This funeral card was printed in memory of Francis (Frank) Milks, a brother-in-law of my paternal grandmother Julie (Vanasse) Belair. The card measures about 10.5 cm x 6.5 cm. (approximately 4 ¼” x 2 ½”). It was included in the family memorabilia sent to me in 1987 by my aunt Joan, who was Julie’s daughter.

Frank was a younger son of David and Catherine (Lacharité) Milks. He was born on 9 July 1900 in the rural community of Cantley, Gatineau County, Quebec. Frank worked as a railway labourer when he married Corinne (Cora) Vanasse, my grandmother’s younger sister, on 5 November 1921 in Ottawa. The couple had five children: Doreen, Marvel, Lorraine (Peggy), Donald and Lynda.

Frank died on Easter Sunday, 14 April 1968, in Ottawa. He was interred in the cemetery of St. Elizabeth Roman Catholic church in Cantley.
