Surrounded by the love of her family, peacefully Frances passed away at the age of 63 in the early morning of September 7, 2020. Frances is now reunited with her parents Edward & Esther Hogg (nee Barnes), father-in-law Gerald Duguay, niece Dianna Hogg and great nephew Jack Davey.

Frances leaves her loving husband of 33 years, Raymond Duguay with many great memories that will be cherished forever. The strength and unconditional love she had for her children Dena Fortin, Jason (Jennifer) Fleming and Travis (Candice) Duguay, will always be in their hearts and a true inspiration for them all. The undeniable pride and love was a gift that her grandchildren Alanis, Blair, Abigayle, Andrew, Adam, Zoey, Mason and River will carry forever in their hearts.

God saw she was getting tired and the cure was not to be. So He put his arms around her and whispered, “Come with Me.” With tearful hearts we watched her fade away. Although we loved her dearly, we could not make her stay. A golden heart stopped beating, hard working hands laid to rest. God broke our hearts to prove to us, He only takes the best.
