McCarthy; Frances Rita (nee Mitchell)

The family of Frances Rita McCarthy is very sad to announce her passing on October 23, 2015 after a short battle with cancer. She was 81 years old and was predeceased by her parents, Bert & Lois Mitchell, who were very active in the music community, with strong ties to the Beach Golf Club in Ladner. Fran, who was often called “Skipper” by her beloved husband Wayne, was the wife of an RCMP member, an RN in her early years and was a retired Real Estate Agent in Maple Ridge, along with being an active participant of the Red Hat Society in Ajijic, Mexico. She will be lovingly remembered by her husband, Wayne; her children, Mitch, Bob, Karen and Craige; her 2 daughters-in-law, Caroline and Renee; her son-in-law, Greg, along with her 7 grandchildren, Brad, Brian (Tayler), Ian, Cooper, Emily, Scott & Sydney; and her great grandson, Greyson. As per her wishes, there will be no memorial service, and in lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to the BC Cancer Society,
