Alice Rosalea Fraser (nee Thomson)

1920 to 2012

It is with great sadness that the family of Alice Fraser announces her passing on Saturday, March 31, 2012, at the age of 91 years. Alice is survived by three sons: Don (Mabel) 100 Mile House, B.C., Stuart (Susan) Grand Forks, B.C. and Alan (Kathy) Brentwood Bay, B.C.; four grandchildren: Rodney (Sheri) of Hinton, AB, Brian (Silke) of Vancouver, B.C., Ross (Erica) Victoria, B.C. and Jane (Murray) of Saskatoon, SK; three great-grandchildren: Blake, Ceric, and Maris. Alice was predeceased by her husband Hugh Munro Fraser in 1973.

Alice was born at Kelowna, B.C., but moved throughout B.C. during her lifetime. She was a vibrant, energetic woman involved in many sports and hobbies. Alice was a competitive swimmer and won many medals up to age 85. She was “Lady of The Lake” in 1939 (Kelowna Regatta). Alice also loved badminton and competed in senior games for many years. She was a talented artist and painted many watercolours which she sold or presented to friends and family.

At Alice’s request, there will be no service. Donations in Alice’s memory may be sent to a charity of your choice. Our deepest gratitude to staff of Annesley Cottage, Hardy View Lodge at Grand Forks, B.C., for their care and support.
