Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family. Alice was a very special lady who especially loved children. She was very active in our church for many many years. She loved to cook and frequently had goodies that she brought for the children to eat. She always had a smile. We will miss her very much.

My most sincere sympathies to Alice's family. There are so many fond memories of Alice when she lived next to my aunt MARION Elliott on South Bow Rd. What a wonderful woman.

Dear Grammy,



you always took great care of me when I was home sick from school as a little girl. I will always remember those days of picking blueberries & strawberries, trips to McDonald's after school, baking muffins & cookies, canning the veggies and playing badminton over your clothesline. I even remember the snowsuit you made for my Barbie so I could take her out in the snow. But most of all, I am going to miss your comforting hugs. And I am going to miss you telling the story of your twin granddaughters (me & Jamie) five times in an hour. I guess we made that big of an impression in your life, just as you did in ours. I love and miss you dearly.

Alice was a very graceful lady.  Whenever Wayne and I would stop by 99%of the time she would be baking.  We would sit and chat about the ole days and the funny thing that were done.  She was a Very Special Lady !!
