Date of Passing: Jul 09, 2022Send Flowers to the Family Offer Condolences or Memory
It is with sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved Alice Greifenberger at the age of 86 on Saturday, July 9, 2022.
She leaves behind her nephews, Jeffrey Selch of Lac du Bonnet, Manitoba, Michael (Allery) Selch of Winnipeg, Manitoba, and great-niece Kathryn Selch of Winnipeg, Manitoba.
Alice was predeceased by her sister Bonita Selch on May 15, 2011, brother-in-law Gilbert Selch on May 17, 2008, her parents, Herman Greifenberger on August 28, 1985, and Marie Greifenberger on June 18, 1977.
It was no secret that one of Alice's passions was her love for travel. Although her travels took her to many far away lands, her favourites were to visit family and friends across Canada and the U.S.
Alice was an active member of St. John's Evangelical Lutheran Church for 50+ years. During those years she served on many committees and in various positions on the Church Council, right up until 2021 when she "retired" as Finance Secretary. Alice was always a willing volunteer and loved to decorate the church for Thanksgiving and Christmas. She was also a "godmother" to some of the little children in the congregation!'
In addition to church activities, Alice served on the Ecuhome Board, an interdenominational organization that worked to provide affordable housing for individuals.
Alice gave generously of her time and money to a number of Lutheran organizations, including L.A.M.P. and Lutheran World Relief as well as a vast number of secular charities both local and worldwide.
Visitation will be Monday, July 18 from 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at Rosar-Morrison Funeral Home, 467 Sherbourne St., Toronto, followed by funeral services at 11:00 a.m., Tuesday, July 19 at St. John's Evangelical Lutheran Church, 274 Concord Ave., Toronto.
A Celebration of Life and interment will be held in Winnipeg, Manitoba at a later date this fall.
In lieu of flowers, we ask that you make a donation to one of Alice's favourite charities:
