Mrs. Delores “Dee” M. Wright Frecker, born in New Lexington, Ohio, and formerly of Newark, Ohio, had lived in Swainsboro for the past 44 years. She was born March 14, 1931 to Rathbone Monroe and Jane Maxwell French Wright. She was a member of Hawhammock Baptist Church, where she taught Sunday School for many years. During Upward seasons at Hawhammock, you could always count on “Mr. Bob” and “Mrs. Dee” every Saturday to make sure that all coaches and volunteers were fed and not in need of anything. She was an active member of the Emanual Medical Center Volunteers, a past member of the board of Classic Buffing and Polishing, a member of Dayspring Emmaus Community, and a member of the Swainsboro Country Club for many years. Mrs. Frecker loved her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She also enjoyed quilting, knitting, crocheting, and golfing. During her spare time, she always had either some type of needles or a golf club in her hand. You could always count on her to be a prayer warrior for any need. She was preceded in death by her parents; her husband, Robert (Bob) H. Frecker; a son, David L. Spencer; two brothers, John and Richard Wright; and a sister, Bonnie McWherter.
