September 23, 1932 – May 3, 2021
at the age of 88 years:
Alice Emeline Fischer passed away peacefully on the evening of May 3, 2021, at the age of 88 in Kelowna, BC. She was born on September 23, 1932 in Stonewall Manitoba. Her early years growing up on the farm cultivated a deeply rooted work ethic. One of her fondest memories was working in an orphanage where she could relate and empathize with children, partly due to losing her own mother at the tender age of 5. She instilled core values in her children that included working hard and treating all people equally. She believed in serving her community and while living in Penticton volunteered for many years with the CWL.
Alice is predeceased by her husband Vincent, sons Leslie Fischer, Gerry Fischer, and son-in-law Richard Haughian. Alice is survived by her five children Patrick Fischer (Susan), Yvonne Caldwell (Jim), Vincent Fischer Jr. (Tammy), Annamaria Collopy (Rob), and Kathy Haughian. Alice is also survived by 12 grandchildren and 7 great-grandchildren.
