Obituary for Wilfried P. Frauendorf

Wilfried P. Frauendorf of Southfield, died peacefully, July 11, 2012, at William Beaumont Hospital in Royal Oak. He was 83 years old. Wilfried was born September 29, 1928, in Minden, West Germany to Hertha (nee Schmidt) and Paul Frauendorf. He came to the United States when he was 18 years old to study at Wayne State University where he earned his Bachelor�s Degree in accounting.

Wilfried married Eila, the love of his life, on June 21, 1958, after meeting her in Detroit while ballroom dancing.

Wilfried worked at General Motors until he retired at the age of 58. He enjoyed trips to Germany and spending time at the family cottage in Brighton, Michigan. He also enjoyed fishing, bowling, hockey, and boating as well as being a great fan of the Lions, Tigers, and Red Wings.

Wilfried�s health declined over the last 5 years but he remained very independent and was able to stay in his own home with the assistance of his daughters. Even during his illness Wilfried was still able to share his constant love and dedication to his family and friends.

A devoted husband, father, grandfather, and friend, he will remain in the hearts of all those who loved him and will be deeply missed.

Wilfried is survived by his daughters, Christine (Jim) Nagy and Karin (Stephen) Lewton, and grandchildren, Justin, Jessica, Ana, and Nick. Wilfried is preceded in death by his beloved wife, Eila.
