Fanny Somers

October 1, 1930 — March 11, 2023

Fannie Somers passed away peacefully at Huronlea Home For the Aged, March 11, 2023, after a brief illness. She was in her 93rd year.

Fannie married George Somers on May 30, 1952. She was mother to sons Rodger (Dianne), Ross (Judy), Rick (Debbie), Randy (Tammy) and daughter Janice (Bill) Smith. She was grandmother to Robin Somers, Katrina Somers, Heather Logan, Scott Somers, Troy Gower, Adam Somers, Brett Somers, Sara Somers and Jordan, Zach and Logan Smith and she was great grandmother to 11 great grandchildren. She also leaves to mourn her sisters Doris Stuart and Grace Thompson.

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".
