Fran Kirshenbaum

Fran played 14 holes on a magnificent fall day. The balls were straight and sure. She had the breezes blowing in the right direction, her good friends beside her, and a sweet tune on her lips. We have chosen to recall that she passed away on that day, happily, easily with images of her grandkids and beautiful great grandbabies in her heart.
Fran was 90 years very young. She was strong and brave. Our athlete, musician, and bridge whiz. She was an adoring mom to Harris (Richard) and Elaine Newman (Fred), Bubie to Ricky, (Mhairi), Sam (Kim), Jesse (Sonali) and Sarah (Matt). Great “Bubie Fran” to Naomi and Dorothy, sister to Al Lax (Becky) and Ruth, Aunt to Lorne, Zane, Matthew and Michael, Great Aunt, and beloved friend to many heartbroken people.
With grateful blessings, we say goodbye now, and pray that she is with her beloved husband Davie and son Gary.
She would have appreciated your donation to Eli’s Place, 2 Edith Drive, Suite 703, Toronto M4R 2H7, 416-483-4807, Temple Sinai Congregation, or The Toronto Mandolin Orchestra.
