Mildred Lois Baker Fredrickson, age 96, went to be with our Lord early in the morning of January 2, 2018. She passed away at Autumn Leaves Alzheimer's facility in Georgetown, Texas where she had been a resident for the past eighteen months.

Mildred was the fourth child to join the Baker family at the Baker homestead about six miles east of Andice, Texas. She grew up surrounded by family and close friends in rural Williamson County. She lived next to her grandfather who was a minister and Elder of the Primitive Baptist Church. She and her sisters enjoyed sitting on the fence watching people come and be married in front of her grandfather's home. She attended Matsler Height School where she would meet her husband to be Walter Murray Fredrickson. They would enjoy 48 years of marriage. As Matsler Height did not have a high school, Mildred finished school at Georgetown High School where she was on the tennis team. She lived in Rosebud, Amarillo, Temple, Austin, and Lake LBJ. In each location she took opportunity to learn new skills. She developed a passion for ceramics and ultimately became excellent at making ceramic dolls and would make clothes for them just as she made clothes for her granddaughters and great granddaughters.

She was active in the First Methodist Church of Temple, Texas, Crestview Methodist in Austin, Texas and the Kingsland Community Christian Church. She was part of the development of the Kingsland Senior Center.

She was predeceased by her parents, Ruby Teague Baker and Arthur Baker, her brothers William Baker and Hebert Baker, her sister Opal Stroud, and her husband Walter Murray Fredrickson.

She is survived by her daughter, Ann Earnhart of McMahan, Texas; son, Walter Barry Fredrickson and wife Darlene of Georgetown, Texas; her sister, Nelda Faye Stone of California; grandchildren, Lucky Fitzgerald of Dallas, Texas, Linda Earnhart of McMahan, Texas, Tracy and Terry Tucker of Georgetown, Texas, Shelly Hesson of Georgetown, Texas, Renea and Steven Cady of McMahan, Texas, Kelly Glenn and Stephanie Fredrickson of Jonah, Texas, Jennifer Fredrickson of Boulder, Colorado; and seventeen great grandchildren and two great-great grandchildren.

We are extremely grateful to all the staff at Autumn Leaves for their constant and excellent care and for Encompass Hospice.
