East Vancouver BC, Francis Street is in the Grandview-Woodland neighborhood.

Fanny Dalrymple Redmond (circa 1850-1932) and better known as Sister Frances, was Vancouver’s first public health nurse and directed B.C.’s original training school for nurses.  She also co-founded St. Luke’s, one of Vancouver’s first hospitals, and according to The History of Metropolitan Vancouver, was called the “Florence Nightingale of the City” for her work during the smallpox epidemic of the 1890s.
