Alice Thomson McNeill

May 18, 1920 - November 21, 2019

Obituary

Alice Thomson McNeill (Lyon) was born in Glasgow, Scotland on May 18, 1920. She went home on November 21, 2019 at the age off 99.

Alice lived a long life that spanned two continents and almost a century. Alice married her husband, Alex, in 1944 while he was home from the war for officer training before he returned to active service. They had one daughter, Anne. Alice was a homemaker and an avid Golfer till her sixties. Alex and Alice followed their daughter Anne and her husband Peter to Canada in 1980. Alex passed away in 1982 and the family returned to England. Anne and Peter returned to Canada in 1988 but Alice stayed in England for another 4 years, 3 of which were providing a home base for her grandson Chris while he attended university in England. Alice followed the family to Canada in 1992. Her daughter Anne passed away from Cancer in 1995 and Alice remained in Powell River till her passing.

Alice’s faith was the central part of her life and was reflected in all she did. Her strong faith and witness impacted hundreds of people over the years. She led bible studies and prayer groups, contributed her listening ear to many people and she was a source of support and prayer for them.  She was a stubborn Scot, but she cared deeply about people and loved the Lord.

Alice was predeceased by her husband Alexander McNeill, her daughter Anne Rogerson and her sister Ella in 1972.  Alice is survived by her brother Andrew Lyon and his wife Isabel, and her son-in-law Peter Rogerson and his wife Judy.  Additionally, Alice is also survived by her 2 Grandsons and their families, Christopher and Shannon Rogerson and Stuart and Stephanie Rogerson.

The family wishes to thank Dr Dohm and the staff at Willingdon Creek for their loving care. We also wish to thank the many people who faithfully visited Alice over the last few years.
