Condolences & Memories (9 entries)
My condolances to Alice's family, with a special hello to Hazel. I remember Alice's wedding reception, on the family farm: a dance platform built for the occasion, with handrails around and shaded by leafy branches of poplar....the wind-up gramaphone for some music. She was a beautiful bride. - Posted by: Olchowecki Victoria (nee Mosquin) (Neighbour (growing up)) on: Oct 06, 2020
My greatest memory of all my great aunties was on Boxing Day afternoons...when all of us would crowd around my Baba’s table to play Rumoli. So many good times, small lesson learned, yummy food and some good old gambling with pennies. We were rambunctious, we ate constantly and most of all we were together. I hope Auntie Alice is having fun with her sisters once again ❤️💚💙 - Posted by: Kelly Szajewski (Bruchanski) (Great niece ) on: Sep 21, 2020
My sincere condolences to Glenn & family, also Tammy & family, Being the youngest sister was not always fun b/c sometimes I got left out especially when Alice & Edith & 2 cousins were involved, (Peter & Harry Krawchuk),.The 4 of them had many misadventures while we lived on the farm. We did have many, many good times together,especially on our trips to Vegas or to Florida. As we aged our favourite game was Canasta. When I couldn't manage stairs we would meet at my place , play Canasta, order supper & play some more. Or we would meet at the casino & have lunch Through good & bad times we always remembered we were family. I will miss you. Rest in peace. - Posted by: Hazel Hoplock (The 7th sister.) on: Sep 21, 2020
My condolences to Glenn and family, I will always have great memories of Aunty Alice - Posted by: Ken Kolton (nephew) on: Sep 20, 2020
Auntie Alice was one of the people I looked up to growing up. She worked hard but she played hard too. There are too many memories to talk about: the trip to Minnesota in her convertible (with the fins) with Mom and Tammy, the breakfast picnics in Birds’ Hill Park, the Brandon Fair booth, all the Boxing Day lunches which merged into dinners, and so many card games. “A card laid is a card played”. It’s so hard to say goodbye, but Auntie Alice has done her job here. We’ll miss you, Auntie. - Posted by: Karen Bruchanski (Niece) on: Sep 20, 2020

Glen, may your Mom rest in peace❣️ - Posted by: Sheri Sherman (Neice) on: Sep 19, 2020
We remember Aunty Alice well, although we were not related. Alice and our dad Albert were avid Bomber fans and had season tickets together for years. Our families visited each other often. Condolences to Alice’s family. - Posted by: Nancy Desmarais (nee Molinski) (Family friend) on: Sep 19, 2020
