On Sunday, June 4, 2023, beloved mother and grandmother Reggie Frank, peacefully passed away in her home at St Ann’s Senior Citizens Village, Saskatoon, at the age of 94. She was a woman of unconditional love. She loved everything and everyone. She will be dearly missed and forever in our hearts.


Reggie was born Maria Barbara Regina Selenski on June 30, 1928, in Mankota, Sask. to Rohus and Katherine(Wickenheiser) Selenski. She married Allan William Frank in Regina, on July 1, 1950.  Reggie and Allan raised 4 children in Tribune, Sask.  Blaine, Barry, Sherry, and Cory.  Reggie spent many years working with Allan at their Red & White general store in Tribune.  She and the family spent much of each summer at their Carlyle(White Bear) Lake cottage.


In 1987 Allan and Reggie retired and left Tribune.  After exploring Mexico, they based themselves in south Texas through the winter months and their cottage in the summer.  Reggie was widowed from Allan on November 8, 1991. She then purchased a cottage in Kenosee Lake, Sask. where she would spend the summer months for the next 25 years. She continued the long drives to Texas and back each winter until she was well into her 80s.  Reggie lived her final years in Saskatoon at Trinity Manor and then St Ann’s Senior Citizens Village.     


A devoted catholic who never missed mass, Reggie’s friends and family, next to her faith, were the most important thing to her. Reggie’s kindness and love for meeting new people were extraordinary. She had an uncanny ability to make lifelong friends wherever she went. Her pleasant personality was contagious to everyone she met. 


Reggie had many talents and interests. She had a passion for the game of bridge. Playing at a competitive level winning her multiple trophies. In her 50s she took up golf and played regularly with Allan and her friends.  She took great pride in cooking for her family and baking the best homemade pies and bread. Summers were spent in her beautiful garden surrounded by lovely flowers. Music and dancing came naturally to Reggie, she knew how to host a party and make sure everyone had a good old time. Reggie had an artistic side to her which will live on forever in her beautiful paintings.
