We Remember


August 14, 1927 — January 23, 2019

Alice slipped away peacefully in her sleep with family at her side and went to be with her Lord on January 23, 2019, at the age of 91. She was born in Poland on August 14, 1927 to Adolf and Alma Bonn and emigrated to Canada in 1948. She is survived by Alfred, her loving husband of 64 years, daughter Loralee (Larry) Gardner, son Paul (Charlotte), daughter Shelley (Scott) LaHay, and grandchildren Erin, Heidi, Lisa, Matthew, William and Emily. She is predeceased by her parents, her sister Lily, and brother Emil. The family are grateful for the wonderful care she received from Dr. Michael Hopman and the Interior Health Homecare team, who allowed her to spend her final weeks in the comfort of her home.

    Our hearts are sad for you as you grieve the loss of your precious Wife, Mom and Oma. The last time I saw Tante Alice she had such peace about dying. The love in Uncle Alfred’s eyes as he so wonderfully cared for her in sickness and health was a beautiful reminder about what life and love are all about. Keeping you all in our prayers. Praying God would make you so aware of HIs comfort. Love Carol
