MacDOUGALL, Frances. February 29, 1932 – August 14, 2012. It is with profound sadness we announce the sudden passing of Frances MacDougall on August 14th, 2012 after a short illness. Born on February 29, 1932, Frances was predeceased by her mother and father, Ethel and Frank Kilbride. Frances leaves behind her husband Evan, son Peter (Rachel), daughter Laurie (Kindy), Evan’s daughters, Donna and Kyndree, her sisters, Joan, Shirley and Patricia, and grandchildren, Kyndree, Grant, Zoey, Caelee, Saje, Kiran, Samuel, Tavi, Ainav, and Maxwell, and great grandchildren Jake and Tao.
Though her departure was unexpected, hers was a full life dedicated to family, friendship, community and teaching. She was a wonderful wife, mother and grandmother, a lifelong teacher, and a compassionate, curious and enthusiastic person. Her passion and determination co-existed in equal measure and enabled her to achieve many successes and bear any burden. A celebration of her life will take place in Hope, BC on Thursday August 23rd, 2012 at 2pm at the Hope Golf Club. In lieu of flowers, you are invited to make a donation to the Grandmothers to Grandmothers Campaign at the Stephen Lewis Foundation.
