On November 9th at the age of 79 Elfreda Solomon went home to be with the Lord after experiencing complications due to a major stroke and renal failure. Elfreda Solomon was born Elfreda Jones on February 24, 1944 in Somerton Jamaica WI to Uriah Jones and Adalma Farkinson. She was the fifth child of the pair.

Elfreda is known for her beautiful singing voice, her commitment to serving others, her love of young people and her dedication to the Lord Jesus Christ. Elfreda lived an honourable and noble life. She always demonstrated persistence in the face of challenges. Her home was open to anyone to visit or stay when needed.

Elfreda was a natural caregiver and enjoyed taking care of other people. This passion led her to a 36 year career with Sick Kids Hospital. She worked as a healthcare professional in the nutrition, hematology and sterilization departments.

For over 63 years Elfreda has been active in the ministry. For 10 years she served in Studley Park Aposotlic Church in Jamaica and has served Bethel Apostolic Church in Toronto as an evangelist, Sunday School Teacher and church mother since 1970. She actively supported many missions through dedicating her time, and finances to helping others.

Alfreda, sister, wife, mother, aunt and friend. Affectionately known to us nieces and nephews as Auntie Freda or for short respectfully Auntie. My younger years I recalled visiting her, when my mom, (her sister Lupeter), would take the drive from Scarborough to Mississauga on most weekends. Auntie always received us with open arms, even when most of the visits were unexpected. She would quietly enter her kitchen and fix something from her cupboard for us to have a meal and an enjoyable conversation around the table. Mom was spontaneous and family time with her siblings meant a whole lot to her, especially since Auntie Freda and her were the only ones in Canada, all the others were in the USA. Us cousins, would sneak away while the two of them reminisced of their childhood days, we have heard the stories countless times. My better recollection of Auntie is during my adulthood, this time I would take the opportunity to call so mom and her could talk or to take my mom over for visits. Auntie was too sick by then to leave home. Auntie has fought a good fight, she have kept her faith. She have now been given rest in the Lord. I will certainly miss her. Visiting Canada will not be the same without her. I look forward with hope of meeting her in the ‘earth made new’ on that great getting up morning.
Much love, Shalom!

My condolences to the family, and I am so sorry for your loss.
I know from experience that it's hard to lose a loved one to the grave, but we have the blessed hope that Jesus gave.

We will meet her in the morning, in the City that is built four square.

Cherish her memories and take one day at a time.
