Frieda was born Saturday, April 28, 1923 in Germany the daughter of the late Emil and Wanda (Neubauer) Kelm. Frieda came with her family to America when she was only six weeks old. The family started out in St. Joseph. Their first home was below the bluff in St. Joe where many other immigrants lived and were called sand rabbits. Frieda met her husband, Bob Hyerdall while working at the movie theatre on State Street in St. Joe when she was 19 years old. They were married in 1945. Hannah Hyerdall, Bob’s mother, owned Hyerdall’s Café in Bridgman and Frieda went to work there as a waitress. For 20 years Frieda and Bob owned the Sandwitch Drive-In. Their daughter Linda was born in 1952. Bob died in 1987. Frieda’s granddaughter, Hannah, came along in 1988 and was the apple of Frieda’s eye. She gave Hannah that love only a grandmother could give and was able to attend Hannah’s wedding in May of 2017. During her later years, Frieda lived at West Woods of Bridgman. Her nurses and aides would tell Linda how funny she was when she told them jokes and stories. Frieda’s faith in Jesus was strong, and she remained positive to the end and had beautiful eyes. 
Frieda is survived by: her daughter: Linda (Gary) Weber and her granddaughter: Hannah E. (Eric) Myers. 
Frieda is also preceded in death by her siblings: Otto Kelm, Tillie Moffitt, Alfred Kelm, Arnold Kelm, and Nancy Brenner.
