1940 ~ 2015

Early on Saturday, October 31, 2015 at the Pinawa Hospital, due to complications related to rheumatoid arthritis, Fran passed away with her best friend and husband David of 56 years at her side.

She will be lovingly remembered and missed by her husband David, daughters Judy (Richard) Janzen, Caroline (Clark) Anderson, mother Eleanor Taylor, sisters Shirley (James) Burdick, Ida (Glen) Zarn, Grandchildren Christopher Janzen, Candice (Evan) Jones, David Janzen, Daniel Janzen, Cassandra (Jay) Swanson, Cole Anderson and Cheyenne Anderson as well as nieces, nephew. She was predeceased by her father Francis “Frank” Taylor and in-laws Strachan and Ada Booth.

Parents, Frank and Eleanor Taylor took baby Frances home from the Portage la Praire Hospital to their farm near Katrime after her birth on May 24, 1940.
Fran received her early education in the one-roomed Squirrel Creek School and continued her secondary education at MacGregor High School. After being employed at various office positions she found her true calling in life as a wife, mother and homemaker.
She was united in marriage to David Booth on August 1, 1959.  They made their first home in Minnedosa before becoming Pinawa Pioneers in July of 1963.  In Pinawa they were in on the beginnings of a town they loved and helped it grow along with their two daughters.  This did not mean Fran stayed at home. Her and Dave went on to farm in the Lac du Bonnet area, traveled extensively in North America and made a trip abroad before settling down again, splitting their time between Pinawa and Mission, TX.
Fran will be remembered for creating beauty and fun in her surroundings through her sunny personality, gardening, crafting, art, baking, cooking and most importantly her friendships with the people (and special puppy) that made up her world.

Heartfelt appreciation is felt for the support of friends, family, Doctor Manzar, Doctor Garg and the staff of Pinawa Hospital.
A memorial service is to be held at 1:00 p.m. on Saturday, November 7th at Sobering Funeral Chapel, 1035 Park Avenue E., Beausejour with a luncheon following at the Legion Hall also in Beausejour, MB.

Condolence from Gwen Greenstock on November 6th, 2015 2:27 pm

Dave: We were so sorry to hear of Fran’s passing from Leny Ohta. She lived so bravely with her illness for so very many years. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and Judy and Caroline and their families at this very sad, and I gather, unexpected time. We enjoyed the time we spent as neighbours in Pinawa, except for that one time when your bees escaped and hovered around our back and front doors. I called Fran and I remember her saying: Well what am I supposed to do about it? I said: “Call your husband at work – they are his bees and he will have to come home and deal with them!” On a happier note, I remember being so involved with Caroline’s wedding as I was playing the organ – still remember her as a bride with white leather cowboy boots! We hope you are able to remember the happier times as you grieve her passing. Clive and Gwen

Condolence from Barb (Sawatzky) Friesen on November 9th, 2015 10:56 am

Condolence from Christine Nuttall on November 12th, 2015 10:36 am

Our condolences to you, Dave, and your family. Christine and Gillian.
