On Monday August 12, 2013 Fran died peacefully at the age of 91.
Mom will be lovingly remembered by her four children Bob (Ginny) of North Augusta, ON, Alan (Cindy) of Smith’s Falls, ON, Jim (Mary) of London, ON and Patricia (Matthew) Greenways of Edmonton; six grandchildren Jade Rosin (Nathan Niedzwiedz), Jared Rosin (Erin MacLean), Chris (Rebekah), Rebecca (Jon) Barnett, Sara, and Daniel Greenways; and five great-grandchildren Adriana, Leif, Patrick, Gunnar, and Jamieson. She will also be dearly missed by countless wonderful friends and neighbours. Fran was predeceased by her husband George in 1990, her daughter-in-law Ann, and her grandson David.
Fran grew up in Manitoba, raised her family in Ottawa, and grew old in Edmonton. She was active in the appreciation of the arts, playing the violin, playing bridge, painting, and gardening. She shared her home and love with many students, and families in need of hospice.
A memorial service for Fran will be held at St. Paul’s United Church, 11526 – 76 Avenue, on Saturday August 17, 2013 at 11:00 am, followed by lunch and a time of fellowship.
Fran gave to so many around her who were in need. Donations in memory of Fran can be made to a charity of your choice. May her spirit live on through you.
