July 1 6, 1 924 Oc­to­ber 29, 2018

Peace­fully in her sleep, in her 95th year, on Arvid’s birth­day. “Come on Frances, join the party. We’re hav­ing fun.” Fol­low­ing a lengthy de­gen­er­a­tive neu­ro­log­i­cal dis­ease that left her vul­ner­a­ble in many ways, she died un­der the care of the Sun­ny­brook Pal­lia­tive Care Unit. Adored wife of the late Arvid (2012); gen­tle and lov­ing mother of daugh­ter, Sarah; sons, Erik (Nanette) and Leif (2008); and daugh­ter-in-law, Lee (2017). Kind grand­mother of Craig (Erin), Jamie, Kate, and Ali (Se­bas­tian). Great­grand­mother of Lo­gen Pettersen. Artist, gar­dener, reader, golfer, bridge player, Frances put her fam­ily and their health and well­be­ing ahead of every­thing. Stud­ied at the Banff School of Fine Arts, past mem­ber of the Toronto Wa­ter­colour So­ci­ety, led Chris­tian/Jew­ish di­a­logue at St Clement’s Church, and ar­ranged art ex­hibits at Thorn­hill Golf & Coun­try Club. Later, ‘taught art’ at the North York Se­niors Cen­tre and SPRINT Day Pro­gram. If de­sired, do­na­tions to the Alzheimer So­ci­ety of Toronto, or Fam­ily Coun­cils On­tario greatly ap­pre­ci­ated. Or ‘pay it for­ward’ and do a good deed in her mem­ory. Frances be­lieved “Love makes the world go round.” Friends wel­come on Thurs­day, No­vem­ber 15th at 1 p.m. for a ser­vice at St. Clement’s Church, Toronto, with re­cep­tion to fol­low.
