"Puss," as she was lovingly nicknamed by her father, was the youngest of five children and the last surviving member of her immediate family.

At age 12, she began as an organist at St. Patrick's Church, Digby, a position that she filled off and on in the local diocese for many years. Her lifelong studies in music and dance led her to become a teacher of both, bringing much joy and happiness to many children and adults alike. In 1957 she formed the first Digby Majorette troupe, entertaining throughout Western Nova Scotia. From 1968 to 1978 she taught ballet and tap dancing classes at the Clare District schools, University Ste. Anne, as well as in Weymouth, Digby, and surrounding areas. From 1957 to 1985 and beyond, she was a music teacher and also the pianist for several bands including the "Troubadors" at Harbour View, the "Sounds of Velvet" and "Satin Serenade", who played locally and throughout the province, and finally the "Last Straws", entertaining at the Digby Yacht Club. A lover of nature and "natural ways", she enjoyed many happy hours working in and around her home and in her garden. She always took great pleasure in all the adventures and accomplishments of her family, of which she was so proud. She will be gratefully remembered and sadly missed by all those whose lives she touched. Frances was predeceased by her husband, Roy; brothers, Glenn and Donald, and sisters, Evelyn and Vivian.
