Freda Eselgroth Stewart
(January 3, 1917 - February 25, 2010)
Freda Eselgroth Stewart, 93, of Lyndon, Ohio, passed from this life into heaven Thursday, February 25, 2010 at Riverside Hospital, Columbus, Ohio following a brief illness.
Freda was born to John and Cora (Giffin) Eselgroth on January 3, 1917, on a farm near Chillicothe, Ohio. Freda was one of five children, Margaret Tootle, Helen Dailey, Gladys Detty, and Bernard Eselgroth, all now deceased.
Freda married the love of her life, William Stickley Stewart, on June 1, 1943, and had four children, Anna Marie Stewart, Rosemary (Louis) Stewart Oliver, Bruce A. (Lintina) Stewart and Joe B. (Debbi) Stewart. Freda’s grandchildren are Alicia Nenadal, Brian (Letanya) Stewart, William Grant Oliver, Tyler Stewart, and Megan Stewart; two great-grandchildren, Madison Nenedal and Salem Stewart; step-grandchildren Vanessa Ford, Jason Woolums, Danielle Ritchey, and Blair Oglesby, and step-great-granddaughter Trace Ford.
Mrs. Stewart was a member of the First Presbyterian Church in Greenfield, Ohio for nearly 60 years, and was a member of many of the church’s women’s groups. She was honored for her lifetime of service by the Presbyterian Women’s Association. She was an accomplished seamstress and quilter who won numerous awards at local, regional, and state quilting competitions for her entirely hand-made quilts. Freda was a fulltime mother, homemaker, and seamstress until her children were grown, then worked as a nurse’s aide in the Greenfield Municipal Hospital. Freda served as advisor to the Buckskin Stitchers and Mixers 4-H Club for many years and was a member of the Ross County Quilter’s Guild.
Before her husband William’s passing in 1981, the couple enjoyed numerous driving vacations throughout the United States and Canada, visiting family, National Parks, and both oceans. They first met at the general store and post office in Lyndon, where William worked at the time. They later resided in Lyndon, where Freda continued to live independently until her passing, and enjoyed watching hummingbirds, the Cincinnati Reds and the Ohio State Buckeyes.
Funeral will be 10 a.m. Tuesday. March 2 at the Murray-Fettro Funeral Home in Greenfield with Rev. Clint Tolbert officiating, followed by burial at South Salem Cemetery.
Friends may call at the funeral home Monday, March 1 from 4:30 to 8:30 p.m.

A bit more eclectic posting including things I see everyday and some posted for preservation. The ring is the definitive copy; the Kaleidoscopic images I share to demonstrate that with a bit of experimentation many camera attachable such devices can be built. But than anything the post targets Photoshop as a tool. "The Distortion" demonstrates some of the more creative applications; the before and after images of The Monarch Butterfly provides a totally justified correction and repair of a natural subject. The changes are no more than could be obtained in an older traditional wet chemistry darkroom and do not constitute a corruption of what nature has to offer. Likewise the nude images has been simply tinted from a true black and white image for this presentation.
