Alice Julia Cormier

March 18, 1925September 16, 2020

Cormier, Alice Julia, (Murphy Doyle) It is with great sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of Alice Julia Cormier at the age of 95, in her family home in Margaree Forks on September 16, 2020 with her sister Carmel by her side. Alice was a very strong, independent, kind and caring person who enjoyed life. She was known for her red hair, colorful vocabulary, her baked goods and going to bingo. Being raised on a farm as an only child, she did it all from hauling water, to twitching logs, to looking after the farm. There was nothing that she couldn't turn her hand to. There was always a way to get things done. In 1954 she married the love of her life, Mose Arthur Cormier and raised a family of five. For many years she worked at the Margaree Lodge in the laundry department. Alice lived a life of deep faith and love of God. She prayed the rosery daily and always had a novena on the go. She was a member of St. Patrick's parish, North East Margaree and a member of St. Patrick's CWL. She is survived by her children, Michael (Christina) Cormier, Maureen (James) Chiasson, Barbara (Leonard) Wyrwas, Patricia Cormier, Karen Cormier-MacIsaac; grandchildren, Lauren Cormier (Paul), Jillian Cormier, Brock Cormier (Jenny), Felicia Chiasson, Travis (Morgan) Chiasson, Addison Chiasson (Rachael), Nathan (Cassie) Wyrwas, Devin Wyrwas (Dana), Randy Wyrwas (Kortney), Patrick Lemal (Aimee), Shannon Lemal, Ronan MacIsaac, great-grandchildren, Hudson Chiasson, Leif Smith, Larkin Wyrwas, sister in-law, Helen Murphy; siblings, Dennis (Mary Catherine) Murphy, Lillian Landsburg, Carmel (Davy) Timmons, Kevin (Joan) Murphy, Hughie (Mary) Murphy, Ranold Murphy, Ursula (Patrick) Butler, Grace (Frank) McNab, Eugene (Julie) Murphy; 1st cousins, Jessie (Maurice) Kowal, Margaret Kulchyckz Besides her parents, Martin and Alice (Doyle) Murphy and Michael and Julia (Miller) Doyle, Alice was predeceased by her husband of 52 years, Mose Arthur Cormier, her brother, Patrick Murphy; Catherine and James Murphy in infancy, all from the 1st family, Martin Murphy, Bridget McKeough, Bernadette and Catherine Murphy from the 2nd family, in-laws, Allen Landsburg, Bill McKeough.

I was so sorry to hear of Alice's passing. Although I didn't personally know her very well, I knew her from the Doyle and Miller family histories. I did visit with her a number of times while doing family-tree research and really enjoyed her strong personality and considerable family knowledge while chatting with her in her kitchen. I can still remember visiting this house with my father about 65 years ago when her mom - Julia Miller (my father's Aunt) was living there with her husband Michael Doyle. I live in Alberta now and with the Covid 19 couldn't get home to pay my respects.
My sincere condolences to the Cormier family on your loss.

Sorry I cannot be there to lessen the sorrow shared by the entire family. However you are in my thoughts. She was indeed a strong lady. I always enjoyed her stories of working the farm, meeting Mose and going to the dances. She loved her children and was there for them. I will always remember the big family gatherings and the smell of her fresh baked rolls. She always spoke her mind which often made for an even special evening. She was also a woman of faith and usually reminded you during your visit. I was fortunate enough to be accepted into the family and have those wonderful memories of her. Alice, may you have the rest you long deserve.
Christina
