Frances Rose Stephens

STEPHENS, Frances Rose - I'm saying "See you later, Friends" as I have left to join my parents, Helen and Oscar Stephens, sister Joan and brother-in-law Alex McDonald, brother Carl Stephens, nephew Dale McDonald and soul mate Robert. Looking forward to hanging out with my numerous aunts and uncles, too. If you hear a commotion, it's not winter thunder, it's laughter. When the Perron clan gets together - look out. Especially those girls, my Mom and Aunties. I took my leave around 1:15 a.m. on December 2. Yep, slipped out in the night. Like a bandit. As my niece Shelly tells everyone, I'm running and jumping like I couldn't do here. Love the feeling of the grass beneath my feet. I'll miss family and friends left behind, but it was time to go. I've got people to see and lots to do. Now I can swim instead of wade, ditch the wheelchair, kick my brother's butt and dance with Joan like everyone's watching! Might even play some basketball with nephew Dale. I know I left on short notice, so those I didn't get to see before taking off on my new adventure, I love you, too. Thanks to Dr. S. and all the staff at Birchwood. You were like family over the 22 years I spent there. Thanks to all my family and friends for surrounding me with love and laughter as I prepared to leave. That was a beautiful and entertaining send-off. Left to miss my smile are nieces Theresa Stephens, Shelly McBride and Telayne Kobernyk and nephew James Stephens and their families. Also left behind are numerous cousins and friends. Please get together for a celebration of my life, a life that you enriched, taking place at Birchwood Terrace from 2 - 4 pm on Thursday, January 3, 2019. When you're driving by Station Hill in Keewatin, look up and when you see the eagles, think of me. I'm free. 13319191

I believe Frannie and I were friends back 1962/1963.I was in a receiving home in Lakeside and I think our houseparents knew the Stephens family.Frannie and myself,we used to go to the Wright theater on Fri nites/movie and then we would go to, across from Allen's pharmacy,place where they had pinball machines,juke box,a lil dance floor and tables n'chairs.We would walktoFrannie's house on top of the hill.Fran was alot of fun,kind.When I see an eagle for sure,Fran,I will wave and say "Hi,friend"
She will be missed

Yes, what a great obituary. You were such an inspiration to us all. I'll always remember Franny taking me out for an orange crush or seven up while I was little. Rest in peace dear cousin.

I grew up with Aunt Helen, Uncle Oscar, Joan, Carl & Frannnie and they were our closest relatives. I saw Frannie only a few times over the last 70 years but she always brought joy to our visit. Sad to hear of her passing but she now is free of her bonds. Thanks to the person who wrote the wonderful & caring eulogy.
