Fran, most beloved wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, passed away in her 91st year after a wonderful and joyous life.

Fran was born in Medicine Hat and moved to Calgary at an early age where she lived a full and creative life devoted to her family, friends and community. Among her many joys were her more than thirty years of dedicated service at Heritage Park and travelling with family, especially the many trips to Hawaii with Harold.

Celebrating her life are her loving husband Harold; children, Don (Vicki), Bette (Don) and Brent (Laily); grandchildren, Jon, Todd, Alison, Jodi, Dan and Kara; great-grandchildren Lukas and Milla; and brother Gerry. Fran was predeceased by her parents Christina Louise and Thomas Henry; brothers Paul and Bud; and sister Audrey.

A Private Family Service will be held at a later date. Forward condolences through www.mcinnisandholloway.com.

Condolence Messages

  1. Please accept my condolences concerning your tragic loss. I knew “Mrs. Saklofske” as a teenager and she was always so very kind to me. I remember once that she offered her home for a couple of days due to a conflict that I had with my own parents and she even went so far as to phone my mother to help patch things up with them. She was a wonderful person and I always had the utmost respect for her. There should be more people like her in this world. Don and family, just know that Jacquie and I are thinking of you at this difficult time.

    My condolences to you and your family with the loss of Fran. She was a wonderful woman who taught me how to be a good cook and take pride in taking care of the home. I will always remember the superb Sunday dinners all those years ago and how she made feel so much a part of the family. I know its a difficult time, as my mom passed away this last April. With warmest regards and sympathy, Barb

    So sorry to hear of the loss of your mother. It sounds like she had a full & complete life but know she will be greatly missed by all, especially Harold. Never met your mom Brent, but from the picture she was certainly an attractive & happy lady.
