FRANCES VALLEE WALSH (aka Françoise Vallée) died peacefully, with her two children by her side, on July 22, 2019 at Princess Margaret Hospital, at the age of 75.
An independent and indomitable spirit, Frances had recently retired from her career as an actress and prolific French and English voice talent. She loved her family, her friends, her dogs, living on her farm and managing her land herself, happily clearing brush, mowing paths with her riding mower, carting things around in her Gator, or walking through the fields with the dogs at her side.
Frances was diagnosed with Breast Cancer in May of 2018, and learned that it had metastasized to her bones in April of 2019. After fourteen months of fighting the disease and showing incredible bravery in the face of considerable pain, she left this world. We are broken hearted by the loss of our mother, but we are grateful she was spared further pain.
She was preceded in death by her father, Mark, her mother Marie-Paule, her sister Bridget (Biddy), and her partner, Uku. She is survived by her children, Kinch and Amy, her grandsons Caleb and Shane, her daughter-in-law Kelly, her sister Kathleen (Kitty), her brother Bradley, her sister-in-law Shelly, many beloved nieces and nephews as well as great-nieces and great-nephews.
