We are all at peace knowing Mom has won her battle with dementia and has found her memories once again!
At the age of nine, Alma moved from her birthplace of Marceline, Saskatchewan with her parents Joe and Colette Sanche and her siblings to settle in Kimberley. Here she met and married Keith where they raised their five children.
Alma enjoyed knitting, crocheting and gardening. All of the family were supplied with her hand towels and dishcloths for many years. In her later years she enjoyed travelling with Bill and they did many trips together. Alma was preceded in death by her husband of 42 years, Keith; sisters Irene and Muriel and in-laws, Linda, Mary, Wally and Nils.
Alma is survived by her children Deb (Bill), Denise (Wink), Kevin (Dorothy), Shane (Marilyn) and Jim (Joanne), 13 grandchildren and 13 great grandchildren. Also her special friend, Bill Goudie (Sean and Lezlie and families); sisters Lillian Nordby and Annette Shumanski and brothers Gabe (Donna), Ray (Lynda) and Dale (Gayle). The family would like to thank Dr. DuPreez and the wonderful staff of The Pines for their care and love!
A Luncheon Celebration will be held on Friday, June 26, 2015 from 11:30 am to 2:00 pm at 442 – 301st Street, Marysville, BC.
