Mum also worked at Children's Hospital when her children were older. She was very active in sports, enjoying mixed baseball, curling and bowling. She was very active in the local community centre. She loved gardening, and always had the nicest lot in any campground they parked their trailer at.
The family would like to thank the staff at Bethania for the wonderful care she received while residing there.
In honouring Mum's wishes, a private family memorial service and interment will be held at a later date.
In lieu of flowers, donations in Frankie's memory may be made to Bethania Personal Care Home, 1045 Concordia Avenue, Winnipeg, MB R2K 3S7 to the Recreation Program for beloved cats, Peppy and Mitzi.

Dear Gary, Please accept our sincere sympathies in the loss of your Mother. These are tough times and such a difficult time to lose someone. Please know we are thinking of you. Sincerely Judy, Terry & Randy Miller - Posted by: Judy Miller (Friend of family) on: Apr 14, 2020
We got to know Frankie when my Mom sat at her table. Recently I was pleased to see her at Bingo and enjoyed helping her when her daughters were not there. I am so sad to hear of her passing and will miss seeing her and her daughters when I go back to Bethania as a volunteer. I will always remember my last visit with her on March 3rd and she gave me a big hug and kiss on the cheek. A wonderful memory I will treasure. - Posted by: Sandra Black (Friend) on: Apr 14, 2020
The Shotbolt family were our neighbours on Manhattan Avenue. One of the memories I have is your mom and dad walking down the street holding hands. I still see that picture in my mind and I’m sure you will all take comfort in knowing that they are together again, holding hands. Love from Karen Dobson - Posted by: Karen Asgeirson (Dobson) (Neighbour) on: Apr 13, 2020
Frankie was one of my mother's neighbours "down the hall" on the 400 wing at Bethania. When visiting my mother I'd almost always cross paths with Frankie. She was usually around-out and about in various common areas, keeping an eye on things, or participating in a program or activity. Chatting with Frankie was always a pleasure. She was interested in others' well-being. She had a warm greeting, kind words, or a friendly wave anytime my mother or I happened to meet her. Frankie's positive attitude and presence will be greatly missed by her Bethania neighours. Sincere condolences to Frankie's family on the loss of your mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and sister. - Posted by: Joan Duerksen (Friend) on: Apr 11, 2020
We were so saddened by the news of Frankie's passing. Frankie had become a good friend to Dinos mom Sylvia at Bethania and a friend to us as well. There was something very special about Frankie, and she was just so easy to talk to. It didnt take long to see what a warm and caring lady she was. We will always be grateful to her for the friendship she had with Sylvia at Bethania. It wont be the same without her. We are going to miss her very very much. With condolences...Linda, Dino and Sylvia Plawucki - Posted by: Linda and Dino Plawucki (Friend) on: Apr 11, 2020
To the Shotbolt / Morton Families, My sincere condolences for the passing of Frankie. I miss my good friend John and now he has another Family member with him. I'm sure there will be lots of laughter in Heaven these days as there was here on earth when the Family got together. God Bless. Craig Ross Stonewall - Posted by: Craig Ross (Friend) on: Apr 11, 2020
We came to know Frankie as a neighbour to our mother in the Bethania PCH. In fact, she occupied the very same room my father did some years ago... We appreciated her as a kind lady, always aware of people and happenings around her; always caring. We got especially close to her for her care and attention to the house cats... Peppy and Mitzi... We will miss her. We know she will be also be missed by many others at Bethania. Please accept our sincere condolences for the loss of this wonderful lady. - Posted by: Carmen and Rick Dondo (Friends) on: Apr 11, 2020
I was so fortunate to have worked for Frankie several years ago. Frankie, as I called her, was one of the kindest, sweetest, most thoughtful ladies that I had ever had the pleasure of not only working for but knowing. When I used to go into Frankie’s place to help her it was never like being at work but more like helping a friend. I’ve thought ever so fondly of Frankie over these years and was saddened upon reading of her passing. Frankie was wonderful and will be missed by many people. - Posted by: Kim (Former HomeCare worker ) on: Apr 11, 2020
