I am the youngest son of Pearl’s uncle Ruben Agensky, the brother of Pearl’s mother Cherna. I was very young, had infrequent contact and was rarely included or even advised of extended family events; basically I am irrelevant to the extended Francoeur family. I am writing because I do have fond memories of my cousins Carl, Max, Sarah and Pearl, as well as of Cherna, Fishel and Hennie. My heartfelt condolences to the Francoeur and extended families. Her love and her legacy live on in her children and grandchildren and in the memories of her considerable achievements. May they bring pride, satisfaction and comfort in this sad time.

It was so wonderful hearing the beautiful tributes for Pearl at the service this morning and spending time with the family at the shiva. It was an honour for us to share in the celebration of this wonderful and unique life, just as it was an honour for us to be among the many people who were touched and inspired by Pearl during her lifetime. Please accept our sincerest condolences at this time of profound loss. May you be comforted by the many cherished memories you hold. Richard, Celina, Natalia and Julia.

Grandma Pearl was pretty special. The grandchildren always had a special and huge place in her heart. I will always appreciate the attention she gave them with often very generous gifts. By the way our boys were extremely upset and saddened as her condition brought her closer to the end was a major statement to how they loved her as well. We were all richer to have had her in our lives

My condolences to the family. I remember Professor Francoeur from the Education faculty at McGill. She was a kind woman. Interesting to me is that her father may have helped form the ILGWU, of which my father was a member. May you have many good memories of her.

Mindy Goldman - 19 days ago

Auntie Pearl was truly a unique individual. She fought hard to get an education and was a life-long learner and career woman, while raising five children. She cared deeply about making the world a better place for everyone. Pearl was close to my father, Carl, and I remember fondly spending time with Pearl and Marc at their summer cottage and including her in many family celebrations. My condolences to the Francoeur family at this sad time.

Pearl, my aunt, was an inspiration to everyone who knew her. She was a career woman and incredible achiever, long before most woman were, along with bringing up a family of 5 children. She wrote a wonderful memoir, which gave me great insight into my father (her brother) and the family. She was passionate, dedicated and inspiring to her family members and her many students.

Pearl was my beloved aunt. She accepted me into her home from an early age. I loved joining her children at their summer cottage. Later on, she was my mentor as I embarked on a teaching career. She eventually was my science professor at McGill and I instilled in my students a love of science. Her legacy lives on in her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
