Freda (nee Bartram) was born in Milk River on April 28, 1922 to Frederick and Kate Bartram. As a young woman she joined the Women¹s Division of the RCAF and met the love of her life, Jack Kinniburgh. They were married on July 27, 1945. Purple Springs became their home where they raised their five children and entertained their many friends. You could always get a cup of coffee there and were welcome to stay for supper.
Music was a big part of Freda¹s life. Her beautiful voice entertained many people over the years. She was a part of the Taber Community Band and then went on to sing with ³The Old Guys², singing all the songs she loved so dearly.
If friends so desire, memorial tribute¹s in Freda¹s name may be made directly to the charity of one¹s personal choosing.

Sometimes it was a long drive but the wonderful times Roy, Joyce, David, Phillip, and Colleen had at the farm was very special. As a young boy growing up it was a magical plan with airplanes, livestock, farm machinery to drive and that wonderful buttermilk gravy. Aunt Freda was a special lady who made it all possible. RIP Aunty. Dave Bartram

It was a sorrow to hear Freda had passed, I knew I met her as child, and we were both in wheelchairs when I met here at the Kinniburgh reunion this last summer. I am sorry for your lost, as my dad Jim Rutherford ids.
