Hope Adrienne Fronton

October 24, 1923 - December 20, 2015


With love in our hearts, we say goodbye to Hope Fronton, who passed peacefully at her Willingdon Creek Village residence.  She is survived by her two sons Jeffery MacFronton and Steve Fronton, daughter-in-law Darcie MacFronton and four grandchildrenTerra Demiris, Shanti MacFronton, Jedediah Fronton and Zachary Fronton. Hope was able to know her great-grandchildren Peter Demiris, Eli Demiris and Emery MacFronton-Thind.

Hope was born in Liberty, New York, the only child of Isador and Julia Goodman.  She deeply mourned the loss of her mother, who diedvat a young age.  As a young adult, Hope moved to New York City, where she worked as a riveter assembling parts of airplanes in World War II.  She loved dancing and swing music.

Hope married Charles Fronton on November 11, 1946 and had two sons.  Shortly after Steve was born the family moved to New Jersey, where Hope worked as a dental assistant once her children became school aged.  As their children grew into young adults, Hope and Charlie moved to the mountains of Oregon, where they could enjoy being surrounded by nature in a house built by Steve and Charlie.

After the death of her husband, Hope moved to Florida to care for a relative.  Then in the summer of 1992, she moved to Powell River to be closer to her son Jeff and his family.  Hope's progressive thinking and wonderful sense of humor always made an impression at family gatherings.  She cared deeply for widlife and supported various wildlife-protection organizations.

Hope will be remembered for her sharp mind and witty tongue.  She will be greatly missed by her family, friends and community.  She will always be our “Only Hope”.
