(March 26, 1931 – January 27, 2020)
In her 89th year, Frances died unexpectedly but peacefully in the Ottawa Civic Hospital on January 27, 2020. She was predeceased by her beloved husband, Bob, just 9 months ago. Frances was the much loved mother of Catherine (Ken), Robert (Marian), and Susan (Jeff) and the devoted grandmother of Eleanor, David (Jess), Emma (Kevin), Bob (Casey), Isabel (Travis), Sarah (Philip), Margaret and Katherine (Andrew) and great-grandmother of Audrey and Benjamin. The daughter of the late Evarista Binks and Kenneth Burns, Frances was predeceased by her siblings, Helen (Cecil), Bob (Jean) and Ken (Noriene). Frances is survived by her sisters and brothers in law, Helen (Frank), Jerry (late Shirley), Millie (late Charlie and Oscar) and John (Carol and late Patty), Giselle, Sylvia and Carol. She will be missed her cousin, George Binks (Rosemary) and many nieces and nephews.
Frances will be remembered for her strong Catholic faith and contributions to the Almonte community. Her commitment to her banking customers is still cited 24 years after her retirement. Frances was a music lover and enjoyed many varieties of dance. She and Bob loved square dancing and she could still buckle up her 1940’s tap shoes.
The Renwick family is very grateful for the wonderful care provided to her by the staff of Orchard View by the Mississippi. Mom was welcomed into the Orchard View community and enjoyed many new activities. In addition, thank you to Marie Dunn and Catherine Cameron for their Sunday support.
