Frances L’HEUREUX

L’HEUREUX; Frances (nee Clarke). April 18, 2014. It is with a profound sense of loss that we share the passing of Frances (Fran) L’Heureux, beloved mother, grandmother, great grandmother, sister, aunt and friend. After an all too brief battle with Multiple System Atrophy (MSA), Fran passed peacefully on April 18th with her family by her side. She is survived by her daughters Charmaine (Wes), Nadine (Gerald), Nikki (Kevin), son Chuck (Darcy, Kristy, and Kathleen), and step-son Marc (Colette and family): grand-children Neil, Amanda, Braeden, Dustin, Aja, Kylee, Logan, Breanne, Elann, Sierra, Savannah, Cynthia and Makenzie: great-grandchildren Cassidy and Kai and extended family. She was predeceased by her parents, Francis and Helen Clarke, husbands, Marcel Dancoisne and Lloyd L’Heureux, son, Gary Dancoisne, sisters, Jean Steendahl and Leslie Carew, step-son Serge L’Heureux and grand-son-in-law Robert Manning. Fran’s most cherished times were spent surrounded by family, whether it was picnics in the park, Sunday brunches or Christmas day. Her garden also held a sense of pride; she loved spending time nurturing its design and growth and then reaping the rewards of its peace and serenity. The community of Fort Langley had become her home away from home over the past 30 years, where she enjoyed the many lasting relationships she built there. A Celebration of Life will be held at Fort Langley Golf Course 9782 McKinnon Crescent Langley, BC on Saturday May 3rd, 2014 at 1:00 pm. Thank you to all those medical professionals who provided care and support to Fran and her family. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Multiple System Atrophy – Parkinson’s Society Canada.
