Frances "Fan" Selby


Frances "Fan" Selby

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Frances "Fan" Charlotte Selby, 94, of Port Elgin, and formerly of Cape Tormentine, NB, at the Westford Nursing Home on Tuesday, December 8, 2020.  Born in Beach Point, PEI, Frances was a daughter of the late Montford and Mary (MacIntosh) Herring.

Fan loved having company.  Her home was always open for anyone who wished to drop in and there would always be someone visiting.  She enjoyed knitting and playing cards and was deeply devoted to spending time with her friends and family.

Fan will be dearly missed by her two sons, Frank (Pat),  Summerside, PE and Scott (Carol), Cape Tormentine; seven grandchildren, Todd (Angela) Selby, Frank Selby, Jana Selby, Peggy (Joe) Dunville, Kent (Kelly) Dunville, Corey (Hayley) Selby and Julie (John) Farrell; thirteen great grandchildren; sisters-in-law, Donna Herring, Ada Herring and Arlene Herring; a brother-in-law, Gordon Peardon, as well as several nieces and nephews and extended family.

Besides her parents, Fan was predeceased by her husband, Frank; a daughter Barbara Ann; a grandson, Paul; five brothers, Louis, Hilton, Stranberg, Allan, and Laurie and six sisters, Louise Cahoon, Marceline Blackett, Una Martin, Catherine Skerry, Wells MacGlashing and Jean Peardon.

Arrangements are under the care and guidance of Jones Funeral Home.  A time of visitation will be held from their Port Elgin location, 3 West Main Street, (506-364-1300) from 2-4 pm on Saturday, December 12, 2020.  Please bring your masks and respect social distancing guidelines.  A graveside service for Fan will be announced at a later date in the spring.

The family wishes to extend their sincere appreciation to the staff of the Countryside Residence, Port Elgin and the Westford Nursing home for their wonderful compassion and care of Fan.

Donations in memory of Fan may be made to the IWK Foundation or a charity of the donor's choice.

Sharing of memories and condolences may be sent to the family by visiting Fan's online memorial at or through the Jones Funeral Home Facebook Page.
