  1. Margaret Put and sons :

    Our deepest condolences to you all in the loss of your beloved mom and grandmother. Mrs. Reid was always a favourite of mine and my boys. She stopped in regularly at my mom’s to play the piano and sing French songs with the boys, and was always happy to share a cup of tea and goodies with us. We missed her greatly after she moved to Calgary and are so sad to know we won’t see her again. But, we will remember her for her joi de vivre, and her devilish sense of humour. M Put and boys

    Dear Susan and your family. We remember Alice as a fun loving, caring person. It is many years ago that we met your mom and dad, through square dancing, and we shared travel, the Dining Group and many other activities. We always looked forward to a joke by Alice. We have missed her since she left Regins.

    I am so sorry to read about Alice. She was a great friend to my wife when she was living in Pioneer Village. Over a long period of time she had supper with a group of us and would take part in the discussions of world problems. We enjoyed her wit and funny stories. We have greatly missed her since her move to Calgary. God bless. Ross Kingdon
