Alice loved sports. In her younger years she loved to play softball and was a star player on many teams. She loved her Toronto Blue Jays and enjoyed watching every game possible. In recent weeks she would rise from her sick bed to watch the curling championships and pre-season Jays games. Alice loved the holidays and decorated her home beautifully for each one. Christmas being her favourite. She was a much-loved member of the Cobden & District Seniors Association.

Cremation has taken place and her ashes will be laid to rest in the family plot in Beachburg. A celebration of life is planned for Friday April 5, 2024 at the Cobden Legion from 1 to 5 pm.

Special thanks to the staff of ConnectWell, the Renfrew County Paramedics and the Bayshore Home and Community Care Support team, in particular her nurse, Kerry Nolan, who provided her with excellent care during her difficult journey with cancer.
