Cherished grandmother of Lynn, Annie, Conor, Keara, Matthew and Christopher. Frances had a fulfilling career as a nurse and worked at Sudbury Memorial Hospital, taking time off only to raise her children. She will be sadly missed by many lifelong friends. Guests are invited to celebrate Frances’ life at a gathering luncheon at the Steckley-Gooderham Funeral Home, 201 Minet’s Point Rd, Barrie, on Sunday November 6th, from 2pm until 4pm.
