Frances was a “homemaker” in the true sense of the word, and she was always ready to sit down for a chat, with a cup of tea, of course. She loved gardening and her little dogs. Frances was always active in community/volunteer organizations. During the war she was part of the Civil Defence as a plane spotter. She has been a member and secretary of St. Mary’s Anglican Church (Merville) Ladies Guild for more than 40 years; Past Noble Grand of Tsolum #78 Rebekah Lodge (IOOF); member of “Friends of the Library”; and “Doll Lady” for Santa’s Workshop. Frances was dearly loved and will be greatly missed.
