Her husband, George, passed away in December 2017 and her son, Rodger, in October 2014. Besides her husband and her son she was predeceased by brothers, Arthur and Donald McLean, and sisters Janet Currie, Mary Pennington, Ruby Warner and Ella Gwynn.
Fannie worked at Callendar Nursing Home and became an RNA in 1970. After retirement she dedicated her time to checking in on and caring for her elderly Elizabeth Street neighbors for many years.
Fannie enjoyed camping and travelling with George. Florida was their winter destination and they enjoyed time at their trailer on Lake Huron during the summer. Of course with George selling snowmobiles no winter was complete without many trail rides with good friends. Fannie never passed up a card game and as George would say "she would play bridge 8 days a week".
Family and friends will be received at Melville Presbyterian Church on Saturday March 18, 2023 at 11 am for visitation and funeral service to follow at 12pm.
In lieu of flowers donations may be made to Huron Perth Alzheimer Society or charity of your choice.
