-The Globe and Mail described Francess as an “undisputed star of the editing world.” She had a very clear idea of what an editor should be – a supporter for the author. One U of T professor is reported to have said “Francess can have anything she wants. She got our books published.”Her magnum opus was the Dictionary of Canadian Biography (DCB).” Officially she served as General Editor of the DCB/DBC from 1969 to 1988 working with her counterparts at Université Laval overseeing the completion of ten volumes of the Dictionary, comprising more than 5000 Biographies –a truly remarkable achievement. She adhered to and furthered the principles on which the Dictionary was based – a bilingual partnership with the Université Laval (with the result that the DCB/DBC became and remains the most important bilingual project in the Canadian humanities). The organization of biographies by period of death date rather than alphabetically,​ and the insistence that biographies be based on primary sources is a practice that distinguishes the DCB/DBC from all other national biographies. “\\+The Globe and Mail described Francess as an “undisputed star of the editing world.” She had a very clear idea of what an editor should be – a supporter for the author.

 Francess`s mother was always her supporter. In conjunction with a group of editors she said ``that little girl knows more than all you boys put together`` and following the presentation of the Molson Award she said “Francess always did her homework.” Both of these things were probably true.\\ Francess`s mother was always her supporter.
