Alice be­gan her nurs­ing ca­reer in 1952 at Sick Kids Hos­pi­tal and met the love of her life, Don, at a youth group dance at Ti­mothy Ea­ton. A week af­ter meet­ing him she left to work as the sole nurse on Bella Bella is­land off the west coast. Don waited pa­tiently for Alice, and when she re­turned home they mar­ried and raised six kids in Mis­sis­sauga un­til they re­tired in Al­lis­ton and Florida. Alice and Don were devoted par­ents and many of their fond­est me­mories were with their chil­dren, sib­lings and their spouses and at the cot­tage with their ex­tended f am­ily of nieces and neph­ews. Alice al­ways had an aura of peace and con­tent­ment. Her great­est legacy is her strength, ease at which she laughed, com­pas­sion, kind­ness and un­con­di­tional love. She will be dearly missed.
