Aileen Kerby Frank

March 1, 1914 – September 10, 2014


Aileen (Longworth) Frank passed away peacefully at the Madison Care Facility in Coquitlam on the beautiful sunny afternoon of Wednesday, September 10, 2014. Over the days prior to her passing she was surrounded by what gave her the most joy, her family.

Aileen, predeceased by her husband Floyd in 2002, is survived by her loving family, Jim (Heather), Tricia (Jack), Norman (Linda), Bob (Judy), her 10 grandchildren Jason, Shannon, Shelley, Lara, Lisa, Kyle, Deanne, Christi, James and Karen and their husbands/wives/partners and 7 great grandchildren Holland, Baylee, Katie, Danae, Elyse, Calder and Skylar.

Aileen will also be dearly missed by many nephews, nieces and their families and her wonderful friends all of whom were so close to Aileen’s heart.

There will be a private graveside service on July 31. This brief internment service will be followed by a Celebration of Life to be held on Friday, July 31, 2015 at 2:00 p.m. at Heritage Park Museum. Following the Celebration of Life service, there will be a Strawberry Tea. Anyone who wishes to join this celebration of Aileen Frank’s life is most welcome.

If you wish, please send memorial donations to the Terrace Happy Gang Centre, Terraceview Lodge Residential Care Facility or the Knox United Church (Terrace) Women’s Guild. Please feel free to sign Aileen’s guestbook on-line at the Province.

The following poem was selected by Aileen’s great granddaughter Baylee:


Bright seashells on the sand.

The sun goes down but gentle warmth

Still lingers on the land.

The music stops and yet it lingers on

In sweet refrain.

For every joy that passes

Something beautiful remains.”
