FRANZEN – Ora Doris, born march 13 – 1918, passed peacefully in her sleep at Chemainus Health Care Center on May the 13th. Ora will be lovingly remembered by her son Glen (Wendy) Karin Franzen, Granddaughter Tracy (Andy) Macdonald, Great Grandchildren Nolan and Will, Grandsons Brad and Jamie. She was predeceased by her husband Earl (Bud) Franzen and her precious daughter Shannon Crotty. Ora was a beautiful pianist, worked for the Armed Forces for 27 years and took many foster children into her home. Also she enjoyed gardening, baking and knitting which she was happy to share with everyone. We would like to acknowledge the excellent care she received from all the staff in Chemainus. In particular our thanks to Dr. Doug Gee and Aquilla giving my mom great respect along with making sure she had many moments of laughter. She requested no service. However the family will be gathering at a later date to celebrate her life.
