knew a stranger and welcomed everyone into her home. Being a caring and giving person, she donated her body to science so that future doctors could study and learn.

A Memorial Service will be held on April 4, 2020, 2:00 pm, at her home, to celebrate Mary’s life with family and friends.
