Obituary of Alice Elizabeth McFadyen
Alice Elizabeth McFadyen
(July 21, 1921 - January 6, 2023)
With reverence for a life well lived we announce the passing of our beloved mother and grandmother at the age of 101. Alice passed away at Seasons Retirement Home in Camrose, Alberta.
She was predeceased by her husband Walter McFadyen; her parents Sidney Cootes and Elizabeth Cootes; sisters Edith Bondaruk, and Peggy Walker; brother Stanley Walker; daughter-in-law Shirley McFadyen; as well as many beloved cousins, nieces and nephews.
Alice will be dearly missed by her sons Lawrence (Betty) McFadyen, and Les McFadyen, daughter Sharon Sanders; grandchildren Kent, Mark (Bree), Scott, Alana, Louise, Jeanette (Arnie); great-grandchildren Shaun, Justin, Nick; and great-great- grandchild Rosabella.
Alice lived almost as long as Alberta has been a province. She knew hard times and good times, living tenaciously in her house till she was 99. She was a dependable employee and worked for many Camrose businesses in her lifetime. Her greatest joy was spending times with her family and friends. She loved country music, playing her guitar, and cheering on the Blue Jays. She was a strong member of the United Church and Eastern Star. Her family wishes her to be remembered as a true daughter of the Canadian prairies.
A private family service will be held.
If family and friends so desire, memorial contributions in Alice's memory may be made to Camrose United Church, or to the Heart & Stroke Foundation.
