Alfie is survived by her husband Clare, son Eric, daughters Karen (Calvin) Cortner, Connie (Bradley) Muir, four grandchildren, Megan, Brandon, Malcolm and Madeline, her sister Esther Schwartz, numerous nieces and nephews and their families. She was predeceased by her parents Nils Wickman and Lava Pedersdotter, sisters Christine Goodkey, Ruth Staples, Sylvia Rosie and infant grandsons Joshua, Isaac, Caleb and Maxwell. In lieu of flowers, those wishing to remember Alfie, may take comfort in knowing, as the curtains of life began to fall, she was sitting comfortably in her favourite chair by the window overlooking the flowers she planted in her abundant garden of life. In reality, she passed away peacefully at home. However, her loving heart kept strong and refused to accept the finality until late the next evening at Kelowna General Hospital. No service at her request. Condolences may be sent to the family by visiting
