Are joining together with me to make this day a most joyous one. For the friend who is dearest to me. Yes, she is dearest to me by far. She has devoted her life to my teaching, and I am trying to live up to this wonderful star. But in vain am I reaching. I'm speaking of mother and asking God's blessing. On her whom I love so true, let each daughter and son make this pledge as one. And life will be richer for you."

- The words "fire fire!" rang through the Westly College for girls. Anne Dillon and Ada Kohlman, roommates, jumped quickly from their beds. "The first fire we have had since the college was built," whispered Anne and Ada nodded in assent. Footsteps rushing down the corridor made the girls hustle and leave their rooms. ...

My first job was in Woolworth's, Journal Square. [It] lasted 2 days at Christmas time. people were demanding and I was always sensitive in those days. [I] worked for my father, then a real job with Mackel Service, Journal Square. Later Avon [for] 16 years.

Memories about Naida Muriel Freudenberg
- Mark Andrew Dahl (1970) wrote on November 3, 2004: " My grandfather and my grandmother (Naida Muriel Freudenberg) were famous in the family for playing card games and viewing slide shows. He was quite the photographer and had an extensive slide library of the family which is now in possession of his three daughters. Grandpa had a heart attack at my cousin Tracey Schwendels wedding. He had been taking care of my Grandmother who suffered from Alzheimers. Grandma (Naida) was a quiet woman who had a terrific laugh and the sweetest smile. When I was younger, I never saw her out of a tea length skirt, two inch heels, hair painstakingly rolled curled set and sprayed. Her house in NJ was a showroom for all the travels she and Grandfather went on. She would rotate all the decorations in the house."
