Obituary of Mary Frances Walshe


It is with great sadness that the family announces the passing of Frances on October 24, 2022.  Born on March 11, 1949, the daughter of the late Patrick and Anna (Blackburn) Walshe, Frances was predeceased by her sister, Rose (Leon) Richmond and leaves behind her brothers, Patrick (Patricia) Walshe and Daniel (Linda) Walshe. She will be missed by her dearly loved nieces, Emma and Julie, her nephews, Andrew, Ian and Liam and her American Rinder cousins with whom she spent many summers in Muskoka.


Frances was a graduate of Earl Haig Collegiate and Seneca College. She began her career as a teacher and went on to work in retail and fundraising for many not-for-profit groups.


Frances struggled with many physical and emotional issues for the last half of her life. She faced these obstacles with bravery and good spirits. Special thanks to her caregiver, Kim, for all her help during this time.
