Frances was so loved by her family. She had such a funny sense of humour that would have you in tears from laughing. She enjoyed life and loved to play bingo and loved playing late night cards with her card buddies. She enjoyed going to the Yale hotel for lunch eating one of her favourites, fried rice, and chicken balls. If you could not find her there, she would be next door playing her favourite slot Lobster Larry. Frances has always lived in the city and was always known to family a city gal. She made the best meatloaf and loved to make delicious meals. Frances was a survivor. Spending much of her younger years in Lindsay, Ontario. She enjoyed country music and loved her gospel music, listening to the gospel station on Sundays. She was affectionately known as “Maka” by some of her grandchildren. A nickname given to her when Nevaeh was very little. They shared a special bond. Frances will be dearly missed by all.

We would like to thank The Grace Hospital and all the nurses and doctors who provided gentle comfort and care.
