Alice will be remembered as a kind person. She was the definition of class. She was a gentle person with a great sense of humor. She was an excellent cook, skills she honed while employed as a cook at Lonicera Hall, Metropolitian Restaurant, Carmen's Diner and the Wandlyn Inn. She was famous for her baking and the neighborhood children gathered at her house to eat her delicious cookies fresh out of the oven. She loved music and dancing. She spent a lot of Saturday nights dancing at the St. Stephen Legion with her husband and dear friends. She loved Christmas and everything that went with it, the shopping, the music, the decorations, food and especially all the family gathered in her home. That is when she was truly her happiest.
The family would like to thank the staff at Lincourt Manor in St. Stephen for their excellent and loving care of their beloved mother. Your kindness and professionalism will not be forgotten.
A celebration of life will take place at a later date.
Arrangements have been entrusted to Humphreys Funeral Home, 20 Marks Street, St. Stephen, NB E3L 2B2 (506 – 466 – 3110)
