Obituary of Alice Evelyn Lee
Alice Evelyn Lee
(August 1, 1937 - January 18, 2022)
Alice Evelyn Lee (nee Swanlund) of Edmonton, Alberta, formerly of Sherwood Park, Alberta, passed away peacefully of natural causes on Tuesday, January 18, 2022, at the age of 84 years.
She is survived by her three sons, Michael Jr. (Randi), Timothy (Corinna), and Jonathan (Heather); 6 grandchildren, Matthew, Harrison, Christopher, Jack, Nathan, Olivia; and 4 great-grandchildren; Damien, Victoria, Andrea and Nora. She was predeceased by her parents Hilding Swanlund and Judith Swanlund (nee Person).
Alice’s childhood was active, as she moved with her parents to several locations throughout central Alberta, and even to Montreal during the second world war, as her dad, Hilding, helped the Canadian war effort in building aircraft. She spent a lot of her summer holidays helping out her Uncles (Alver, Albin, Algot and Ingvar Person) on the Person farm, kitty corner to Wilhelmina Lutheran Church. After graduating high school, she spent time doing various clerical jobs. She met and married her husband (Michael Lee) and raised three boys in Sherwood Park, Alberta. During that time, she enjoyed singing with the Richard Eaton Singers, working on the County of Strathcona Library Board and participating in several local musical theatre productions. In retirement, Alice enjoyed several trips to Mexico and indulged her passion for literature by taking creative writing courses at Grant MacEwan Community College.
The family extends their deep appreciation for the great care that the home care workers provided for Alice at both the Good Samaritan Wedman House and Village and South Terrace Long Term Care Home in Edmonton.
Alice will forever be remembered for her quick wit, sense of humor, love of literature and music.
Due to Alberta Health restrictions, a private family service will be held sometime in the future.
If family and friends so desire, memorial contributions in Alice's memory may be made to the Good Samaritan Society.
