Alice Primrose Cooney

Alice Primrose Cooney


It is with great sadness

and heavy hearts that

we must say goodbye to

a wonderful mother,

grandmother and great

grandmother. Alice left this world to join her husband,

Ron of 58 years just one week after his passing. Alice was born on September 13, 1932

in Kelowna, and passed away peacefully on February 3, 2013 at the age of 80 years. She worked for many years at

the Fruit Packing Plant while

raising her family and babysitting her grandchildren. 

Alice loved to sew and spent many hours making clothes

for her grandchildren and their dolls. Family was the

centre of Alice’s world and she showed it every day with

her loving and caring way in all the things that she did. 

She is survived by her five children: Rod, Deb,

Mike(Carolyn), Al(Marlys) and Sandy(Gerry); her many grandchildren; Steven(Adele), Tymara(Johnny),

Kyla(Marc), Tyler-Lee(Alison), Lindsey (Mike),

Ashley(Brandon), Carly(Brendan) and Reggie; as well

as her four great grandchildren; Shawn, Austin, Taylor

and Karrington.  Alice was sadly predeceased by

two grandchildren; Shawn Williams and Geordie

Sutherland. She will be cremated and a Celebration

of Life for both Ron and Alice Cooney will be held

Saturday, March 9, 2013 at 2:00 pm at the Knights of

Columbus Hall, 130 McCurdy Road, Kelowna, BC. 

In lieu of flowers, Memorial Donations may be made

to the Heart and Stroke Foundation, 4 – 1551 Sutherland, Ave., Kelowna, BC, V1Y 9M9
