It is with tears of sadness and compassion that we bid Alice; sister/in-law, aunt, cousin, and friend farewell. Alice left us to meet Morris, her late-husband, and other loved ones waiting to take her home. Her passing was peaceful and occurred on Saturday, Feb 19, 2022 in the early evening in the Kamsack Nursing Home, her residence for just over 2 years.
Alice struggled the past couple of years with her declining health and, like many others, was dealing with the isolation due to Covid. True to her nature however, she did establish friendships in her new home in Kamsack. She enjoyed playing bingo, sing-a-longs and chatting with her fellow residents. Everyone I’ve had the opportunity to meet at the home has always told me what a sweet lady Aunt Alice was.
Alice was born at home in Stenen, Saskatchewan on July 19,1939. She was the 8th of 9 children and leaves, as she referred to him, her “baby brother”, Lorne, the last surviving sibling. Alice married Morris Lyzun in October, 1964. They shared a quiet, simple and happy life together until Morris's passing in 2015. They made their home in Reserve, Sturgis and Hudson Bay before finally settling in Preeceville and gently moved into their golden years . Many people would mention to me how they remember seeing them walking hand in hand to join friends for coffee daily. They said that it brought a smile to their faces and how precious it was. Morris and Alice were a well-matched couple and devoted to one another. That is the beautiful vision I always have when I think of them. I hope it will be one of yours too when you remember them.
Alice leaves behind to lovingly remember her kind heart, gentle nature and teasing qualities, her smile, laugh and at times a sharp tongue and glances; her brother Lorne (Christine) of Aberta; sisters-in-law, Vicki (Ed) Derkatch of The Pas, Manitoba; Josie (late Sid) Lyzun of Yorkton, Saskatchewan; Josie (Bob) Parton of Saskatoon and so many nieces, nephews, cousins, great and great-great nieces & nephews, and friends.
Memorials in memory of Alice Lyzun may be made to any seniors organization to help seniors, as gifts of remembrance.
Arrangements for Alice Lyzun have been entrusted to Preeceville Funeral Home.
