WHITEWAY, Alice Soffia

1928 – Riverton, MB
2014 – Calgary, AB

It is with great sadness that the family of Alice Whiteway announces her passing on January 24, 2014 at the age of 85 years.

Alice and her family moved from Riverton, MB to Calgary in 1973, and shortly thereafter, her husband Ernest passed away suddenly, leaving Alice to raise her children in the large city by herself. However, she never forgot her Manitoba roots, as family and friends were very important to her. As a hardworking and devoted mother, who was proud to have raised 6 children, she was always putting everyone before herself. Anyone that met her will remember Alice for her generosity, kindness, sense of humour, and love of flower gardening. She will be greatly missed as she touched the heart of everyone she met.

She was predeceased by her husband, Ernest; her daughter, Joy; Parents, Oscar and Anna; and brothers, Harold and Arnold.

A Memorial Service will be held at McINNIS & HOLLOWAY’S Crowfoot Chapel (82 Crowfoot Circle N.W.), on Friday, January 31, 2014 at 10:30 a.m. Interment to follow at Queen’s Park Cemetery.

    Dear Linda, Sharon, Charles, Ron and Warren,
    My sincere condolences to you and your families in the passing of your wonderful Mom. Her picture is lovely, and brings back many fond memories from my younger days in Riverton with your family. I can remember her hearty laugh and how she would often make us kids chocolate cake and ponnukokur. She was a great cook and always welcomed us into her home.
    Cherish your wonderful memories.

    Dear Linda, Sharon, Charles, Ronnie, and Warren,
    My sincere condolences to all of you on the loss of a wonderful Mother. Mom was always so wonderful to me and all our family. I will always hold her in my heart for all she did for me when I was your paper boy. She would always have cake and the best cookies with a cup of (coffa soppa) coffee when ever I came over. I wish I could be there to give you all a big hug and shed a few tears with all of you. I miss you all and Mom’s memories will always be cherished.
    Love you cousin Alice, Rest In Peace and Goda Nott Elskun.
