In 1903 Alice and John moved to Canada where they lived on a farm about 10 miles north of Raymond, Alberta. Alice was a very good cook, baking many fruit pies and preserving a lot of food as well as making her own butter. She made the children's clothes and planted a garden yearly. Alice and John were both kind and compassionate people. They would often stop at the home of a widow who took in laundry to support herself to share their food supplies. Alice had a trademark well remembered by her granddaughter Janice Shaw - she always wore a clean white apron. On special occasions she wore her valued silver pin with ALICE on it, given to her by John. Her hair was pulled back in a bun, her appearance always neat and tidy. Alice lived with her elder daughter Ethel after John passed away. She died on 15 August 1957 in Raymond, Alberta, at age 85.
