BLANCHFIELD, Frances (Fran)
November 1950 - December 2012
Retired Teacher - OCSB
It is with heavy heart that we announce the passing of Fran Blanchfield at home surrounded by family after a valiant and courageous struggle with pancreatic cancer. The disease was able to conquer her body but never her spirit. Left to mourn her death are her husband and best friend Brian Blanchfield, her daughter Stacey Simard, son of her heart Yves Simard and her grandchildren Lyndsey and Kathleen Simard. Frances was predeceased by her parents John Lawrence and Iphigenie Maheral; her in- laws Willard and Kathleen Blanchfield; and her sisters-in-law Rita Maheral, Christiane Maheral and Lisa Blanchfield. Left to grieve her death are her siblings: Beatrice & Emerson Timm, Clarence Maheral, Bernadette & Richard Piché, Raymond & Louise Maheral, Mary & Lionel Bastien, Helen & Eric Hodgins, Victor & Heather Maheral, Richard & Donna Maheral, Joan & Brent Dibartolo (Joan & Fran shared a very special and loving bond throughout life), John & Julie Maheral and Cathy & Yvon Chaussé; as well as her in-laws: Beverley & Raymond Dubeau, Brenda & Robert Pilon, Barry Blanchfield and Mark & Vicky Blanchfield. Visitations are at Ringrose Brothers Funeral Home, Campbells Bay, QC Sunday, December 30, 2012 from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. and 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. and Monday, December 31, 2012 after 9:30 a.m. Mass of Christian burial will take place at 11 a.m. in Otter Lake, QC at Saint Charles Borromeo Catholic Church. Interment of ashes will take place at a later date. Those wishing to make donations may do so to the Saint Charles cemetery fund or to Pancreatic Cancer Research at the Ottawa Hospital, General Campus. The family would like to express their gratitude to the wonderful doctors and nurses who fought along side Fran and provided her with support in the hospital and at home.
