It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Albert Edward (Ted) Chambers on September 12, 2021. Born in Winnipeg to Queenie and Albert, Ted was a true north end boy. He met his beloved wife Alace in high school and the two became the best of friends long before they fell in love. Ted and Alace built their lives together as true partners as they raised their family and went on many globe-trotting adventures over the years. In his younger years, Ted was an avid glider and loved to fly.
Ted was a devoted employee of MTS for 35 years, starting out as a technician in the shop, then the central office and up through the ranks to sales where he eventually used his knowledge and talents in the training division. Ted met so many of his lifelong friends at MTS. Ted volunteered his time as a Shriner, and took great pride in spreading joy to others as "Tired Teddy" the clown. His family and friends marveled at Ted's artistry, whether it was his fantastic paintings, intricate model ships, stained glass artwork or other crazy and creative projects. When he retired from MTS, Ted put his creativity to work as he and Alace invested in their new adventure, the Woodlands Gallery. Together, they built their business into one of uncompromising quality, with Alace at the helm and Ted working tirelessly behind the scenes as framer and artistic director. Their dedication and hard work allowed them to retire at the lake and have many years of fun in the Arizona sun during winters. The two cherished their time together long into their retirement, recently celebrating their 57th wedding anniversary.
Ted is survived by his wife and love of his life Alace, their two daughters, Kathleen (Darren) and Chandra, and their beloved grandson Michael. Ted cherished every minute he could get with his family and was incredibly proud of them all.
Ted fought his illness with everything he had, right to the end. The family wishes to thank all of Ted's "Angels" at CancerCare Manitoba (Victoria) who supported him and Alace through years of treatments, Ted was so grateful for your loving care. Special thanks to Claudette. Thanks also to the incredible friends and family who made Ted's last years so very memorable.
As per Ted's wishes, there will be no service. Instead, we invite everyone to raise a glass together and have a toast.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to CancerCare Manitoba or the charity of your choice.

Condolences & Memories (3 entries)

  • Dear Alace, Kathy, Chandy, Darren and Michael. It’s been a long time. Michael was just born. Time got away on us but we’ll always think lovingly of how you saved us in Saudi, showed us where to shop, how to cook and just made Saudi such a fun experience for us. You truly were our guardian angels and your girls helped me stay sane. We send you our condolences, our love and hugs. Ted was a one of a kind and we loved him too❤️ - Posted by: Betty and Brent Linton (Friends) on: Sep 22, 2021

  • I will always be grateful to you. Rest In Peace Ted. Your friend from MTS, Dan Tysz - Posted by: Dan Tysz (Friend from work) on: Sep 21, 2021

  • Dear Alace & Family: It has been a long time since we talked but I still remember all of you. My fondest memory of Ted is when he was with the Shriners. My 2 young sons and myself were at the Shrine Circus and Ted came up to me and started to flirt with me. I was rather shocked that a Shriner would do that, but then he started to laugh and I finally recognized Ted. We had a really good laugh out of that. We saw him on several occasions over the years and I was always very fond of him. Our sincerest condolences to you Alace and all your family. We will miss him. Take care, Joyce & Family - Posted by: Joyce Seabrook (Bemi) (Cousin) on: Sep 18, 2021
