MOLYNEUX, Frances Anne
March 1, 1933 - February 28, 2011


Fran Molyneux passed away at the Foothills Hospital in Calgary on Monday, February 28, 2011, following a brief illness. Fran is survived by Rick (Dale), Terry (Dale), Jackie, Allie (Pinky), Debbie, Gordon (Sherry), Kim (Randy), JoAnn (Frank), 19 grandchildren and 15 great-grandchildren. She is also survived by her brother Ralph Price (Louise) of Grande Prairie, Alberta, sister Jean Donahue of Maple Ridge, B.C., brothers-in-law Jack (Ruth) Molyneux of Nacmine and Joe (Rosemary) Molyneux of Fort McMurray, Alberta, and sister-in-law Joyce Price of Prince George, B.C. Fran was predeceased by her husband of 56 years, Ali, in 2006, daughter Sandra, brother Art, sister Fay, and two great-grandchildren, Tyler and Brandon. Mom was born in Debden, Sask. in 1933 and has been a resident of Nacmine for the past 59 years. She loved reading, gardening, walking, and was famous for all the loaves of bread and tasty cinnamon buns that were a family favourite. Camping and fishing were her and Ali’s summer pastimes, and Christmas stockings were always filled with crocheted dishcloths for all of the family. Her needlepoint work adorns the walls of all of her family’s homes. She will always be in our hearts and lovingly remembered by us all. At her request, no funeral service will be held, and a private family gathering will be held at a later date. If desired, memorial donations can be made to the Drumheller Heart to Heart Society, Box 162, Drumheller, AB T0J 0Y0.
