was surrounded by his children as he completed his life’s journey on Sunday, September 29, 2013 at Hospice Residential House.  He is now reunited with the love of his life, his wife Madeline (nee Vermeulen) (Feb, 1997). Loving father of Bernadette Fuerth, Brian and wife Karen, Sue Sherk and the late Tim (2013) and Steve and wife Jennifer.

Francis will also be fondly remembered and missed by his large extended family. Francis was born on the family farm in Woodslee on December 31, 1935 to Charles and Marie Fuerth. He stayed and worked on the farm helping his parents and the farm eventually became his own, where he and Madeline raised their four children. He had a love of the land but his passion was his family especially his grandchildren. He was a kind and gentle man with an infectious smile who will be greatly missed. The family would like to give special thanks to all the “angels” who offered their time and support and to the staff at Hospice for providing a peaceful ending to his journey.
