January 22, 1919 – June 10, 2012
On Sunday, June 10th early in the morning, our Mom passed away after spending the last few weeks of her life in the care of the wonderful folks at Chinook Hospice.
Tidy Fran will be sadly missed by all of her family: Susan and Bob Marshall of Calgary, Mark Jones and Sharon Balay of Edmonton and her six grandchildren and eight great grandchildren.
Mom was born in Vancouver in 1919 and moved to Calgary with our Dad (Tom) after the war. We came along not long after and grew up in Elboya and eventually Mayfair. Mom and Dad were golfers and from 1960 could be found at Earl Grey Golf Course on most weekends and many other days. Mom continued actively golfing through 2010 and we don’t think that she ever lost a ball, well maybe on 7. Dad passed away in 2000 but Mom carried on and was an inspiration to everyone. A devout Catholic, Mom was part of the founding parishioner group at St Anthony’s where she could be found every Sunday, and on other days, in her regular pew on the right side. Other than her family, Mom’s friends from Earl Grey and from St. Anthony’s were a huge part of her life and we thank them for their kind thoughts in her last days. It was Mom’s wish that there not be a funeral service but sometime in the next while a Mass will be said for her at St. A’s.
We’ll miss you Mom…all of us …so, “Here’s to the glass, the lass …
