Memorable Manitobans: Freda Josephine Sheridan (1913-1998)

War bride.

Born at London, England on 31 January 1913, she lived at Kent and Tunbridge Wells during the Second World War before emigrating to Canada. She worked at the Seven Oaks Hospital prior to her marriage to Bill Sheridan, a Canadian soldier she had met while he was stationed in England. They were married on 6 August 1942 at Bexhill, England. In 1945 she came to Canada alone with her son while her husband was still posted overseas. They lived with her inlaws at Hamiota for four months. She then lived independently with her son, until her husband returned from overseas. She died at Brandon on 23 April 1998 and was buried in Brandon Cemetery.
