ALICE STEED GIBB

October 31, 1924 – Aug 21, 2018

Alice was born to LeRoy and Adolene Pitcher She loved her Halloween birthday and made the most of it by trying to get the kids to believe she was a witch. However, due to her generous and unconditionally loving spirit, no one was ever convinced.

Alice was blessed with parents and siblings that were always there to provide unconditional assistance in times of need. Brothers Lorin, Melvin, Ted (deceased) and Sister Thelma (deceased). Lorin and Melvin were at her side until the end. We love them so much for that.

Growing up she worked on the farm at Woolford and participated in many track and field events. During the war she served as a secretary and typist for the Canadian Military.

Alice loved people, especially children and those in need. She had 7 children Patricia Rae (deceased) Mike, Dennis (Brenda), Rod (deceased) (Sharon), Tim (Loni), Kevan, Jeff (Karen). She was blessed with 15 grandchildren and 33 great grandchildren who were her greatest joy. Alice served in many capacities in her Church including the Relief Society Singing mothers. She started a playschool and worked with the Kindergarten for several years. She then joined the Green Acres foundation and Managed Golden Acres and Heritage Senior lodges until her retirement.

After her retirement she continued to care for her husband Wayne (deceased) her mother and her Grandkids. For many years she volunteered as a baby cuddler at the Lethbridge hospital. She was incredibly creative and made many costumes, quilts and knitted hundreds of winter hats for seniors and the homeless. She enjoyed gardening and was always canning and bottling fruits, vegetables, jams and jellies. She was an award winning baker of bread, buns, pies and cakes and always made sure everyone was fed.

We want to thank all the staff at the Lethbridge Good Sams cottage 6 for providing such loving care. Special thanks to Leanne.

The Funeral Service will be held at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, MAGRATH STAKE CENTER (Corner of Centre St. and East 1 Ave. South) Magrath, AB on Monday, August 27th, 2018 at 11:00 a.m. Friends may meet the family from 10:00 to 10:45 a.m. prior to the service.
