Frances Frankie Lois Epp

October 9, 1943 - October 20, 2015


Epp, Frances Lois ‘Frankie’

1943 – 2015

It is with heavy hearts that the family of Frankie announces her passing in Calgary on October 20, 2015 at the age of 72.  After many health struggles throughout her life, Frankie went peacefully in her sleep. 

Frankie had a strong will and was determined to fight her health issues as long as she did.   She never let them impact her ability to love life.   She enjoyed many years of travelling south in the winter, along with many cruises and vacations with her friends.   Her passion was music.  When walking into her home in Nelson, chances were great that Elvis would be playing, scrabble board would be on the table and cookies would be baking.  

She was proud to call Nelson her home.  She spent most of her life there, whether at her house in town or summers at the cabin on Kootenay Lake.

She loved people and was always willing to lend a helping hand or deliver a tin of her famous baking.   She loved to have fun and most importantly to laugh.  She will be greatly missed by all who had the pleasure of calling Frankie a friend.    There is no other ‘Frankie’.

She is survived by her two sons: Mark Pruden (Jeannie) of Comox, BC and Mark’s daughter Kelsey and her husband Cory Walters of Spruce Grove, AB.   Mike Pruden (Linda) and their daughter Madeline of Calgary; her ‘adopted’ daughter Yuka Shimomoto of Tokyo, Japan; her sisters Debbie (Tom) Boucher of Coquitlam, BC; Cathy (Bob) O’Brien and Charlotte Baglole both of Maple Ridge, BC; cousin Pat (Ben) Audet whom she thought of as her sister.   She is also survived by cousins, nieces, nephews as well as an aunt and uncle in Vancouver, BC.
