Frances (MacMullin) Gaigneur, 79 Reserve Mines It is with heavy hearts that we the family announce the passing of our beautiful mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister, aunt and friend, Frances Gaigneur, age 79 on January 14, 2022, at home surrounded by her loving family. Born in Glace Bay, Frances was the daughter of the late Margaret “Peggy” Young and Tom O’Brien. In mother’s earlier years she worked at the Glace Bay Grill until she met her husband, Richard; they married and raised their family in Reserve Mines. Ma enjoyed the simple things in life, such as watching her Soap Operas, Daily Game Shows, Bingo in her earlier years, and a good cup of tea when someone stopped by to visit. She also looked forward to her Sunday drives with Da, and family gatherings were her favorite. Mom is survived by her six children: Richard (Winnie), Debbie (Lester), Margaret (Greg), Eddie, John, Michael (Judy). Her 13 wonderful grandchildren and her precious 10 great-grandchildren; sisters: Carol (James), and Darlene; brothers, Aubrey, and Glen; Frances is also survived by her special friend and sister-in-law, Diane (Mickey); brother-in-law, Peter (Henrietta), several nieces and nephews, cousin and friend Celie and her fur baby “Precious”. Frances was predeceased by her husband Richard “Butch” Gaigneur in 2017, and sister Marilyn. The family would like to thank all Physicians, nurses, and staff, who have helped to care for our mother, including Homecare, VON, Dr. Gordon Yeung and Staff of Renal Dialysis. Funeral arrangements have been entrusted to T.J. Tracey Cremation and Burial Specialists, 370 Reserve St., Glace Bay. 902-849-4199.
