Frances Rose (Haldenby) Worman was born on July 20,1924 on the family farm in the Silver Stream area with Dr. McQueen from Tisdale and Mrs. Bates, midwife, in attendance. She attended school at Silver Stream, staying with her grandparents during the week and going home on weekends. She was the oldest of 4 children born to Chester and Freda Haldenby. Frances married the love of her life Tom Worman on September 18, 1946 of Leacross. They were incredibly blessed to have had 68 years together. Their first home was in Tisdale, where their family of 3 were born. From there, the family took moves to Bjorkdale, Lloydminister, Melfort, and Humbolt where Tom retired. After retiring they returned to Melfort, spending 10 winters in Osoyoos, BC and spending their summers camping at Lower Fishing Lake and Greenwater Lake. Through this time they developed many new and lasting friendships. They enjoyed visiting and having coffee. You never left their home without having a cup of coffee and something to eat.

Frances was a stay at home mom raising her family. She babysat for many working moms and did custom sewing, grew a large garden which helped feed her family. She was a kind and gentle person who loved her family so very much, she loved her daughter in laws as much as she loved her children and each grandchild and great grandchild that came along. Each one was special to her and knew her love.
Frances entered Parkland Place in April, 2014 when Tom's health began to fail and he was unable to care for her at home. He was so reluctant to let her go, he said "she is my life". Frances retained that gentle spirit even in the face of this difficult change and always was grateful to anyone that visited her there, always saying she couldn't think of anything to say, that we would have to do all the talking but was glad we came. We are so grateful for all the wonderful caregivers she had at Parkland Place and the excellent care she received during the past 5 years.
Frances was predeceased by her parents, her husband Tom, daughter Betty and her sister Dorothy.
