Nellie Louise Fregonas, age 71, of Sunbury, OH passed away on Friday, August 24, 2018 at the Kobacker House in Columbus OH.
Nellie, originally from New Bern, NC had lived in the area for over 42 years. She was known for her ability to make people laugh as well as her caring and respectful character. Nellie, an interior designer by profession, graduated from the Columbus College of Art and Design in 1984 and went on to make her mark in the homes of the people in central Ohio in a career that spanned decades. She was also known to be quite the handy-woman and gardener as she found much joy tending to the flowers she so dearly loved.
In addition to her late parents, Harvey and Mary McGlawhorn, Nellie was preceded in death by her brother, John Wilson.
Nellie leaves behind a loving husband of nearly 27 years, John Fregonas, of the home in Sunbury; two daughters: Tracy Keene (Scott Dolan) of Ashley, OH, Corey Gepper of Delaware, OH; two grandsons: Dustin Bullington and Travis Dolan, both of Ashley, OH; a brother: Willie Wilson, of Farmville, NC; and a sister: Barbara Wilson of New Bern, NC.

The family will receive friends for two hours prior to the service from 4:00 to 6:00 pm. A private interment will occur at a later date.
