Obituary of Ann-Louise McAlister

McAlister Ann-Louise McAlister (nee Lewis). Ann-Louise died peacefully at home on February 8 in Goderich, Ontario. Born February, 1931 in North Battleford, Saskatchewan, she remained a prairie girl at heart. Predeceased 18 years ago by the love of her life Rev. Alfred McAlister. She was very proud of her children (Peter/Gwen, Ruth/Fred, Martha/Craig, John/Daun, Mary/Geoff, Rob/Tina) and 13 grandchildren (Bryan, James, Annemarie, Alex, Liam, Connor, India, Linnea, Kinnon, Rudy, James, Joshua, Jacob). Ann-Louise had a happy childhood, doted on by her older siblings (Audrey, Vivian, Doug). She developed lifelong friendships during her nursing training at the Wellesley in Toronto. Ann-Louise and Alfred made many communities home in the United Church: Bruce Mines, Dundas, Woodstock, Thornhill, Carlisle, and Namur, Quebec. Ann-Louise settled in Bayfield for the last two decades of her life, where Alfred’s family had deep roots. Always compassionate and engaged, Ann-Louise was a member of United Church Presbytery, a delegate to the Liberal Party national convention, volunteered at the youth detention centre, sang in the choir, and was a devoted Nana to her grandchildren. May we all learn from her example. A service will be held at St Andrew’s United Church, 6 The Square, Bayfield on March 2, 11 am. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to St Andrews United Church, PO Box 202, Bayfield Ontario N0M 1G0.
