Grace Hadden Friewald (Bebbe), 90, of Pawtucket, RI, passed away on February 15, 2022, after a short illness. She is survived by her sisters, Barbara Hadden of Greenport, NY and Betsy Hann of Raleigh, NC, her cousin Mary Lansing of Florida, six nieces, several grandnieces and great-grandnieces. She was preceded in death by her husband, Joe Friewald, her sister Mary Lay Delaney and cousin John Faulkner. Grace enjoyed her family. She never missed the annual, “Christmas in August” at her sister Barbara's house. She cruised the ocean with her sister Betsy and had regular Sunday dinners with her cousin John. She and her father enjoyed bowling together; both bowled well into their eighties. Grace was a proud graduate of the Nursing Program at Pembroke College in Brown University, after which she worked a lifetime at the Women & Infants Hospital in Providence, RI. She specialized in neonatal nursing, earning respect and regard from all her colleagues. Grace traveled the world with her husband. They shared a passion for European tours, particularly the Scandinavian countries. Grace was an avid Boston Red Sox fan. She followed the Red Sox minor leagues, attending many Pawtucket Red Sox games. She gardened and was famous for her signature chili sauce and bundt-sized coffee cake. She delighted in nature and wildlife, so it would serve her memory well to donate to two of her favorite charities, the Sierra Club and World Wild Life Fund. Close to her heart however, was the Rhode Island’s Meals on Wheels program where she worked as volunteer driver. A Graveside Service will be held Friday, April 29, 2022 at 12:30 PM in the Rhode Island Veterans Memorial Cemetery, 301 S. County Trail, Exeter, RI. Please meet at the administrative building for 12:00 p.m. to be lined up for the procession.
