Alice Rose Westover
1925 – 2015
Alice Rose Westover passed away peacefully at Joseph Creek Care Village on Thursday, August 6, 2015 at 89 years of age.
Alice was born to the late Peter and Christina Jorgenson on December 15, 1925 in Cudworth, Saskatchewan and was pre-deceased by her husband Bill Westover (1988), her daughter Donna-Lee (1959) and her granddaughter, Ann-Marie Westover (1974).
Alice is survived by 5 children: Bill (Vickie) Westover, Dave (Marce) Westover, Bob (Lois) Westover, Dale (Sandy) Westover and Pat (Daryl) Klitzke; 13 grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren.
Her husband Bill was a saw filer and she followed him as they moved through-out the province from Creston to Cranbrook, Tahsis, Nanaimo, Radium, Williams Lake and back to Cranbrook. Each time they moved, she joked they were taking their furniture on another holiday.
She was a loving Mother, Grandmother and Great Grandmother. Mom had a great sense of humor and loved a good joke. She also enjoyed music and loved to sing. She would light up a room with her smile and fully enjoyed life. She had a gift for writing poetry about meaningful things in her life and could recite them word for word decades later. Mom worked as a chamber maid for many years and received the “Employee of the Year Award” on more than one occasion. In her spare time she enjoyed fishing small lakes with her husband Bill.
The family would like to thank the staff at Joseph Creek for their caring and support. She was loved and will be missed by all who knew her. In accordance with her wishes there will be no service.
Arrangements entrusted to McPherson Funeral Service.
