HOWLETT, Frances Mary (nee Quinto)
Peacefully at Kensington hospice in Toronto on Thursday, August 9 after a difficult year of failing health. She leaves behind her five children - Karen, Frank (Valerie), Bernard (Shari), Donna (Michael), and Brian (Judy) - her 12 grandchildren, two great-grandchildren and sisters Elvera Lamie and Bernice Holmes. She was 89 and predeceased by siblings Marie Densmore and Joseph Quinto. She was happiest surrounded by family, her dining room table overflowing with her children and many nieces and nephews. She embraced life's challenges with grace, strength and a ready smile, raising five children on her own. A special thanks to Dr. Julian Wiegelmann at Toronto Western Hospital and the entire staff at Kensington for making mom's final days so peaceful. Visitation at R.S. Kane funeral home, 6150 Yonge St., on Sunday, August 12 from 2 to 4 p.m. and 7 to 9 p.m. Funeral mass at St. Gabriel's Catholic church, 670 Sheppard Ave. E., on Monday, August 13 at 10 a.m. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Kensington hospice.
