Canton- Freda Rose Conn Hampton, age 78, a beautiful lady who had devoted her life to her family and was dedicated to always caring for others, entered into her heavenly home on Wednesday, August 14, 2019.

Rose was born June 16, 1941 in Mingo County, West Virginia to the late Cletis Conn and the late Sarah Jane Kirk Conn. She had formerly resided in Blair, West Virginia before making her home in Canton for the past 26 years. Mrs. Hampton chose the field of nursing for her life career as a Registered Nurse where she touched the lives of many who will never ever forget her kindness and caring spirit. She was employed in many different aspects of the nursing profession and her last nursing position was with the Brian Center in Waynesville, where in her later years Mrs. Hampton became a patient and was cared for until her passing. Rose held a strong faith and she was a member of Rocky Face Baptist Church in Canton.  She was a wonderful and loving wife, mother and grandmother.
