Frances Cleveland

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Frances Teresa Cleveland (Mattice) on March 23, 2016 at 7:30 pm after a battle with cancer.

Frances was predeceased by her husband James, daughter Diane, grandson Michael, and her partner later in life George. She is survived by her 4 daughters, Linda/John, Cheryl/Rubin, Brenda/Ian, Laurie/Doug and her son James A Jr/Doris.

She leaves behind 10 grandchildren and 22 great grandchildren. She is survived by her sisters Rita/Lionel, Sharon, and brothers Clifford/Anne, Jack/Lucy, as well as numerous nieces, nephews and friends. There are too many to mention but their visits, calls and cards brightened her days. Her quiet, sweet disposition will sadly be missed by all.

The family would like to extend a special thank you to the Community Care Health Services and the community nurses. Mom was at home to the very end and we couldn’t have done it without their helpful support and caring.

Cremation will take place at the Five Rivers Crematorium. A celebration of life will be held on Saturday, July 16th, 2016 at the Williams Lake Cemetery at 1:00 pm where she will be laid to rest beside her husband. Tea and refreshments to follow at the Royal Canadian Legion.

In lieu of flowers those wishing to make a donation in her memory may wish to consider donating to the Williams Lake Hospice or Community Nursing Palliative Care.
