It is with great sorrow that the family announce the passing of Frances Simone Dew, at the age of 80. She passed peacefully in her sleep on February 8th, 2019 at Health Sciences North. Cherished wife of Donald Dew (predeceased). Loving mother to John, Chris and Kathy. Beloved Nanny to Christa (Robbie), Grant (Christine), Justin, Brandon, Kielen, Eric, Ricky and Jessica. Dearest daughter of Arthur and Muriel Giroux both predeceased. Adored by her siblings Bud (Marge), Sue (Pieter), both predeceased, and Una (Larry). She will be deeply missed by all her nieces and nephews.
Frances taught elementary school in Sudbury for over 30 years. She loved teaching a great deal, and touched the lives of each of the students who entered her classroom.
Frances spent much of her retirement at her camp in Ludgate, with both her children and grandchildren. She was always up for a rousing game of Canasta or Crib, or a challenging Scrabble match. She also loved to read – even as her eyesight deteriorated, she continued enriching her mind with audiobooks. In the last several years, she also spent her time playing Bridge with a wonderful group of woman who will miss her very much.
The family would like to extend a very special thank you to all of her friends at the Bonic, for all of the love and support they’ve shown her. To the staff at Health Sciences North, a heartfelt thank you for the excellent care she received in her final days.
A mass in celebration of her life will be held on Thursday, February 21st, 2019 at 11am in Holy Redeemer Church (1887 Bancroft Drive, Sudbury) followed by a small gathering.
In lieu of flowers, donations to the Maison McCulloch Hospice would be greatly appreciated.
Arrangements entrusted to Sudbury Park Lawn Cremation Services.

In loving memory of Aunty Frances. I will always remember her chatting and singing while making our lunch at camp, as we sat reading comics.
John, Kathy and Chris, thinking of you all at this time and sending you our love and hugs.
