Whitney Pier

It is with heavy hearts that we the family announce the passing of our beloved mother, grandmother, sister and loyal friend, Alice Eileen Ash. This angel got her wings on February 14, 2019 at the Cape Breton Regional Hospital surrounded by her family and best friend.

Alice was born in Mulgrave on May 2, 1943 to the late Norman and Ada Ash. She is survived by her daughter, Linda (Louie); sons, Wally (Mona), Dennis (Amanda), Blair, Darren (Jennifer), Corey (Joann); brother, Silas Ash; sisters, Rita, May and Ardella as well as 14 grandchildren and 2 great grandchildren plus many loving nieces and nephews. Alice will also be deeply missed by her best friend, Sharon Kirton, who was with her until the very end, and the father of her children, William Talbot Sr. as well as her “fur baby”, Precious.

Besides her parents, Alice was predeceased by her son, Curtis; brother, Raymond; sisters, Helen, Annie and Evelyn.

Alice was a very proud and humble woman who was loved by all that had the pleasure of knowing her, she will be fondly remembered for her sarcasm and quick wit. She could make you laugh without even trying to, everyone who had the pleasure of being in her company would agree. She loved life and loved to laugh and have a great time. Her family was always her first priority. We the family had her on a pedestal often referring to her as our “queen”. It is almost impossible to put into words how truly amazing she was. Mommy was the matriarch and the foundation of our family. She will always be in our hearts and we will love and cherish her forever. She loved to cook and would always offer a hot meal to anyone in need and will also be remembered as the lady who makes the hot sauce.

Visitation for the late Alice Ash will be held Wednesday, February 20, 2019 from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. at the Pier Community Funeral Home, 1092 Victoria Road (entrance on Church Street) and the funeral service to celebrate her life will be February 21, 2019 at 11 a.m. in the All Faith Chapel.

In lieu of flowers, donations in her memory can be made to the Whitney Pier Youth Club or charity of your choice.

We would also like to extend a sincere thank you to the nursing staff from the ICU for your excellent care and compassion given to our mother.

Funeral arrangements are entrusted to the care and direction of Pier Community Funeral Home.

“This is for you Mommy – Our Beloved Queen. The Queen who gave us Life. How grateful we are for you giving us the best life a Mother could ever give. We may have lacked so many things this world can buy-but we are full of the things that money can’t buy – your LOVE, that was enough to make us the richest.”
