CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - The Charleston community has lost a special lady with the passing of Margot Freudenberg who died Monday.

She was a Holocaust survivor who came to this country with almost nothing. She made a wonderful name for herself here in her beloved Lowcountry and established Hope Lodge, a  place where cancer patients could stay free of charge while getting treatment.

In fact, her model for Hope Lodge was copied around the country. Live 5's Bill Sharpe said Freudenberg had a great sense of humor and was one of the kindest people he's ever met.

Her funeral is tomorrow at 2 p.m. at the KK Eeth Elohim synagogue on Huguenin Avenue.

Freudenberg was 105-year-old.
