FRANCES (“FRANKIE”) JOYCE DILLINGHAM (nee WYSE)

-

With heavy hearts, we announce that Frankie passed away peacefully two months short of her 90th birthday, in long term care at the Devon General Hospital.

Frankie was born in Castor, AB and lived in numerous communities throughout Alberta including Flatbush, Barrhead, Streamstown, Fairview, Provost, Stettler, Lethbridge, Calgary, Medicine Hat and over 18 years in Devon.  She also spent many summers at their cabin at Parkland Beach.

She leaves to mourn her loving husband of 70 years Buster; son Norman (Barb); daughter Shelly Fuller (Greg); grandchildren Jennifer (Greg) Mihal, Jason (Jessica) Dillingham, McKenzie Fuller, Macey Fuller; 7 great-grandchildren Mitchell, Eliot, Ashtyn, Liam, Emma, Sammy and Sebastian; brothers Bill (Patricia) Wyse and Donald (Faith) Wyse; sister Clarice (Ron) Seely; numerous nieces and nephews.  She was loved by all.

She was predeceased by her parents Lawson and Clarissa Wyse and siblings Kenneth, Helen, Marjorie, Millie, Jean, Leonard and Keith; also by her son-in-law Cal Fuller and grandson-in-law Scott Campbell.

The family would like to thank the amazing staff of the Devon General Hospital for their care and compassion.  Frankie spent her last two years in the hospital’s long term care unit after a long battle with Alzheimers.

A Celebration of Frankie’s Life for all family and friends will be announced at a later date.  She is now resting in the arms of the Lord.

In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to the Devon General Hospital Foundation, 101 Erie Street S, Devon, AB T9G 1A6, or a charity of your choice.

Tribute wall - a place to share your memories and condolences

Larry Wyse

Shelly, Norm, Barb & family,

Your parents were special people to our family. My Mom & Dad (Marj & Ken) shared many Frankie & Buster stories of the good old days, and more recent times in Arizona. Usually centering around lots of laughs at the dinner table, during cards, and playing golf. Mom & Dad also shared with us about how supportive Frankie & Buster were, along with Pat & Willy, to them when grieving the loss of Jim & Marge. For me, I will never forget the family reunions & remembering that if there was noise & laughter in the vicinity, your Dad was always in the middle of it. As for your Mom, I will remember her affection every time we met which was always a big hug & kiss. The family pictures at the end of the service match up with many of the oldies we have. Maybe we can have a bit of a reunion of our own by pulling out our albums and going through them together sometime. You were blessed with parents who boldly lived out their faith in words and action by their friendliness & hospitality for which you can be forever proud and consider as an example for us all to follow.
