Obituary of Frances Faye Coutu

Please share a memory of Frances to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.

With sadness and sorrow the angels came to take her away on Thursday, December 23, 2021. After a lengthy, painful battle with cancer, Frannie passed away at ARCH at the age of 62.


Predeceased by her mom and dad, Audrey and Donald Coutu. With broken hearts she leaves behind her siblings Barry, Tim, Donna (Tim), Joe (Sharon), Mark, Jamie (Gina), Robert, Matt (Leslie), Chris (Sharon) and Philip (Sandra). Frannie will be missed by her many special nieces and nephews.


Thank you so much to Dr. Buehner for her compassion and wonderful care, PSW’s Christina and Brit for their loving care. Also, a big thank you to Frannie’s nurse Mike Jacobson for being there every step of the way, for your compassion, tenderness, and concern.  You were very special to her Mike. Thank you to the ARCH family for the ongoing compassion, comfort and care you gave to Frannie over the last eight days.


As per Frannie’s request, cremation has taken place. Memorial donations to Tracy’s Dream, ARCH or the SSM Humane Society would be greatly appreciated. Arrangements entrusted to Northwood Funeral Home Cremation and Reception Centre (942 Great Northern Road, 705-945-7758).




 I was chosen today

I’m learning to fly

The world took me away

But please don’t you cry


I chose you today

To try to be strong

So please don’t you cry

And don’t say I’m gone


When you’re feeling alone

Just remember my love

I’m up near the stars

Looking down from above


Remember my love

In a moment you’ll see

That I’m still here beside you

When you’re thinking of me


Love You Bye
