Frances Jean McCutcheon (nee Kingdon) died in the Boyne Lodge on January 1, 2024, at the age of 89 years. 

Frances grew up on a farm near Basswood with her parents, Elsie and William Kingdon, and seven brothers and sisters.  After high school, Frances attended business college and worked in several businesses in Vancouver, Winnipeg, and Brandon.  She met her future husband, Jim, at Camp Wannakumbac, near Onanole, Manitoba, and they married on August 8, 1959.  Frances and Jim farmed at Homewood.  They raised three children, Allan, Robert, and Gaylene, and participated in church and community organizations. 

Frances loved nature and working outdoors.  She took her commitments seriously and was a conscientious community member and friend. 

Frances was predeceased by her husband, Jim McCutcheon, and her two sons, Robert Ian and Allan Glen. 

Frances leaves to mourn her daughter, Gaylene and son-in-law Mark, as well as three grandsons, Sam, Luke, and Robert (Allan).
