MORRISON, Frances Mary


It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Frances Mary Morrison (nee Logan) after a long battle with pulmonary hypertension.  She was 61.

Fran was born February 2, 1956 in Bathurst, NB to Mary and Burnham Logan.  She enjoyed many years in Fort McMurray, where she raised her family and taught primary school.  She brought much joy and happiness into everyone’s life, and her uplifting presence, kindness, and gentle demeanor will be immensely missed by all.

Fran will be lovingly remembered by her husband Bruce; daughters Jenny, Mindy (Kevin), and Laura; grandchildren Holly and Dean.  She will also be missed by sisters Dawn (Peter), Brenda (Paul) and Ellen (Chris); as well as numerous nieces, nephews, friends and relatives.  She is predeceased by mother Mary, father Burnham, and brother Roy.  Fran will also be remembered by all of the students whose lives she touched.  Beloved by all whose lives she filled with so much joy.

A service will be held on Tuesday, April 11, 2017 at 1:30 p.m. at St. Paul’s Evangelical Lutheran Church, 5104 Ellerslie Road SW, Edmonton, AB.  All are welcome.

Beloved wife, mother, daughter, sister, grandmother, friend, teacher, cook, baker, quilter, finger painter, and Pokemon battler.  She will be missed.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to support pulmonary hypertension research at the University of Alberta.  Cheques can be made out to the University of Alberta, with the Pulmonary Hypertension Program in the memo line.  They can be sent to:  Irene Mickel, WMC 2C2, 8440 – 112 Street, Edmonton, AB T6G 2B7.  Alternatively, donations to your local food bank are also appreciated.

Much loved, dearly missed.

Dear Bruce, Jenny, Mindy, and Laura
I have such fond memories of Fran as a fellow teacher at Dr Clark School and then as a wonderful mom when the girls were students at Dickinsfield. Fran’s gentle way with children drew the respect of her colleagues. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

Dear Bruce, Jenny, Mindy and Kevin, and Laura and Holly and Dean,
We are so saddened to hear of Fran’s death and want to offer our condolences and prayers for comfort to all of you. Fran was my steady rock next door during my first year of teaching Grade 2 at Dr. Clark. She was so calm and kind; always willing to lend a hand and give quiet advice to quell my first year jitters. I remember her gentle smile and generous spirit and will never forget her kindness. We mourn with you the loss of your beautiful wife, mother and grandmother. May God be with you all.
