Alice passed away peacefully on October 7, 2015 with her daughter at her side. She was born in Enderby on August 27, 1925 and lived her whole life in that community until moving to Armstrong following the death of her husband. She was predeceased by her first born daughter Wanda, her son Bob and her beloved Jim.
Alice was the consummate homemaker and mother as her family was the most precious part of her life. In addition to helping with the gardening and farm work on the family homestead on the Shuswap River, Alice was always involved in her community including Women’s Institute, Springbend Community Club, United Church Women, “Twice But Nice” and the Seniors Centre — often serving in executive positions. She and Jim were also very active in Square Dancing Clubs throughout the Okanagan / Shuswap as well as the RV Club.
A Celebration of Life will be held at Zion United Church in Armstrong on Thursday, October 15, 2015. In lieu of flowers donations in memory of Alice can be made to the North Okanagan Hospice Society 3506 – 27th Avenue, Vernon, BC V1T 1S4.
