January 1st 2021 at 9:33 a.m., Alice transcended from this earthly chapter of life and into the hands of God, from pain and suffering to everlasting peace, after a 2 month battle with meta-static pancreatic cancer (pancreas, liver, stomach & bones).

“Heaven made its call and gave her wings” (Grandson Walter Howell)

Alice was a daughter, a Wife, a Mother, a Sister, an Aunt, a Grandmother, a Great-Grandmother, and most of all a strong woman to the end.

She began her life in LeQuille Annapolis Royal Nova Scotia until she moved to Ottawa Ontario at 16 years to become a domestic and nanny to 3 children. She then moved to Montreal Quebec where she devoted her time as a Wife and Mother until the end.

She will be very deeply missed and never forgotten by her immediate and extended family:
