Alvena was born June 12, 1933, in Grandview, MB, to William and Molly Matzick. She married Manuel November 19, 1951, in Grandview, then they moved to Saskatchewan where they farmed and raised their family. Following their retirement, Manuel and Alvena moved to Mayerthorpe, AB, to be closer to family.
Alvena loved gardening, crocheting, cooking, playing Bingo, entertaining and especially being with her family. She also enjoyed socializing with friends at Pleasant View Lodge. She will be sadly missed by all who were touched by her life.
Alvena believed in God in Heaven who watched over her each day. One of the greatest gifts Alvena gave her family was helping them learn to have a personal relationship with God. She attended Church with her family each Sunday and ensured her children attended Sunday School in summer. Today, Alvena is, along with Manual, Gerald, Harry, Lawrence, Trina and Kevin, watching over her family.
