FRANCES SHEPS (published on September 08, 2009)

FRANCES SHEPS Peacefully at age 95, Frances Sheps passed away on Saturday, September 5, 2009 at the Health Sciences Centre. She is survived by her sons, Sidney and Philip (Heather); daughter-in-law Joanne (Larry); grandchildren, Jeffrey (Tara), David and Laura (Lisa); brother Ben (Dolly); and sisters-in-law, Sophie and Miriam; great-grandchildren, Sammy and Benny, and many nephews, nieces and those who cared for and about her. She was predeceased by her husband Sam; parents, Harry and Eta Kopelow; brothers and sisters-in-law, Hymie and Esther, Maurice and Ethel, and Harold; and her daughter-in-law Pat. Frances was born in Winnipeg on March 11, 1914. In June 1937, she married her husband, Sam, and together they raised their two sons within the Jewish community of Winnipeg. She was the matriarch of the Sheps/Kopelow families and the strength upon which each and every member of the families and countless friends relied. Her indomitable spirit through life's adversities was everyone's support system, and her love and care was limitless. Frances spent many years in the grocery, clothing and jewellery sales - loving every moment in connecting with people - truly a people person who had a wonderful ability to attract others to her. The family would like to thank Doctors Barron, Tufescu and Siddiqui and especially the staff in the SICU at Health Sciences Centre. All were so kind and caring to Frances. Graveside funeral at Shaarey Zedek Cemetery, Tuesday, September 8, 2:30 p.m., followed by meal of condolence at Shaarey Zedek Synagogue. Donations may be made in Frances' name to the Jewish Foundation of Manitoba.
