ALICE SIMONE EMMA FONTAINE
NEE BEAUDRY April 23, 1923 – June 1, 2014
Some people believe we can become an angel when
we die. You, my love, were born an angel.
Our dear Mother, Grandmother & Great Grandmother passed away peacefully in her home, surrounded by loving family and friends.
She was predeceased by her husband, Adelard, son, Edouard (Wa), grandchildren, Travis, Reina and Joel.
She is survived by her children, Gilbert, Roger, George, Normand, Rene, Denise, Joanne, Paul and Mitch, and their spouses, 26 grandchildren and 15 great grandchildren, her sisters, Diane and Aurore and many nieces and nephews.
Mom was born in St. Eustache MB. She was the 11th of 13 children of Arthur and Emma (Prefontaine) Beaudry.
Alice and Addy built their home in St. Vital in 1950 where they raised all of their children. She was creative in needlework and sewing, cooking and preserving the bounties of Dad’s gardening. She provided a nurturing atmosphere for her family to grow. The door was always open in our house. There was always room at our table.
After Dad died she moved to Errington BC to be near the majority of her children. Here, she loved her little house, a mini version of her home on Greendell Ave, with gardens and plenty of space for big family gatherings. She was happiest keeping busy, still cooking, always ready to play cards and visit. There were always a few crochet and knitting projects on the go and she created countless items for her family. Her family was her life.
She was glowing and sending out her tremendous love in her last moments.
A private celebration has been held in Errington BC.
In Winnipeg we will gather for a private celebration at a future date.
