Alfreda grew up in Corrigan, TX and graduated from Wayne Wright Johnson High School in 1966. That same year, she started her family of four children. They then moved to Carlsbad, NM in 1975 where she continued to raise her children, as well as getting baptized confirming her faith as a Jehovah's Witness. Alfreda was committed to her faith, and was dedicated to her public ministries. She later worked several years as a children’s care giver, before she helped start A&E Janitorial Services. Alfreda then ventured into starting her own business, True Clean as she continued to work in her community.
Alfreda was known for always being generous and for having an open-door policy. She loved cooking and baking, and always made sure others were taken care of. Her smile and laugh were two things that always brightened any room she walked in, and went hand in hand with her being a loyal and true friend. Besides being great at both shopping and fishing, she had an adventurous spirit and enjoyed traveling and taking cruises. Alfreda loved her family dearly, and took every moment she could to create memories with them. One of her favorite pastimes was taking walks along the Pecos River in Carlsbad and feeding the ducks with her grandchildren. Her legacy of love and joy will live on in hearts of all who knew her.
Alfreda was preceded in death by her father, Luther White, Sr.; mother, Tommie (Mallory) White; son, Mark Anthony Foreman; and three brothers: Melvin White, Harland White, and Luther White, Jr.
Alfreda is survived by her three children: Elijah Foreman, Jr. of Lubbock, TX; Donna Ford and husband, Eugene of Lubbock, TX; Anthony Foreman of Carlsbad, NM; five grandchildren: Renee Foreman, Mark Foreman, Avery Ford, Claire Ford, and Lacey Foreman; father of her children, Elijah Foreman, Sr. of Carlsbad, NM; five siblings: Caroline Horace of Lufkin, TX; Margaret Figgs of Corrigan, TX; Alice Bookman of Corrigan, TX; James White of Lufkin, TX; and Ray Joe White of Corrigan, TX; and numerous nieces, nephews, cousins, as well as brothers and sisters-in-law whom she loved.
