FRANCES “FRAN” MAXINE ANDREWS, beloved wife of the late Delvin Andrews, passed away peacefully at St. Michael’s Health Centre on Saturday, October 1, 2022 at the age of 91 years.
Frances is survived by her daughter Judith (Dennis – deceased) Hooey, their children David (Vivian) Forestell, Suzanne (Javier) Solsona, Jennifer (Greg) Kozak, Tracey (Loewen) Schmidt, and Kent (Kimberly) Hooey and their grandchildren Elizabeth Forestell, Nash and Rio Solsona, Hayley, Cameron, and Ethan Warren, Jared and Lilly Schmidt, and Brodie Hooey; her son Delbert (Lorenda) Andrews, their children Michael Andrews and Steven (Christine) Andrews and their grandchildren Kai, Teyha, and Callie Andrews and Peyton and Brett Smith.
Frances was born in Lethbridge on September 10, 1931, and was the youngest of five children born to Erwin and Elizabeth Frey. She grew up on the family farm south of Readymade where she attended school. She graduated in 1948, and soon after began working at the Bank of Montreal in Coaldale.
Frances was a loving homemaker and enjoyed helping on the farms where Delvin was employed. In 1958, they moved to Lethbridge, and a couple of years later, bought Holberton’s Plumbing. Frances then became the bookkeeper as well.
Frances enjoyed curling and golfing sometimes with Delvin and sometimes with the ladies. She also spent her time crocheting, sewing, quilting, knitting, and other crafts. She was a member of the Laurel Chapter #43 of the Order of Eastern Star, the Henderson Lake Golf Course, and the Lethbridge Curling Club.
Frances will be remembered by family and friends as a thoughtful, caring, generous woman who would lend a helping hand whenever she was asked. She loved to dance and play cards with Delvin and their friends. She had a wonderful sense of humor and loved to laugh.
A Celebration of Fran’s Life will be held at CORNERSTONE FUNERAL HOME, 2825 – 32 Street South, Lethbridge, AB, on Saturday, October 8, 2022 at 2:30 P.M. with Patrick Siedlecki officiating.
