And for anything to do with food -- ask Alice!
She is generous with her baking. Her contributions to the church suppers often included the Ukrainian specialties (cabbage rolls, perogies, borscht) that this Prairie farm girl teacher learned to cook from her mother-in-law when she married her Ukrainian-Canadian engineer. Ukrainian painted Easter eggs were another of her cultural acquisitions.
She is a hard worker and never reluctant to put her hand up. If the task is organizing a team, so much the better. She is always prepared a great manager and a great mentor to others who will be picking up where she is leaving off. When we had to make decisions about the kitchen in our new church building, we asked Alice!
Others also learned to ask Alice. She volunteered at Upper Lynn as a learning assistant and was President of the Argyle Music Parents Association. She volunteered for over 20 years at Lions Gate Hospital. She was scorekeeper for Stan’s softball teams and (of course) managed the food and social aspects. She and Stan love to curl. She somehow still has time to cherish her four children and twelve grandchildren.
No, she is not all about work, as you would know when you watch her on the dance floor. Seekers will remember her games nights. Their move is our loss, but a win for their new community in Courtenay.
