obits2_0008_Alice DueckAlice’s family immigrated to Canada in 1926. They stayed with relatives in Ontario, then moved to Saskatchewan and shared a “bunch house” in Manitoba before returning to Ontario. At 10, during family devotions, Alice accepted Jesus as Saviour. Her early commitment through baptism marked a lifelong relationship. At 16, during a snowball fight at an evening Bible school in Virgil, Ont., Alice met Jake. They served Niagara Christian Fellowship Chapel for 35 years. In addition to raising 4 children, they cared for foster children. Alice was a nurturer and listening ear to her siblings’ and friends’ children long after her own nest was empty. Alice’s desire for her family to walk with the Lord was on her heart and lips to her last day.
