Freda Inez Rider was born on February 11, 1922 and departed this life on November 22, 2017. She was the daughter of Edgar and Vida Kesler and grew up in a small lumber town of Nallen, West Virginia. It was there that she met and eventually married her husband of sixty five years, Denny Rider. Freda was preceded in death by her parents, husband Denny, daughter Marcia Casto, and sisters Helen McGraw and Eileen Jones.

Freda is survived by her son, Ed or “Eddie” as she called him and wife Libby, and three grandchildren, Matt Rider and wife Nikie of Winfield, Molly Rider of Cross Lanes, and Kristi Casto Moore of Charlotte, North Carolina. Also there are five great grandchildren, Dakota, Jaedyn, Zane, Jacob, and Kyle.

She loved attending Perrow Presbyterian Church, where she was a member for over sixty years, and especially enjoyed her senior Sunday school class. She was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, and friend to all who knew her, but above all she was a Christian. She will be sadly missed but comfort is taken in the fact that she is in heaven where she longed to be with loved ones who have gone before her. We take heart knowing we will see her again.

Services will be Tuesday, November 28th, 2017 at 2:00 PM at Tyler Mountain Funeral Home, 5233 Rocky Fork Rd., Cross Lanes, WV 25313 with The Rev. Mark Adessa officiating. Visitation will be from 1:00 PM until service time on Tuesday. Interment will follow in Tyler Mountain Memory Gardens. In lieu of flowers please make donations to the Perrow Presbyterian Church in her honor. Online condolences may be made by visiting
