Frances “Fran” Heming of Red Deer, went to be with her Lord on Saturday, October 10, 2015 at the age of 97 years. Fran was born in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan.
She was an extraordinary woman of faith who loved serving God and the church. In 1941 she married Dempster ‘Babe’ Heming, the love of her life. Their 72 years together were full of laughter, joy and purpose in serving others. Fran committed her life to Christ early in life and served Him faithfully. Her favorite topic was God’s grace. Her favorite chapter of the Bible was Romans 8. Her favorite scripture was “We are more than conquerors through Him who loved us.”
She is survived by her daughter and son-in-law, Heather & Mel Mullen, grandchildren Jachin and Rebecca Mullen and Chad and Christy Carritt; as well as by six great-grandchildren, Jade, Davin, Levi, Ava, Jude and Matthew. Fran is also survived by her brother, Allan Freeman, of Calgary as well as numerous nieces and nephews and extended family and friends. Fran was predeceased by her husband “Babe” on May 27, 2013.
Fran loved her church family, and Fran’s legacy is family and friends who follow her example of faithfully serving God and others.
