Alice Grace Isherwood Nee (rich)

December 13, 1930 - April 14, 2011


On Thursday April 14, Alice Isherwood passed away at Mountain Lakes at the age of 80.
Alice was predeceased by her husband of 45 years, Gordon and loving daughter Debbie. As well as brother Cyril, sister Shirley, father Reginald, mother Grace and step mom Lois. Alice leaves behind her children Barry (Wendy) Isherwood, daughter Heather (Grant) McKen, sister Pam Dodd, son-in-law John Martin and her 9 grandchildren who were a source of great enjoyment…Philip, Steve, Adam Martin, Ryan, Meghan, Alex Isherwood, Brandon, Jeff and Ashley McKen. And many dear relatives and friends.

Alice was born December 13, 1930 to Reginald and Grace Rich in Ottawa. Alice attended Colborne High school and then went on to use her secretarial skills at various jobs. She married her husband Gordon Isherwood on November 17, 1951 in Ottawa. They resided for a time in Montreal then in Ottawa where their 3 children Debbie, Barry and Heather were born. In 1965 they made the trek across Canada to Haney, BC where they lived before coming to Nelson in 1967 which became their final home. In Nelson Alice raised 3 children and had a secretarial position with Notre Dame University.
Mom was affectionately known as Nanny by the grandkids and she cherished the time she had with all of them. The kids loved going to Nanny’s house as she always had a stash of candies to share.
She enjoyed bowling with her friends and could throw a strike or two when she wanted. Alice loved to spend time outside tending to her vegetable garden and flowers. She always had beautiful pots adorning her yard.
Her dog “Penny” was her pride and joy before moving up to Mountain Lakes in ’09 where she lived until her passing.
Alice will always be remembered for her kind heart and vibrant smile that she greeted everyone with as she passed by.

The family wishes to thank Dr. Janz, the care aides and nurses for all of the compassionate care mom received while at Mountain Lakes as she dealt with Alzheimer’s…..especially in the last few days.
There will be a memorial service April 20, 2011 at 11:00AM at Thompson Funeral Chapel. As an expression of sympathy, family and friends may make donations to the Alzheimer’s Society.
