It is with great sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of Alice Elizabeth Shannon at the age of eighty-two, on October 24, 2022.

Alice was born on January 2, 1940 at her childhood home in Hamilton Ontario, the second child to Arthur and Lena Bruton.  Alice grew up in a quiet neighborhood with her sister, her parents and was close to her many aunts, uncles and cousins.

After leaving high school, Alice traveled the world for several years, traveling to Europe, the Caribbean and the North of Africa. Alice settled in Australia and New Zealand for several years before returning to Canada.

Alice started her family in 1965 with her first husband Mel Gregory and then gave birth to her son Mark. Alice later met and married Sam, her husband for fifty-four years and had two more children, Michael and Peter. Alice and Sam moved from Hamilton, Ontario to Calgary, Alberta and then settled in Kamloops, British Columbia where they bought their family home which they were both proud of. Along with raising a family Alice never stopped her love of traveling and continued to do so with Sam over the years, visiting Europe, South America, vacationing in South Carolina and returning to Australia as well as New Zealand.

Alice was predeceased by her mother, father, sister, and her husband of fifty-four years, Sam, who passed away earlier this year at the age of eighty-five. Alice is survived by her three sons Mark, Michael and Peter.

Alice will be remembered as being a great mother, and the most dependable person you’ll ever meet. Alice was a true kind soul and loved her animal friends until the last days.  A private service will be held by family for both Sam and Alice at their wishes.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA).
