GEORGE PORTEOUS FRAME (published on February 14, 2009)



GEORGE PORTEOUS FRAME November 29, 1936 February 10, 2009 After a courageous battle with cancer, it is with great sadness that we announce the death of George Frame on Tuesday, February 10, 2009 at the age of 72 years. Remaining to forever cherish George's memory are his loving wife Gayle (nee Morris) of 46 years; son Rob (Carole); grandchildren, Austin, Hayley and Ryan; his daughter Meredith; his brother Alex (Dyanne); brother-in-law Peter (Terri); and numerous nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his father George and mother Susan. George was born in Coatbridge, Scotland and emigrated to Canada with his family, at age 13. He graduated from Winston Churchill High School in Scarborough. At age 18, he joined the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. He served in numerous postings in Manitoba and the Northwest Territories before returning to Virden, MB., where he met his wife, Gayle. They were married in 1962 and over the next six years had their two children. After postings in Ontario and Manitoba, he retired from the RCMP after proudly serving for 35 years. After retirement, George worked for several years at St. Charles Country Club, which helped improve his handicap. He also belonged to the RCMP Veterans' Association from the time he retired until the date of his death. His love for the game of golf and the RCMP, inspired him to work alongside a close friend each summer in organizing the Farmer Fred Slain Peace Officer's Golf Tournament at Warren, MB. For many years, George attended the Manitoba Moose hockey games as a season ticket holder, was also an avid reader and never left a crossword puzzle unfinished. A celebration of George's life will be held on Saturday, February 21 at 2:00 p.m. in the Ness Avenue Baptist Church, 2700 Ness Avenue. Interment will take place at the RCMP cemetery in Regina, SK at a later date. Special thanks to Drs. Milner, Lee, Harris and McClure, and the nursing staff at Grace Hospital and Riverview, as well as many dear friends, for their unwavering support through this difficult time. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in George's memory to CancerCare Manitoba, 675 McDermot Avenue, Winnipeg, MB R3E 0V9.
