Frances Ann Kendall
Born In: Isle aux Morts, Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada
Passed on: February 6th, 2013
On Wednesday, Feb. 6, 2013, we lost a great mother whose personality was 10 times her size who radiated love, caring, respect and strength.
Mom lived life to the fullest. She was born in Isle Aux Morte, N.L., and moved to Louisbourg in 1950, where she met her husband Kevin.
Mom was devoted to her church, choir, ACW. She was involved with the Fortress Senior Club where she danced, played bingo and cards all of which she loved. Mom was a wonderful baker. Mom will never be forgotten for her roles as George Jefferson and Sophia from the Golden Girls in her church skits.
Our beautiful angel has left behind to mourn her three children, Gary (Brenda), Kelly (Glenn), Claudette (Jim) Gale; her stepchildren, Albert (Jocelyn), Eugene (Karen), and Liam (Charlene). She also left to mourn her companion, James Goyetche, who she loved and cared for very much. Her grandchildren who were the loves of her life, Ryan (Ashley) and soon to be great-grandchild, Matthew (Shelly) and Dean (Deb), Kayla, Olivia, David and Emma. She is survived by her mother, Edith Jane Marsden; sister-in-law, Mary Marsden; sister, Lorraine Murphy; her best friend, Mary MacDonald, who she shared many cups of tea together, life long friends to the end. She is also leaving behind many beloved friends and extended family.
She was predeceased by her husband, Kevin, brothers, Walter and Dorman Marsden, father, Cecil Marsden, and good friend, Marion Hutt.
In lieu of flowers please make donations to the SPCA and St. Bartholomew’s Church.
May her memories wash over all of you and comfort you all. She will never be forgotten.
Visitation will be held Monday, Feb. 11, 2013, from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. at St. Bartholomew’s Church, Louisbourg. A memorial service will take place 10 a.m. Tuesday, Feb. 12, 2013, at St. Bartholomew’s Church with Rev. Laura McCue officiating. Interment will follow in church cemetery.
