- I had the pleasure of meeting Alice when she was in the Misericordia Health Centre. She and my mother sat across from each other in the dining room. I always enjoyed visiting with Alice. She was always so pleasant, kind and fun to chat with and always seemed to look on the bright side of everything. I am glad to have met her and send my deepest condolences to the family.

- So many great memories are flooding in of my life with Alice, a
strong influence in my development. I recall that she saved me
from falling into the open cellar door when I was ten months old. She taught me so many things ... to tell time at the age of four, to
tie my first pair of oxfords when I was six. I admired her ability to draw likenesses of movie stars (to which I followed suit) and her fun filled entertaining spirit. How many times did she lead us in
the conga line as she did with the service men at the dance hall in Winnipeg Beach during the second world war. Alice would try any
task like assembling ammunition for the army and disassembling
it when no longer needed. There is so much to tell about her that
could fill a book. I shall miss her beyond words.
Rest in peace Ally. Love from Jody.. XOXOXO

- I grew up two streets over from the Hygaards' on Knowles Avenue, I am Val's best friend and yes... her partner in crime and hyjinx. Mrs. H. was like a second Mom, and I spent alot of time with my buddy,her Mom and Dad whether on Knowles Avenue, in Selkirk, or at Grand Marais. Auntie Alice was an awesome lady, who always found the time and patience, usually over a cup of tea (which she assured me fixes every crisis) for me. I am grateful to her for teaching me how to sew, and to do so with love! My memories are varied and scattered, but all of them cherished, I will remember Mrs. H as a wonderful Mom, Grandmother and Wife... and to me a friend. R.I.P., with love, Donna
