Klein (Freedman), Frances
Passed away peacefully, surrounded by family, on Monday, September 4, 2017 at age 82 of cancer. Frances was a strong, independent woman who bravely faced challenges with determination and resourcefulness. A valued, kind and generous friend to many in Montreal, Ste. Anne-des-Lacs and Guelph. She will be remembered for always helping others.
Dearly missed by her children and their families: Cheryl, Mark, and Rachel Wallace of Guelph, Ontario; Ron, Michelle, Zachary, and Talia Freedman of Kingston, Ontario; Mitchel, Paula, Aaron, and Joel Freedman of Omagh, Northern Ireland. She was proud of her children. Her grandchildren gave her much delight and joy.
Predeceased by her husband, Elliott Kaufmann (2007) of Ste. Anne-des-Lacs, Quebec and her parents, three siblings and other special relatives.
Special thanks to the warm, caring staff at Hospice Wellington for helping the whole family during her last days. Thank you to Dr. Kate Miller for her exceptional and compassionate care. Thank you to her dear friends at Twin Towers for making her life in Guelph one of good times, fun adventures and great shopping trips. Thank you to Lori for being like family.
