Alice Fairbairn, aged 97, peacefully passed away with her family by her side at Park Manor Personal Care Home. She was predeceased by her husband, Frank in 2010, and by her daughter, Judy in 2019.  Left to cherish her memory and celebrate her long life are her daughter, Janet, son Robert (Roger), granddaughter Angela Cave (Sam), and great-grandchildren Griff and Romy. Mum came from a very large family and is survived by her remaining siblings Steve and Tillie, as well as numerous extended family members. 

Born in rural Manitoba (Zoria), a full education was sacrificed to support the family farm.  She later moved to Winnipeg to find a life for herself in a new and exciting urban center. Initially, she worked in a restaurant and then at a garment factory. It was not long, and she met Dad at a dance, and they were married in 1957 and settled in Transcona. Mum took immense pride in living independently in her own home until a few months before her passing.

As a devoted stay-at-home provider, Mum also worked part-time at Woolco Dept Store in the fabrics department. Her creativity and strong work ethic led her to tackle many DIY projects alongside her close companions, Lil and Chris. Her exuberant creativity fueled many crafts and ongoing projects. With a delightful sense of humor and unwavering resolve, Mum made her mark. 

A funeral service will be held on Tuesday, June 11, 2024 at 1:00 pm at Cropo Funeral Chapel, 1800 Day Street.

The family would like to express their gratitude to those health care providers both at home and Park Manor that gave our mother the best care.

Flowers gratefully declined in lieu of; donations may be made to Park Manor Personal Care Fundraiser - Backyard Revitalization project.
