Melody Ann Freriks

October 23, 1963 — March 23, 2024


Melody Ann Freriks departed this life unexpectedly on March 23, 2024, at her home in Sheboygan. She was born on October 23, 1963, to Miles and Donna (Raether) Wilson in West Bend, Wisconsin.  After completing her formal training for pharmacy technician through Lakeshore Technical College, she married the love of her life, Scott Freriks, on April 19, 1986. Together they raised their children Zachary and Allison in Sheboygan.  

Melody will always be remembered for her witty sense of humor, her thoughtfulness, her genuine love for her family. Her family will never forget her “German Stubbornness” and her tag line when asked to do something, “Just give me 2.5 seconds!”  She could cook just about anything, and make it taste amazing.  She was known for her outgoing personality, and her ability to always make her family and friends smile.  She was very humbled and proud of reaching her ten-year sobriety anniversary just last October 23, 2023.  How fitting that this important achievement took place on her birthday.  Above all, she was devoted to her family, and her two beautiful cats Noah and Midnight, who “just knew” when she needed a cuddle.

Melody is survived by her husband of thirty eight years Scott, her children Zachary (Jasminn) Freriks and Allison (Josh Campo) Freriks, six grandchildren and two cats. She is further survived by her parents Miles and Donna (Raether) Wilson, her sister Cindy (Carl) Wilson-Saylor, her brother Mike Wilson (Amy VanMinsel), parents-in-law Ray (Gwen) Freriks, brother-in-law Jeff (Amy) Freriks, sister-in-law Renee (Dan) Zimmerman, and numerous other relatives and friends.

She is preceded in death by her grandparents Sam (Dottie) Wilson and Jacob (Marie) Raether, and her mother-in-law Bonnie Freriks.

A memorial service will be held on Saturday, March 30, 2024, at 5:00 p.m. at Ballhorn Chapels, 1201 N. 8th St. in Sheboygan, with Pastor Nicole Herda officiating. Relatives and friends may visit with the family on Saturday, March 30, 2024 from 2:00 p.m. until the time of service at the funeral home.

In lieu of flowers, a memorial fund will be established in Melody’s name. 

Forever in our hearts, Melody will be dearly missed but never forgotten.
