Nancy C. (Scott) Freed, 87, passed away Monday, February 27, 2023. She was born May 3, 1935 in Barberton, Ohio and was a graduate of Barberton High School, Class of 1953. Nancy was preceded in death by her first husband, William; father and mother, Robert and Hazel (Rohler) Scott; seven brothers and former spouse, Murl Freed. She is survived by her five children; Tyler (Beth) Konich, Terry (Joe) Asher, Travis (Cat) Freed, Tristan (Robert) Nelson and Troy (Regina) Freed. In addition, 19 grandchildren; 23 great grandchildren, she had 1 great great grandchild and two more great grandchildren on the way. Also survived by her are her brothers, Ronald, Tracy and Lesley and sister-in-law, Janis. Our mother lost her brother Lee at an early age, then not long after lost her mother at the tender age of 13. After such devastation she managed to help take care of her younger brothers while going to school. While in school, her popularity and vibrant spirit had always shown through. She was voted “Prettiest Smile” before graduating. After graduation she married her high school sweetheart, William Konich. With him she had two children, Tyler and Terry. While serving in the Air Force in Okinawa, Japan our father was fatally wounded in a car accident on his way to an early morning mission. Devastated, our mother flew home with us (2 and 3 years old) to heal and try to begin a new life. She met her second husband, Murl Freed and eventually married him and had three children, Travis, Tristan and Troy. Our mother was a selfless, warm, humble, beautiful person inside and out all of her life. After raising all of her children, she was hired by Rolling Acres Mall to work in the customer service booth. You may have seen her beautiful smile if you ever happened by. She worked there for years and decided to retire only to then volunteer at Barberton Citizens Hospital. She was an avid gardener, a master organizer and last but not least loved all of her children, grandchildren, great grandchildren and great great grandchild with all of her heart and she never missed a birthday. She has been a lifetime resident of Barberton and always contributed to the community and she especially loved the mum festival. She will be sorely missed by countless family and friends and will be forever loved and missed by all of us. Our family and this world have lost one of its brightest lights. We will never be the same, but her legacy will live on through all of us and we will always strive to make her proud until we meet her once again in heaven. We will miss her so much and we love you so much mom. Please join us for a “Celebration of Her Life” on Thursday, March 23, 2023 from 6 to 9 p.m. at the Diamond Match Hall, 8 Fourth Street, N.W., Barberton, Ohio 44203.
