Alice worked at Sobeys in Sydney for 30 years starting at
the Charlotte St. store and was on hand as the new store was
opened in the Prince Street shopping mall. Alice was a member and
faithful attender of Bethel Presbyterian Church Sydney and a past
member of Morning Star Lodge Loyal True Blue Association. A loyal
supporter of the Toronto Maple Leafs, Blue Jays and an avid follower
of Question Period and House of Commons discussions, she kept
up with world happenings. Her sense of humour and quick wit was
evident every day and her greatest laugh would be if the joke was on
her. Alice and John Angus spent many happy summers at the
MacLeod homestead on Rooster Hill entertaining family and
friends with great food, lots of music and parties and made wonderful
memories for the family to enjoy.
Visitation will take place at Sydney Memorial Chapel on

will be on Thursday, August 8 at Bethel Presbyterian Church at 11 a.m.
