Frances Kathleen (nee Mahon)

It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of our dearest mother, grandmother, aunt, cousin and friend on August 17, 2015 in Nanaimo, BC. Born on September 22, 1948 in Bracebridge, Ontario, Fran spent her youth growing up in Port Carling before moving with her family to Vancouver Island in 1966. Frances spent her adult life in Crofton and Duncan before moving to Nanaimo in 2010.

Fran was predeceased by her mother Joy Mahon (Ingram), father William Schomberg Mahon; infant sister Sharron Mahon; sister-in-laws Shirley Mahon and Sally Mahon; and cousin Jeannine Ouimet, who was like a sister to her.

Fran is survived by her brothers David (Heather), Jerry, Schomberg (Patricia) and Casey (Patricia); daughter Sharron (Brent) Cawley; son John (Tina) Jenner; grandchildren Brennen, Kevin (Amanda), Ryelen, Justin, Tianna and Jayden; great grandchildren Lucas and Alyssa; numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews.

Many thanks to all the kind and caring NRGH staff, Nanaimo Home Support, paramedics and firefighters who looked after mom during her times of need; especially for the care received in her last days.

No service or celebration of life by request. Flowers gratefully declined; however, if you wish to honour Fran’s memory, please consider a donation to the Nanaimo & District Hospital Foundation.

Until we meet again, may God hold you in the palm of His hand.
