October 23, 1933 - November 16, 2021
Dorothy Ann (Ferguson) Freydberg was born at home to Raymond and Mildred
Ferguson on October 23, 1933, in Grand Prairie, Texas. Dotty passed away
peacefully on November 16, 2021, in Carrollton, Texas of natural causes.
She was married to her husband Bill Sr. for 52 years until his passing in 2009. She
was the proud mother of three children, eight grandchildren, and three greatgrandchildren. Left to carry on her fun-loving legacy are her children Bill
Freydberg, Jr (Eileen), Jenny Woelffer (Gale), Dixie Pennington (Brian).
Grandchildren: Cam Aukeman (Aja), Tanner Freydberg, Tess Freydberg (Drew),
Hannelore Joost (Patrick), Noelle Pennington, Konrad Woelffer, Quinn Woelffer,
Cara Woelffer. Great grandchildren: Liesel Joost, Kurt Joost, and Hayes Aukeman.
Dotty was very proud of being a lifelong Texan attending Obadiah Knight
Elementary school then North Dallas High School, graduating with honors in 1951
as a National Honor Society member. After her marriage to Bill, Sr in 1957 she
lived in the Brookhaven Country Club area for 48 years. During these years she
was active in Farmers Brach PTA at the schools her children attended. She was
room mother every year for her children. For her willingness to be available and
never say “no” for any PTA job, she was awarded a Texas Life Membership. She
was proud both of her daughters received the same award. She was also active in
St. Paul Lutheran Church and the Farmers Branch Woman’s Club who awarded
her a life membership in 2012. Dotty enjoyed the many activities in Woman’s Club
and her lifelong Bunco group which stared in 1966 and continued until her move
to assisted living in early 2020. When not spending time with her extended family
and lifelong friends, she loved a good salty, rimmed margarita while playing slots
in Vegas or Ruidoso. Always a diehard Dallas Cowboy fan she was enjoying the
exciting 2021 season. Her other interests included reading, watching soaps,
games shows and following the latest celebrity news and movies.
Anyone who knew Dotty would hope that when she entered the “promised land”
she would be greeted by her loved ones and Elvis.
The family will have a private celebration of life. Memorial contributions in
Dotty’s honor can be made to Caring Pathways of Carrollton 2150 N. Josey Lane
