McLEAN, Frances Marie (nee Neary)

Passed away on Saturday, April 4, 2020 at the age of 82. Predeceased by loving husband for nearly 52 years, Raymond McLean (2016). Loving mother of Kelly Obdeyn (Rodney), David McLean (Laura) and Allison McLean. Cherished grandmother of Laura, Spencer, Cameron and Owen. Dear sister of Helen Rowan (Barry), late Michael Neary and late John Neary. Fran will also be missed by many nieces, nephews, extended family and numerous friends. She worked for many years as a Registered Nurse for Joseph Brant Hospital and VON, and later went on to educate in her field at Mohawk College. Fran was also a passionate volunteer for many years with the Society of St. Vincent de Paul through her home parish at Holy Rosary Roman Catholic Church in Burlington. A special thank you to the dedicated staff at the Burlington Dialysis Centre for their care and attention. Fran will be remembered for her vitality, wit, doggedness, infectious laugh, passion, and general love of life – as evidenced by her love of books, bridge, golf, Third-Age Learning and various other pursuits and the many lifelong friends she gathered along the way. As per her wishes, private Cremation has taken place. Visitation and Memorial Mass to Celebrate Fran’s Life will be held at a later date. Information for services can be found on the funeral homes website as details become available. As an expression of sympathy and in lieu of flowers, donations to the Society of St. Vincent de Paul would be sincerely appreciated by the family.

Dear Kelly, I am so very sorry to hear of your mom’s passing. Moms are special and can’t be replaced. Your mom helped me when I first started working at VON. I shadowed her and then worked in the same part of Burlington. She was very kind to everyone she looked after. We played golf together and I loved her sense of humour! She loved her family and we’d share stories. Please convey my condolences to the rest of your family. May she Rest In Peace in the loving arms of the Lord. Hugs, Lynn Douglas

Dear Allison, Kelly, David and your families,
It is with great sadness that I learned of Fran's death. Despite her health challenges Fran loved life and taking part in the many activities that she cared about and took part in even when she may not have been feeling well. She had a deep faith and she lived her faith in her commitment to charitable organizations, in particular the Society of Saint Vincent do Paul. Fran will be deeply missed by her many friends . With love and blessings, Jan xo
