HARTMIER, Frances Edith Hartmier - Obituary | Print |

HARTMIER, Frances Edith -

Hartmier_FranPeacefully, in Bracebridge, on May 29, 2014.

Frances rejoined the love of her life, the late Lawrence Ranney (February 18, 1985.) Sister of Marjorie, Mary, Gwendolyn and the late Douglas. Loving mother of Richard and Mary Lynn (Peter Elliott).

Much loved grandmother of Jordan (Katie), Nathan (Nadia) and Jacqueline (Andrew Willmore). Special great-grandma to Fiona, Brooke and Blake.

After WWII, Fran and Lawrie moved to Toronto. One weekend, they were out for a Sunday drive and came upon a village named Beaverton. They spied and fell in love with a bright red Five-to-a-Dollar store and decided to buy it. Frances and Lawrie worked hard together and prospered and Beaverton proved the perfect place to raise a young family.

Over the years, they contributed greatly to their community and forged life-long friendships. It was a wonderful life. Fran moved to Bracebridge several years ago to be closer to family; however, Beaverton would always be her home.

Family was everything. We will all cherish happy memories of time spent together.

Private family internment has occurred.

As an expression of sympathy, memorial donations can be made to the South Muskoka Memorial Hospital Foundation.

Do not mourn me
For I have not left you
Look into the eyes of my children
And you will find me there.

She met her husband at a dance and was engaged after six weeks and was married in August 2, 1952.  She enjoyed hosting and spending holidays with her friends and her brother Eugene and his wife Mary.

She worked very hard to raise her family and she took pride in everything she did. She was proud of her Polish heritage and was a member of the Polish Veterans Ladies Auxiliary and St. Hedwigs Catholic Church. After raising her family, she ventured into the working world working for Chrysler Canada.

Upon retirement she enjoyed her many trips to Hawaii with her best friend, husband Alek. She will be sadly missed by all who loved her so dearly.

A special thank you to the staff at Lavender Lane (Hillsdale Estates) for their care, comfort and compassion in her final weeks.
