Alice Townsend

August 15, 1927 - October 13, 2010


On Wednesday October 13, 2010, Mrs. Alice Elizabeth Townsend (nee Krause) of Oliver passed away peacefully at the McKinney Place Extended Care Unit at the age of 83 years.
She was predeceased by her baby daughter Gloria Jean, husband Joe Townsend in 1989 and close companion Bill Wihnan in 2008; brothers Sam, Art, Ted and Manny Krause and sisters Pauline Bagg, Clara Tomlin and Hilda Shannon.
Alice will be fondly remembered by her brothers Ernie and Walter Krause; sisters Linda Benko, Jean Boisclair and Connie (John) Davies as well as fifty nieces and nephews and a special poodle “Missie”.
Alice ran a Day Care out of her home in Oliver for several years. She also lived for many years in north central BC in Prince George, Smithers, Houston and Reid Lake. Alice was a master jigsaw puzzle artist and she loved animals, especially dogs of which she had many.
Donations are gratefully accepted for the BCSPCA, 2200 Dartmouth Drive, Penticton, BC, V2A 7W7.
The family would like to extend a Special Thank You to Charlaine and Rocky Lundy for their devotion to Alice over these past difficult years and to the caring staff at McKinney Place.
