Fran’s pride and joy was her family and she was very dear to her family not only as a wife of 63 years to Russ, a mother of 4, a nana of 8 and grand nana of 2, but was cherished as a mentor, guide, confidant and even a matchmaker. Through her love, support, patience and example her family have become reflections of the values that she lived by, kindness and acceptance of all, service to community as shown by her over 60 year commitment to the CWL and faith in God. All who met her were immediately taken by her class, kindness and joy for life. She made a point of inviting those who were new to the parish or were alone to join her for coffee after mass so that they knew that they were truly welcome at the church and not alone. Fran had a love of gardening and enjoyed many hours cultivating friendships while touring her yard. Fran loved to take part in many activities and was an active member of Shanty Bay Golf club nurturing many friendships. Fran loved to entertain, shop and always looked fantastic. Many people benefitted from her wisdom, support and advice as she showed us what love truly is. She will be missed everyday, but her legacy of love will live on through her family.
The family would like to extend their sincere gratitude to Dr. Nancy Trimble and the nursing staff on the Specialized Seniors Care Unit at the Royal Victoria Regional Health Centre.
