BROWN, Francella

It is with profound sadness we announce the passing of Francella on December 20, 2020 at the age of 83. She is now reunited in heaven with her husband Calvin. She will be forever missed by her 4 children, 26 grandchildren, 41 great-grandchildren, and 1 great-great-grandchild. Francella is predeceased by her 2 brothers Nathaniel & Reginal Phillips. Left to mourn are her 2 sisters Virgie & Darkie, 2 brothers Hubert & Percival, and many nieces & nephews and family members. Cherished by her 2 sons-in-law Garnett Thompson & Dennis Perrin and daughter-in-law Patricia. Francella will be remembered in the hearts of her family, relatives, and many friends.

A Private family Visitation will be held at Bernardo Funeral Home (2960 Dufferin St., south of Lawrence Ave. W.) on Wednesday January 6, 2020 from 3:00 – 6:00 p.m. The City of Toronto has moved into the more restricted ‘lockdown’ category during this pandemic. Face masks are mandatory and contact tracing information will be collected upon entering the building. Time slots for family attendees will be at a minimum of 15 minute intervals to allow for the disinfection of the funeral home between attendees.
