Frances MacNeil

It's with great sadness to announce that my mom, Frances "Fran" MacNeil, passed away peacefully by my side Tuesday, May 29, 2018 at 10:45 am. She was not only my Mom, but also my best friend, and grandmother to my four children, Weston, Bethannee, Mitchem and Myndee-Lee. She was born on December 23, in Port Hood, Nova Scotia, leaving there when she married and went to Ontario.

Mom raised three children, Harry Jr., Brette and Wendy. Survivors include her sister, Ruth Bailey, in Ottawa, ON; and many grandchildren, nieces, nephews and cousins, all in Canada. She was predeceased by her husband of 24 years, Harry MacNeil in 1978; her second husband of 20 years, Roy Wills in 2018; and her second daughter, Wendy, to leukemia in 1994. Mom is friend to all she met, was a great cook, and could bake the best apple pie. She was a wonderful animal lover, loved to travel and was a beautiful person inside and out. She will be tremendously missed by all whose lives she touched.

I'd like to take the opportunity to thank the Dusckas Funeral Home, 2607 Buffalo Rd., with their compassion, expertise and knowledge of handling Mom's funeral arrangements. We will forever be grateful.

Donations can be made to the ANNA Shelter, 1555 West 10th Street, Erie, PA 16511, or Because You Care, Inc., PO Box 54, McKean, PA 16426, or the Humane Society of NW PA, 2407 Zimmerly Road, Erie, PA 16506, or to the charity of one's choice.

I love you, Mom, with all my heart until we meet again. XxOo
