INMAN, A. Frances

March 06, 1921 ~ January 19, 2012

It is with deep sadness that we mourn the passing of Fran at the age of 90 years. She leaves behind her beloved husband of 69 years, James and daughters, Donna of Surrey, Dale (Ken) of Nanaimo, and son, Ted (Helen) of Calgary, as well as her only brother, Raymond (Lorna) of South Surrey, 1 nephew and 3 nieces. Fran loved her 7 grandchildren and 5 great grandchildren. They always brought a smile to her face.

Fran was born in Newdale, Manitoba to Lionel and Alice Dennison. In later years she moved with her family to Regina to attend school. She met Jim in 1942 while living in Winnipeg and later married on June 26, 1943. They moved from Winnipeg, in 1956, to Edmonton, and after a number years on to Victoria and finally to Nanaimo. They resided in Sharman Park before moving to Nanaimo Seniors’ Village in 2007.

Fran’s sports of choice were golfing and curling. She enjoyed them both immensely along with square dancing. After retiring, they loved to travel in their 5th wheel down to Arizona and throughout the US. Fran was also an accomplished artist, who loved painting into the wee hours of the morning. She will be deeply missed by all who knew her.

No service by request, but a Memorial Tea will be held in the springtime.
