She will be lovingly remembered by her son Jack (Lauren), daughter-in-law Janet; grandchildren Carlton (Leanne), Melissa (Chris), Leslie (Jeff) and John (Kelsey); and great-grandchildren Abby, Hudson, Holden, Sarah, Emily, Parker, Oliver, Charlie and Owen. Alice cherished every moment she spent with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She had numerous nieces and nephews that she loved dearly. Alice was predeceased by her husband Ted and their son Doug. The family takes comfort in knowing they're together once again. She was also predeceased by her siblings Helen, Rob and Billy. Alice and Ted were married in June of 1947 in Carroll, Manitoba. They lived and loved married life in Dauphin. She was very active in the community participating in the Eastern Star, the United Church Women, Toastmistresses, Dauphin Horticulture Society, Rockettes Curling and Lionelles. Alice was pleased but humbled to receive the Caring Canadian award presented to her by Governor General Adrienne Clarkson. She made friends everywhere she went and always had nice things to say about everyone she met. The family will be forever grateful for the wonderful care Alice was fortunate to have after moving to Winnipeg; first at Lindenwood Manor and most recently at West Park Manor. We cannot say enough for the care provided to Alice. A celebration of Alice's life will be held at a later date. In recognition of Alice's commitment to her community, contributions can be made to the Alice and Ted Dent City Beautification Fund c/o Dauphin and District Community Foundation, 100 Main St. South, Dauphin, Manitoba, R7N 1K3.

Condolences & Memories (2 entries)

  • Jack and family, our sincere condolences on the loss of your Mom, Grandma and Great Grandma Alice. Alice was not only a lovely gem of a person, she was widely known and loved in our family. She and your dad lived with mom's aunt Gertie Derick when they first got married so they were life long friends as well as my grandparents Cassie and Bob Edwards and of course my parents Denny and Margaret Edwards. We will always remember Alice's hospitality and interest in our lives but most of all her funny little anecdotes. Our best to you all... - Posted by: Margaret, Lorraine and Louise Edwards (Margaret and Denzil (Denny) knew Alice and Ted from the time they first moved to Dauphin .) on: May 02, 2016
