elevated QTrCB Frances “Fran” was a very sociable and amiable lady. A kind and caring person. Easy to smile, and loved to laugh, she had a great sense of humour. Enjoyed parties, dancing, bowling, Bingo, and loved playing card games. While raising her four sons, baking was a favourite past time on Sunday afternoons, and later, she enjoyed making her delicious treats for others. Once her children were in school, she took employment fulltime as a switchboard-receptionist for ‘Aetna Life and Casualty’, then ‘Addison on Bay’ and finally retiring at ‘Sharp Electronics’, while still taking care of the household duties of child rearing, shopping, cooking and having a spotlessly clean home! She supported her boys’ sport endeavours, driving them to practices and games and was involved in fund raising for the Warren Park Hockey and High Park Baseball associations. In later years, living at Lampton Square condominiums, she helped organize events for the Social Committee.

elevated QTrCB Frances Doyle will always be remembered lovingly as a special lady, who will definitely be missed by those who knew her.
