Alice Schuld

1936 – 2016

“[She] who kisses the joy as it flies, Lives in Eternity’s sunrise”

– Wm Blake

Alice Schuld was born Aaltje Vonkeman in 1936, the middle of nine children, in the town of Doetinchem, the Netherlands and, in the wake of World War II, immigrated to Canada in 1952 with her parents, Albertus and Maartje Vonkeman and her siblings. From that beginning, her life was one of contrasts: she maintained a personal ethic grounded in Calvinist tradition and Dutch pragmatism, but was also a fiercely proud Canadian; she was a fashionable city girl who, for love, chose life on a farm; and she had little formal education but dedicated herself to the lifelong pursuit of knowledge. In 1958, she married Peter Schuld and most of her life was lived on the Schuld family farm near Iron Springs, AB, where they raised four children and welcomed their grandchildren. Alice was a homemaker in the very best sense of the word—with apparently easy grace she imparted beauty and comfort on the lives of those around her. Under her care, a farmyard was transformed into a garden oasis and a house into a haven for lovers of books, fine art, and design. She cultivated friendship with loyalty and humour. For Alice, all gifts were personal and gift- giving was a clear and quiet way to communicate that the recipient was appreciated and understood. The most generous gift she gave was time, which she prized above any one thing and she stubbornly refused to waste it: those with whom she shared it knew we were cherished.

She is mourned and missed by Peter Schuld, her husband of 58 years, her children—Ed Schuld and daughter-in-law Chris Schuld, grandchildren Lynsey and Ryley Schuld; Sharon Schuld and Muharrem Gajtani; Dawna Schuld; Marsha Cannon and son-in-law Dale Cannon; and her extended family and countless friends.

A private family service will be held in memory of Alice’s life.
