Southworth, DeEtta

Southworth (Freeman), DeEtta, 63, Sunrise: August 29, 1955 – Sunset: November 11, 2018 passed away peacefully with her family by her side at Albany Medical Center while her Buffalo Bills finally won a game.

DeEtta will be remembered for sharing her laughter with her family and friends. DeEtta had a passion for cooking and all those who had the pleasure of sampling her menu will forever crave her Chicken Curry, Fried Chicken and Frank and Potato bake.

She is also survived by her siblings, Estella Freeman, William Freeman, Jr., Rosemary Freeman and Tina Jewett.
