Obituary of Frances Maureen Guthrie
It is with great sadness that the family of Frances “Franny” Maureen Guthrie (Harley) announces her passing which occurred on Thursday, July 15, 2021, at St. John & St. Stephen Nursing Home. Born in Saint John, NB on July 3, 1932, she was a daughter of the late Michael Edward and Sarah Jane (Sliney) Harley.
Frances worked as an assistant manager for Reitman’s. She was full of fun, loved to make jokes, was faithful and dedicated to her church. Frances took great pride in her little house and yard. She enjoyed taking trips down to Los Angeles and Las Vegas to visit with her sister, Betty and her family. Frances loved each and every one of her nieces and nephews and they all loved her. She appreciated all the help that family friends, Neil Fulton and Jeanette LeBlanc gave her over the years. She will be deeply missed by those who knew her.
Frances is survived by her two children, Robert “Bobby” Guthrie and Theresa “Terry” Oldfield (Douglas); grandchildren, Heather Oldfield (Mark) and Randy Oldfield; great-grandchildren, Deven Pipes (Raina); great-great-grandchild, Kayomi Pipes; sister, Betty Didushok; sister-in-law, Theresa DeGennaro; as well as several nieces and nephews.
