Wiebe and Jeske Funeral Home Staff send our condolences to family and friends.

From: Rev. Karl R. Janzen
Relation: Alice and I ministered together, sang together in Vernon, B.C. We were both graduates of Prairie Bible Institute and missionaries, though on different continents.

Dear Loved Ones: Please accept my sincerest, heartfelt condolences for your great loss, though it has been heaven’s gain. Alice was a wonderful person who my wife and I got to know better in our retirement years in Vernon, B.C. Who knows – Alice, with her nightingale voice, is beautifully praising the Lord in song and my wife may be accompanying her on a piano in heaven, as she did for Alice here on earth!! Blessings on you dear ones – may the wonderful memories of Alice encourage and bring joy your hearts.

From: Laura-Ruby Stade
Relation: Aunt Helen and her husband Uncle Art were our dorm parents plus there children were MK's that we went to school with.

From Ethel, Esther, David, Clifford and Laura-Ruby Stade our deepest condolences on the passing of your Mom (Aunt Helen). She was truly a beautiful lady who’s love for the our Lord. His love was like a ray of sunshine that came out of every pore body! When she sang she made everyone stop and turn to see who was singing putting the angles to shame. Thank you for sharing your Mom and Dad with us while they served in Niger and Nigeria. They both were a bless to this great world we live in.

From: Sylvia Herchen

Dear family of Alice; I had the pleasure of singing alongside Alice for two years in Counterpoint Choir. She was a very nice lady and later I found out that she sang for seniors as well. she was very active right until the end and I know she was at peace before the end.
all the best to her children and relatives.

Relation: nephew by her sister June

Alice certainly had a long, interesting life. From a humble beginning in Coeur dAlene, her work in Africa, helping to raise a large family, and missionary sprit were special. She passed away peacefully and awaits a resurrection in God’s new world. (John 5:28, 29)
