1913 ~ 2011
Alice Margariet Ovard, beloved wife of the late Mr. Clinton Ovard, passed away peacefully at the Bow Island Health Centre on Friday, March 18, 2011, at 97 years of age. Alice leaves to cherish her memory: son-in-law, George Schile; grandson, Darrin (Tracey) Schile and his three children, Tiffany (Ryan) and Tiffany's daughter, Sienna, Meagan (Chris) and Danielle; granddaughter, Tracy (Jan) Johnson and their children, Gina and Jayda, as well as numerous other relatives. She was predeceased by her parents; beloved daughter, Yvonne Schile, and her sister, Mary Adams. Alice was born in Fernie, BC on October 28, 1913. At a young age, her family moved to Whitla, AB to farm. On July 25, 1936, she married Clinton Ovard in Lethbridge, AB and together they began their life farming three miles South of the #3 hwy. Later in life, they moved to where the farm is currently located along the #3, farming there until their retirement. She was an active part of the C.W.L. for many years, and enjoyed assisting with the Church dinners. She was a great baker, and cooking for large numbers came easy to her after so many years of cooking for the men during harvest. Alice enjoyed crocheting, sewing, dancing and bowling, as well as her opportunities to travel. She especially enjoyed her trips to Europe, the Caribbean and the Philippines. Alice will be remembered for her spry personality and her selfless nature, always putting the needs of others before her own, especially when it came to her daughter and grandchildren.
