ALMA BERNICE ANDERSON (nee MCDONALD) September 8, 1923 - October 31, 2018 Born in St. Boniface, Winnipeg to Johanna (Strindlund) and Angus. Peacefully, passed into the night after a long journey. Predeceased by the love of her life Clary, and her son Michael. Bernice leaves to mourn her children, Caisey (Denise), Hugh (Lorill) and Georgia (Roger Taillieu). Also grandchildren, Bryan (Zabrina), Tina, Kristina (Mike), Mellinda (Andy), Scarlet (Cory), Alex, Seann, and Heidi (Dan), as well as seven great-grandhildren. Bernice was also predeceased by her sisters, Betty May, Lorna O'Brien and Joanne Strachan, and leaves many nieces and nephews. Growing up in St. Vital, Bernice had an idyllic childhood spending time on the Red River and Grand Beach every summer. After many visits to Vancouver, she and Clary jumped at the chance to move there during the war years. Excitement ensued in her various roles as mother, homemaker, seamstress, designer, nutritionist, real estate agent, teacher, program writer, sailor, family historian etc. A brilliant woman who could figure out just about anything. Bernice enjoyed helping others and over the years had a list of renters (paying and otherwise). She passionately pursued art and gardening after the loss of Clary. She kept her family close and they her. She lent a kind ear to all who needed it and there were many. Rest In Peace Mom. You are the best. Thank you to all the staff at Inglewood Manor for all your love and support over the last eight years. Donations kindly accepted to the Salvation Army or the charity of your choice. A private ceremony has been held.
