French passed away in Gander, Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada, on 17 September 1992, at the age of 110 years, 71 days. French is the first known supercentenarian on record to have been born and died in the Province of Newfoundland and Labrador. To this day, she remains the only known supercentenarian who passed away in the Province.

Emma Galode surpassed her final age on November 2, 1992, less than two months following her passing. Thus succeeding her as the new record holder for the oldest person ever born in the Province of Newfoundland and Labrador.
