October 6, 1926 – October 11, 2009

Frances passed away peacefully at Lady Minto Hospital.  She is survived by her husband Glenn, daughter Susan (Don), sons Robert (Catherine) and Bill, and grandchildren Katie, Lindsay, Will and Olivia.  Frances was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba, and growing up moved to Windsor, Ontario and Calgary, Alberta.  She attended the University of Alberta where she was a member of the Kappa Alpha Theta Sorority and received her Bachelor of Science in Nursing in 1950.  Frances moved to Vancouver where she met Glenn, was married and raised her family.  She was a long time member of the Vancouver Lawn Tennis and Badminton Club and dedicated volunteer for many years at the 3-H Society.   Frances and Glenn later moved to Salt Spring Island.  Frances was a devoted wife and loving mother who will be greatly missed by her family and many friends.  The family is grateful for the care provided by Dr. David Woodley and the staff at Lady Minto Hospital, and for the friendship and support at Meadowbrook Seniors Residence.  No service by request.  In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Lady Minto Hospital Foundation (ladymintofoundation.com).
