Bill and Frankie met while they were teaching in Orillia. Later on she taught Latin, English and French at East Elgin (Aylmer), Providence College (Brantford), and Paris District H.S.
An exceptional student at Renfrew Collegiate and Queen’s, Frankie stayed in touch with the many friends she made along the way. She often filled in on the organ at St. James in Paris. Always a lady, she liked antiques, Wayne and Shuster and gloried in her very old house in Paris on Banfield Street.
Frankie was a grateful cancer survivor and a devout Christian.
Special thanks to Reverend Lola and the palliative team at Ridgeview LTC.
