We Remember


Entered the Gates of Heaven on March 14, 2015 at the age of 89.  Survived by her sister Helen Walker, brothers Albert and Bill (Joyce) and many nieces and nephews, grandnieces and grandnephews and their children.  Predeceased by her mother and father William M Stratton and Mary Isabella (Clarke).

Frances was born in Kelowna and after high school attended Stenographer school in Vernon.  She then worked for the Capital News in Kelowna and her lifetime career was with the Bank of Montreal until she retired.  Fran was a founding member of Evangel Tabernacle, an outgoing personality in the community and knew many prominent business individuals on a first name basis.  Fran was also fun loving and purchased a brand new Ford Mustang in 1966.  Many young nephews were envious over that car which she drove well into her 70’s.

Hwy 33, Kelowna, BC with Reverend Wayne Siewert officiating.  Interment to follow in Kelowna Memorial Park Cemetery.  In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to Cal Bombay Ministries to South Sudan and Uganda, PO Box 22021 Brantford, ON N3S 7V1
