It is with great sorrow the family announces the passing of Frances Kuz on Saturday, July 29, 2017, after a lengthy and courageous battle with cancer.
Mom will be lovingly remembered by her children Ellen (Lester), Darin (Colleen), Alison (Garry) and Ryan (Lindsay), grandchildren Nolan, Erin, Shannon, Joel and Darien, brother Charlie (Johanna), sister in-law Lena, and numerous nieces, nephews and friends.
Mom was born in Winnipeg in 1939 and grew up on the family farms, first in Green Bay and later in Whitemouth. She married our dad in 1961 and moved to Rennie where they ran the Rennie Hotel. Later on in life she took great pride and pleasure with her little coffee shop, Franny’s.
During Mom’s time, she was the staple of life: she worked long, hard hours without complaint, raised her family, was an active community member and still had time to keep a close relationship with family and friends.
Mom lived a simple life and loved to laugh. She always found the good in people. She loved nature, looked forward to every berry season and was famous for her pies and other baking.
Her children and grandchildren meant more to her than anything. She taught us that family was the most treasured thing in life. Words cannot describe how much she loved, and how much she was loved in return.
Flowers are gratefully accepted or a donation may be made to Siloam Mission, 300 Princess Street, Winnipeg, MB R3B 9Z9, or Salvation Army, 204-290 Vaughan Street, Winnipeg, MB R3B 2N8.
Funeral Service will be held on Saturday, September 9, 2017 at 12:00 p.m. at the Whitemouth Recreation Centre.
