Predeceased by her loving husband, Allan (2007) and great grandson, Nathan (2021). Loving and devoted mother to Ben (Kathy), Marjorie (David Roberts), Jim (Connie) and Susan (Gareth Harries), and proud “nanny” to 12 grandchildren and 3 great grandchildren. Predeceased by her sister Isabel Bailly (2019). Survived by brother-in-law Bob Bailly and sister-in-law Ruth Hammond, as well as many nieces, nephews, cousins, and dear friends.
The simplest pleasures in life brought great joy to Frances. She was known for her fierce love of family and the family farm, an inspiration to her community, and her supportive, sincere and kind spirit. She was much loved and through our memories, she will always have life in our hearts.
The family is grateful to the staff at the Lachute Residence for the compassionate and professional care given to Frances during the past year-and-a-half.
A graveside ceremony will be held in the spring. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions to the Lachute Protestant Cemetery or the Lachute Regional Residence Foundation would be appreciated by the family.
Funeral arrangements entrusted to Salon Roland Ménard Inc., 395 Grace Street, Lachute QC J8H 1M3.
