Frieda M. Lyons
Frieda M. Lyons, 96 years of age, of Beatrice received her wings early Tuesday morning, Jan. 23, 2018, at the Beatrice Community Hospital. She was born on June 7, 1921 near Crab Orchard to Herman and Anna (Wehmer) Weyers and graduated from Crab Orchard High School in 1939. Frieda and Norval Lyons were married on March 1, 1941 in Marysville, Kan. and moved to Beatrice in 1946. She had been a housekeeper over the years for many people in Beatrice. Frieda enjoyed visiting with friends, cooking, her dogs and listening to and calling into the "Birthday Line" on KWBE radio. She will be sorely missed by her family and friends.
Survivors include several nieces and nephews, including Jennifer Spady and husband, Chris, Connie Spady and husband, Dave, and Shirley Wolken and husband, LaVern, all of Beatrice; as well as several great- and great-great-nieces and nephews. Frieda was preceded in death by her parents; her husband, Norval Lyons (2003); her sisters, Marie Rulla and Erna Sorenson; her brothers, Herbert, Emil and Gustav Weyers; and her brother-in-law, Arlis Lyons.
It was Frieda's wishes to be cremated and to have no visitation or public services, and that her ashes be buried at the Crab Orchard Cemetery at a later date. Sign Frieda's online guestbook at www.ghchapel.com.
These services have been entrusted to the Griffiths-Hovendick Chapel in Beatrice.
