Frieda Lenore Vincent, 89, passed away at her home in San Angelo on June 28 th , 2016. She joins her

husband Shearrel, and son Jay, who preceded her in death. Frieda was the youngest child and only

daughter of Harrison and Martha Elizabeth (Helems) Williams. She was born November 7, 1926 in

Cedar Rapids, Iowa. Her childhood and the influence of her parents and church made her the strong,

kind woman so many knew and loved. Frieda married Shearrel in Fayetville, Arkansas in 1951 and they

enjoyed 61 years of marriage until Shearrel’s death. They moved to Van Horn in 1958 and opened

Vincent Drug, which they ran together until 1990. After losing Jay, Frieda went to cosmetology school

and became a facialist. She enjoyed running Frieda’s; it was an outlet for her, and many ladies

enjoyed the wonderful facials they received, and also the other activities, like the exercise classes and

the day of beauty. She was an active member of the First Baptist Church in Van Horn and a leader of

Sunday school classes for many years. Frieda’s life work included her unwavering faith in God,

faithfulness and love to her husband and family, and charity and friendliness to her community. She is

survived by her daughter Stephanie Vincent of San Angelo, her granddaughter Sheryl Uhland and two

great grandchildren, Peyton and Holden of Austin, a special cousin Florene Huffman of Albuquerque,

and several nieces and nephews. A special thank you for years of help and friendship to a very special

friend who has become like a family member, Jafria Hunter. The family would also like to thank

Hospice of San Angelo, and especially Shirley, Debbie, and Veronica, for all their love, kindness, and

excellent care.

A celebration of life will be held in the fellowship hall of First Baptist Church in Van Horn, Texas on July

23 at 12 p.m. All are welcome to join the family.
