Zimmer, Frances Irene

With great sadness the family of Frances Zimmer announces her passing April 9, 2011 taken from us suddenly in Vernon, B.C. at the age of 76.

Frances left us the way she lived all her life doing things her way, living every day to the fullest. She had a force all her own, a real free spirit. She will be deeply missed.

Frances had survived cancer twice, raised her family on her own. She began her career in Surrey as a court clerk and over time became a Justice of the Peace before retiring. She enjoyed camping, fishing, travel, dancing, and had recently moved to the Okanagan to enjoy her family and new found friends. Survived by her daughter Sherry and husband Alec, son Frank and wife Irene, and her beloved dog Max, her brother Gerald Pape and wife Ines, along with nieces and nephews. A service was held April 13, 2011 at Our Lady of the Valley in Coldstream. The family would also like to express its appreciation to all the people who welcomed her to Vernon and special thanks to the staff at Polson Specialty, Vernon Jubilee Hospital, Interior Health Homecare, Gateby Daybreak, Mind in Motion, Dr. Peter Henley, Dr. A Cader.
