Syd­ney Mines

Cast all your anx­i­ety on him be­cause he cares for you…. 1 Peter 5:7

It is with deep sad­ness that we an­nounce the sud­den pass­ing of our Gram Alice Wol­sten­holme on Fe­bru­ary 15, 2017. Born in Syd­ney Mines on May 24, 1933, she was daugh­ter of the late James and Mary (Bowen) Simp­son. She was a mem­ber of West­min­ster Bi­ble Pres­by­te­rian Church.

Gram was a de­voted wife, mother, grand­mother and great grand­mother. She loved her fam­ily dearly and each new baby was ac­cepted into her heart with grace and love.

Gram is sur­vived by her daugh­ter, Cindy (Don); son, Glen (Wanda) and sis­ter, Marie Simp­son. Also left to mourn Gram’s pass­ing are her grand­chil­dren, Jon, Jess, Ryan, Amanda, Matt, Kent, Nate and Aprille and her 11 great-grand­chil­dren. They were her great­est trea­sures. She was loved by her nieces and neph­ews, cousins and friends and will be fondly re­mem­bered by all as ‘Gram’.

Be­sides her par­ents, she was pre­de­ceased by her hus­band, Arch; son, Scott; daugh­ter-inlaw, Mar­i­lyn; brothers, John, James, Louie, Ken (Simp), Buddy and great-grand­son, Noah. A spe­cial thank you to Dr. Paul Hickey, the VON and the North­side Homemak­ers.

Vis­i­ta­tion will be held at J.M. Jobes Funeral Home, 635 Main Street, Syd­ney Mines, on Fri­day Fe­bru­ary 17, 2017, from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. The Funeral Ser­vice will take place on Satur­day at 1 p.m. in St. An­drew’s Pres­by­te­rian Church, with the Rev­erend Dr. Mar­ion Bar­clay MacKay of­fi­ci­at­ing. The burial will be held at a later date.

In lieu of flow­ers, dona­tions in Gram’s mem­ory may be made to a church or char­ity of one’s choice. Words of com­fort may be for­warded to her fam­ily at www.jmjobesfu­ner­al­home.com.

In my fa­ther’s house are many man­sions…. I go to pre­pare a place for you. John 14:2.
