Obituary of Patricia Irene Francis (Sullivan)
FRANCIS, Patricia Irene
It is with the heaviest of hearts that we announce the passing of our dear loving mother Patricia Irene Francis, late of Buena Vista, SK, who passed away suddenly on Friday September 6, 2019 at the age of 78 years. She was predeceased by her parents James and Alma Francis of McIntosh Street, Regina and her sisters Susan and Leslie. Patricia is survived by her three children Mikael (Fiona) Francis of Saskatoon, Kirkland Francis of Saskatoon, and Vinessa (Dallas) West of Winnipeg; grandchildren Calder, Patrick, James, and Ella; sisters Sharon (Ron) Janet, Virginia, and Laurel; as well as numerous nieces, nephews, extended family, and dear friends. Patricia was the most beautiful person, both inside and out. She loved and cared for all who were dear to her. Born in Regina on the 9th of February 1941, Patricia moved to Toronto in the early 1960s where she was a model, hostess and manager at some of the most popular spots in Toronto. She loved to come back to the prairies and bring her family the latest in big city fashion, treats, and Jazz music. Patricia returned to Regina in the late 1970s to raise her children, where they had a wonderful life in Argyle Park, made better by frequent trips to visit family at her beloved Qu’Appelle valley near Tantallon. Since 1996, Patricia resided at Buena Vista, where she lived her best life with her wonderful community of friends. For the past fifteen years, she looked forward to her annual family vacation at Sunset Beach, Crooked Lake, SK, where she enjoyed the company of her family all together and seeing her special friends and family from the area. A Celebration of Patricia’s Life will be held at South Shore School, 1515 7th Avenue, Regina Beach, SK on Saturday, September 28, 2019 at 2:00 p.m. Flowers gratefully declined. Donations in her memory may be made to the Sunset Beach Playground/Park Reserve Project by contacting Jessica at 1-306-531-6373.
