It is with heavy hearts and great sadness the family of Alice Marie Young of Grey River announce her sudden passing on Sunday, September 19th, 2021 at the age of 59 years.
Marie was the most loving and devoted wife, the perfect mother, and a true friend to all who knew her – a beautiful woman who loved her family and friends more than anything and continuously put their needs ahead of her own. During the weekdays, Marie would be at the store she owned with her husband, Alvin. She greeted every customer with a smile and always shared a yarn over the counter. Every weekend, Alvin and Marie would take off to their much-loved cabin, where she pulled on her jammies and welcomed all who stopped by. Marie loved to laugh and during her last days with us, she laughed, danced, and celebrated life’s most beautiful moments and memories with her family.
