In Loving Memory Of

Frances Doll


It is with sadness that we announce the passing of Frances Doll on Saturday, October 10, 2015, at her home in Points
West Living, surrounded by her family, at the age of 92 years.

Frances was born in Waterhole, AB, September 28, 1923 to Mari-Eva and Martin Heck. She was the second eldest of 14 children. Frances grew up in a time when hard work and helping others was the norm. She learned skills that would serve her well as a wife and mom and that she would pass on to her children and grandchildren.

Frances married Tony Doll on October 28, 1947, and together they raised 9 children. They started married life on a farm in the Friedenstal area, just outside of Fairview, AB. In June 1959, they moved to their own section of land, east of Grande Prairie, which was her home until Dad`s passing in 1998.

Frances is survived by her children: James, Dorothy and family, Charles, Eunice and family, Mary, Marvin Hansen and family, Marilyn, John Hawyluk and family, Bernice, Grant LaValley and family, Bill, Janet and family, Ben, Sherry and family, Elaine, Lonnie Cissell and family, David and family; Sisters: Catherine Basarab, Dee Hills, and Veronica Bast; Sisters In-Law: Claudette Tremblay-Heck, Marion Doll and Emily Logan.
