Predeceased by husband Gerald and sons Robert and Chesley.
Frances lived alone since her husband’s passing and raised her family and worked at the Fish Plant in Burin. She was a strong willed woman who done things her way. She loved to play bingo and play cards. (Sometimes she would cheat to win but not often). She loved company the more the merrier, when no one was visiting she was often heard to say « come on door open ». Feeding the ducks was one of her favorite things to do and often fed them her homemade buns. Her bird feeders were always full, she made sure to have lots of bird seed on hand. Her feeders were kept full by her good friend Brian Abbott who also emptied her dehumidifier for her. He spent many hours keeping her company, she bought special treats for him and she loved him dearly. Frances was a very faithful lady and loved to see Rev. James visit and was known to say » the good man is here. » Her family will miss the sound of her laughter and her quick and witty replies to them. She had a answer for everything.
