ALICE SYLVIA COUTTS (nee Svenson)
It is with great sadness the family of Alice Sylvia Coutts (nee Svenson) announces her passing on February 21, 2019 at the age of 88 years at Birch Lodge Personal Care Home in Hamiota.
Left to treasure all of the wonderful memories are her daughters Sherri (Tom) Mollard of Hamiota MB and Alison Coutts (Brian Posluns) of Toronto ON and grandchildren, Troy and Shelby Mollard and Madison Posluns, and her sister Verna Johnston. She was predeceased by her husband Joe in July 2017 and her parents Miles and Grace Svenson.
Alice was raised in Onanole MB. She had a career with the Royal Bank before marrying dad in 1961, and they then settled in Stonewall MB to raise their family. While in Stonewall, she was employed by North American Lumber for many years before retiring to enjoy the arrival of her grandchildren. Her commitment to community included being an active member of the Kinette Club and executive member of the Stonewall Figure Skating club. Camping/fishing trips, curling and golfing, and leisure walks with her many four legged friends were what brought great pleasure to mom.
A private family interment will take place at a later date. If friends so desire, memorial donations may be made to the Birch Lodge Personal Care Home Activities Fund, Hamiota,MB, R0M 0T0.
Messages of condolence may be shared or candles lit using the Tribute Wall or Guestbook links.
