It is great sadness that we announce the passing of “Fran”, wife, sister, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and friend to many. Fran passed away on Wednesday, Nov. 24, 2021 in Emerald Park at the age of 93.
She was predeceased by her parents, Richard and Fanny Maber; sister, Mary Archer and husband Jack; sisters-in-law, Dorothy Hough and Jean Livingstone; brothers-in-law, Earl Hough, Adam Mack, David Livingstone and Jack Peters.
She is survived by her children, Donnie, Sarah (Mark) and Richard (Mike); and sister-in-law, Catherine Mack. She also leaves to mourn her grandchildren, Ryan, Eric (Anne), Drew, Noel (Robin) and Julie; great-grandchildren, Hunter, Archer, Logan, Estelle, Amelia, Xavier and Sarah Mae; nieces, nephews and friends.
Fran was born in Plato, SK, where her dad was the General Merchant. Her family moved to Saskatoon for her high school years and Fran completed training at Business College. She worked in numerous administrative positions over the years always successful at what she did. She met Jack in Moose Jaw in September 1950 and they were married by March 1951, enjoyed 67 years together. They built, owned and operated the Scenic
Service in Fort Qu’Appelle and started their family. Jack then became Postmaster and they raised their family, living and working in Fort Qu’Appelle with many special memories of those years. In 1973, Jack’s work took them to Indian Head where they lived and worked for many years. They moved to Regina in 2005 where they enjoyed time with old friends and making a new circle of special friends at Marian Grande. Poor health saw them move to College Park I in 2016 and most recently Fran moved to William Albert House in Emerald Park.
No matter where she lived or worked Fran was the ‘hostess with the mostest’. She loved to socialize and entertain with the many friends she met over the years. When events evolved around Jack’s hockey life Fran’s ‘hospitality room’ was always open to welcome friends and family. She is known for her dinners, socials and parties that were enjoyed by many.
We are so grateful to all the health care professionals who kept Fran safe and well over the last five years. Special thanks to the wonderful Home Care nurses and caregivers, the team at Seniors Health Calls, her doctors from Gardens Medical Clinic and staff at College Park 1. We are especially grateful for the nurses, caregivers and staff at William Albert House for the care and compassion provided in those last, tough days.
Friends wishing to make donations in Fran’s name, may make them to STARS Ambulance Service 2640 Airport Road, Regina, SK S4W 1A6.
The family will say farewell in a private graveside ceremony. A Celebration of Life will be held on Saturday, June 11, 2022 (subject to COVID restrictions) in the Anglican Parish Hall in Fort Qu’Appelle at 2 p.m. Online condolences may be made at
