It's been a sad day for the Midland County Sheriff's Department.

Corporal Freda Blythe passed away on Friday after a battle with breast cancer.

Midland County law enforcement held a fundraiser for Corporal Blythe in July to help pay for her hospital bills and other expenses.

County authorities say Deputy Blythe served not only Midland but helped out in other areas of West Texas.

You may remember all the flooding in Presidio County, Corporal Blythe was instrumental in organizing a food drive for those victims.
