Passed in: Kamloops, British Columbia, Canada
Passed on: January 1st, 2014

Mrs. Frances Mae Bloom passed away peacefully in Kamloops on January 1, 2014, aged 90 years.

Survived by her loving husband Jack, daughter Janice (Lindsey) of Kamloops, sons Michael (Heather) of Kamloops, Andy (Hield) of Abbotsford and Steve (Sarah) of Kamloops, grandchildren Wendy, Gina, Kirsten, Kimberly, Erica, Alison, Nicolas, Cara, Steen and great grandchildren William, Addison, Jacob and Geoffrey, nieces and nephews, as well as many friends and relatives.

She was predeceased by her brothers and sisters Don, Jim, Teddy, Betty and Ivy.

Frankie was an amazing woman - she did so many things well around the home and set a shining example of how to be a good person. She was a fabulous cook; she created the best pickles ever and could make anything out of fabric or wool! Crosswords and reading were her daily passions; consequently she was up to date on current affairs. She was our role model in her quest to take care of her body and mind and worked hard to stay fit and active.

After spending her early years of marriage at home raising our family, her primary activity became golf. She joined Dad on the links and became an excellent golfer! She enjoyed the fairways and greens at the Kamloops Golf and Country Club as well as spending many a winter golfing down south. Family was always important to Mom and when she was not golfing she was a sought after babysitter for her grandchildren. She taught us to treat others with respect, to care for others and take care of our own health to lead a happy life! She and Dad lived this way and set a great example for us all as they recently celebrated their 66th wedding anniversary.

A Celebration of Life will be held on Saturday, January 11, 2014 at 1:00 p.m. at the Schoenings Funeral Home with Pastor David Schumacher officiating.

Should friends desire, donations may be made to Alzheimer.ca

The family would like to thank the wonderful people of Ponderosa Lodge especially the Second Floor staff for their loving and compassionate care of Mom and the care and respect we were all extended.
