Nov. 5, 1934 – May 11, 2017
Fran passed away peacefully in her sleep at home in Qualicum Beach. She is survived by her beloved husband of 62 years, Randle, her children Cathy, David (Pat) and Vicki, and her five grandchildren.
Fran moved to Qualicum from Vancouver in 1980. She quickly made friends, became involved in the community, and was one of the founding members of the Arrowsmith Tennis Club. Fran served on the Boards of North Island College, Malaspina College and Vancouver Island University foundation. She also continued to
work in the family business while tirelessly volunteering at Milner Gardens in various roles such as wedding planner and Teddy Bear Christmas co-ordinator. In her spare time, Fran was always up for a competitive game of bridge, ping pong, tennis or a round of golf.
Fran (Mum) was overwhelmed by the kindness from friends who have sent cards, flowers and meals over the last couple of months. We would also like to extend many thanks to Dr. Garth Loughead and to the wonderful Oceanside home care nurses and doctors for their compassion
Fran’s energy, graciousness and generosity were gifts that she shared with all of us. She will be greatly missed.
At Fran’s request there will be no formal service.
