Frances Oakley Obituary

Oakley Frances, passed away peacefully at Victoria Manor Nursing Home, Lindsay Ontario on Friday march 6th 2020 at the age of 102. Born in Westville, Nova Scotia to Alice (nee MacDonald) and George Cassidy (both immigrated from Royal Tunbridge Wells, England). Fran remembers her young childhood with many loving siblings growing up in Wayne and then Drumheller, Alberta. Having gained great talent as a musical and show family, Fran had many qualifications to enlist in the Royal Canadian Army show overseas in WWll, Helping the allied forces regain some small semblance of home comfort amongest their heavy battles of war. Probably a romance story there somewhere, she fell in love with the trumpet player in the band. Fran was a many year member of the Scarborough Embroidery Guild and a member of the Bobcaygeon Settlement House Art Club. Her love of everything artistic and her infectious laugh will be on the minds of everyone who knew her. Loving and devoted wife of the late Arthur William Oakley (said trumpet player, married 50 years).  Dedicated mother of the late Ronald James Oakley and younger son James William Oakley. Fran will be sadly missed by her daughter in law, Earlene Oakley (Ron’s wife), two wonderful grandsons, Christopher (Sarah) and Tyler, Plus her great granddaughter Ivy. Also missed greatly by her many nieces and their families in British Columbia. In keeping with Frans wishes, no funeral service or memorial service will be held. If desired, memorial donations to the Alzheimers Society would be greatly appreciated.
