Frances Sliva (Kwasny) was born Nov. 4, 1931 on the family farm in the Rama district. She was 1 of 10 children (6 brothers and 3 sisters).

Frances and Steve were united in marriage on Nov. 6, 1950 and were blessed with 2 children, Sylvia (Napady) and Dennis.

They started their life together taking over the family farm. Frances was a very hard worker and enjoyed gardening, cooking and baking especially during harvest time. She made sure no one went hungry.
In 1967 they moved to Yorkton where Mom worked at various jobs. Her last job was with the Yorkton Hospital as a baker which she enjoyed. She spent many hours caring for her flower garden and all her flower pots making sure that a weed could not be found.

In 1987 she was diagnosed with M.S. and in 1995 she suffered multiple strokes that failed her health. When she could no longer be cared for at her home she was admitted to the Kamsack Nursing Home in Dec. 2006 before making her permanent home at the Yorkton District Nursing Home in 2007.
While in the Nursing Home Mom enjoyed her visits from many family and friends. She especially enjoyed spending time with her grandchildren, great grandchildren & her great great granddaughter.
Mom enjoyed all the activities at the Nursing Home. She especially enjoyed the live entertainment as she loved music. She would always sing along when she could. You could always find Mom at her table colouring as that was her pass time or as she called it “her job”.

Mom’s day was not complete without her jewelry, powder (rouge as she would say) and of course her lipstick. It was very important for her to look her best every day. In spite of all of her health issues she remained positive and happy and would remind all of us to enjoy life while we can.
Over the years Mom made many new friends and she became like family to many of the staff. She loved to laugh and joke and share her stories with them. She embraced the Nursing Home as “her home” and enjoyed her time with her extended family.

Frances entered eternal life on August 2, 2020. Predeceased by her parents, William and Pauline Kwasny; her husband Steve Sliva; sister Ann Nazro; brothers Mike, Peter, Joe, Paul and Adolph Kwasny; Son-in-law Richard Napady; Sisters-in-law Sophie Kwasny, Mary Kwasny, Elsie Kwasny, Ida Kwasny, Caroline Diakow, Mary Ron, Helen Pelechaty, Elsie Sliva, Kassie Kwasny and Denise Bergeron; Brothers-in-law Walter Nazar, John Kniaz, John Dobko, Mike Sliva, Joe Pelechaty, Bill Diakow and Harry Ron.

My deepest sympathy for the loss of your loved one. I didn’t know Francis personally but I had known her from the YDNH for a few years. She had a such a kind heart and a smile that could brighten anyone’s day. I loved seeing her pictures after she finished colouring them. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.
