Obituary of Alpha Wilson
It is with sadness that the family announces the passing of our mother, Alpha Wilson (Hale), widow of David Wilson of St. Stephen. Alpha was born in Westville, Nova Scotia, the seventh of ten children.
During the Second World War, Alpha worked as a welder in the Pictou Shipyard. Following the war, she moved to Milltown where she was employed at the Cotton Mill and later at both Meek's and Eagan's grocery stores. At age 50, she returned to school taking the RNA course at the Lady Dunn Trade School in St. Andrews. Following graduation, she was employed at the Charlotte County Hospital where she was very active in the CUPE union until her retirement. She was a dedicated member of the St. Peter's Anglican Church, ACW and Altar Guild. She enjoyed playing bridge with her lady friends every Monday. In 2018, she moved into Lonicera Hall where she enjoyed both the staff and residents. We thank them for all they did to make her feel at home.
She is survived by her sister, Isabelle Sangster, her three children, Karen Wilson-Brown (Chris), Eleanor Linton (Daryl), Lloyd Wilson (Joyce). grandchildren Tara, Erin, Melissa, Michelle and Kyle, great grandchildren Jordan, Ryleigh, Aubrie, Kayden and Lauren.
