FRANCES MARGARET YOUNG
Frances passed away December 12, 2012 with daughter, April and granddaughter, Tara by her side. She was predeceased by her son, Bob in 2004. Mom had a very long battle with Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia. Fighting it all the way, she still chose to live and seek joy from every day.
Mom was born and raised in Vancouver where she met and married the man of her dreams, Robert Harry Young. They spent almost 50 years together getting into all kinds of mischief until his sudden passing in 2005. They loved the outdoors, particularly fishing and camping in the middle of nowhere. After Dad passed away Mom would meet with friends to go for walks on the beach and inspect the rocks in Qualicum. She really loved her hummingbirds, they gave her such joy as did her love of her garden. Mom was such a gentle and forever stubborn soul.
Many thanks is given to the nursing care at NRGH, to Dr. Bell and his Staff and some pretty special friends. Flowers gratefully declined. Any donations may be made to the BC Cancer Foundation. Funeral service was held at 11 am, December 20, 2012, at Parksville Fellowship Baptist Church, 550 Pym St., Parksville BC.
