GEORGETTE (GEORGE) FRANKS
September 19, 1956 - January 5, 2022


It is with great sadness the family announces the passing of Georgette Franks on Wednesday, January 5, 2022, surrounded by family, at the age of 65 years.
George will be greatly missed by her husband Larry Franks; son Brian Labossiere; daughter Nicole (Darren) Rajotte. She was a nana to her grandchild Riley Rajotte, and Aunty George to Kristen Cabernal. George also leaves her mother Rachel; three sisters, Celine, Dolly and Lise, as well as her beloved sister-in-law Leah, numerous nieces, nephews, relatives and friends.
Geroge was predeceased by her father Lucien, brother Shiner, and stepfather Arthur.
We all love her deeply and will miss her terribly, but she will no longer be suffering and now, will be at peace.


"I lost my inspiration, my friend,
and most importantly my wife." - Larry


In keeping with George's wishes, cremation has taken place and due to restrictions on public gatherings a Celebration of Life will be held at a later date. Friends and family are welcome to share stories and sign the online book of condolences at ejcoutu.ca.

Condolences & Memories (13 entries)

  • My mom Georgette Franks - So much has gone through my mind since her passing, some days are better than others and some days are so very emotional. I miss her every day and still cannot believe that she is gone. My mom was not just my mom, she became my friend, my person that I would reach out to when I was down or happy or just needed somebody to talk to. If anyone knew my mom, you would know she was hard on the outside but so loving on the inside. She had a big heart, she was stubborn as hell, always liked to have the last word and was adamant about being right but in the end, she always meant well and she was always there. She was one of the strongest people I knew. It breaks my heart that I no longer have her to call and to have coffee with in the morning. It’s going to take a long time to do things different and not have her around, but I know today and moving forward she wants everyone that cared about her and loved her to go on and live the best life as possible. I never thought that cancer could be so drastic and such a horrible experience, but it also made me stronger and appreciated the last bit of time that I got to spend with her. I wouldn’t change it for the world, it changed my world and everything around me, of who I am and how I think and what I will do with my future. Life is definitely short and life can be taken so quickly. I am going to do my best to appreciate everyone around me and to be happy with what’s in front of me and not worry about the things in the past or the things that we have made mistakes with. We can’t change the past, that’s one thing my mom mentioned to me several times in the hospital. She does not want people to dwell on things that are out of our control and that we can’t change. As she put it to me “no guilt”. Yes, no one is perfect and yes, we all have faults but my mom wants me and everyone else in her life that she knew and touched to let all that go and enjoy life and forget about the what ifs or things that weren’t said or done. My mom was an inspiration to me. So many things that I didn’t realize she made me feel so proud of her. I wish I had more time with her and that I could have taken away her pain and suffering. I will miss her terribly but will do my best to move on and make her proud. I love you mom always - Posted by: Nicole Rajotte (Daughter) on: Jan 27, 2022
