1925 ~ 2014
It is with heavy hearts that the family of Alice Kulikowski announce the peaceful passing of their mother, grandmother and great grandmother on Saturday, June 28, 2014 at the Lac du Bonnet Personal Care Home with her family by her side.
Left to cherish her memory are her children David, Diane (David) and Jim (Joanne), 10 grandchildren and 10 great grandchildren, her extended family and dear friends. Alice was predeceased by her parents and August, the father of her children.
Alice was born on May 17, 1925, the only child of John and Annie Mathews. She grew up in Lettonia, in the area now known as Grausdin Point, named after her grandparents who homesteaded there. She attended Newcombe School, then completed her Grade 10 by correspondence.
Alice did work in the city for a while, at Hunter’s Potato Chips and at a chocolate factory. Back home, she taught at Poplar Bay School before becoming a full time farm wife. She was a busy person, feeding any number of people with her rye bread and pig-in-blankets at a moment’s notice, tending her gardens-especially the flowers, picking blueberries and endlessly knitting and crocheting treasures. We all looked forward to our mittens and slippers at Christmas.
Alice was a quiet, caring person, who loved visits, especially her family. Every visit, every phone call was special to her. She had many good friends throughout her life. including at the Adult Day Program and her Lunch Bunch. She was a warm, friendly woman who never said a bad word about anyone. The gentle love she shared was certainly returned to her. Alice was a true lady.
Her memory will be cherished by all who knew her, dear friends and family. She loved living at Bonny Vista Lodge, and the Personal Care Home.
The family would like to give a huge thank you to Alice’s caregivers, who also gave us such wonderful care. Thank-you!
As per Alice’s wishes, cremation has taken place. The funeral service will be held on Friday, July 4 at 1:00 p.m. at Lutheran Church of the Cross, Lac du Bonnet, MB, with interment to follow in the Lac du Bonnet Cemetery.
