Alice Glanville

April 30, 1920 – April 28, 2015

Alice Glanville passed away peacefully at Piccadilly Care Centre in Salmon Arm, where she had recently relocated to be near her family. Alice was a well known and respected educator, author and historian, who left behind a wealth of knowledge of the Boundary Country. Her childhood was spent in Greenwood with her seven siblings, after which she attended university to become a teacher. Along with her husband Jim, who predeceased her in 2008, Alice raised her family on the North Fork dairy farm, then resumed a teaching career at Grand Forks Secondary School. In retirement she made her greatest impact on the community with 19 years of service as a school trustee, 20 years as a marriage commissioner and volunteer work with numerous community organizations. Alice leaves behind her three sons and their respective families: Harvey (Carla) and Brook (Andrea) and Lindsay (Ryan); Ross (Elaine) and Shane; Clark (Bev) and Sean (Annie) and Ryan (Chantel). There are eight great grandchildren who were an additional source of joy and pride. Alice is also survived by her two youngest sisters, Jean Higashi and Sheila Rosen, and sister-in-law, Iris Clark. A memorial service to celebrate Alice’s life will be held on Saturday, May 30 at 1:00 p.m. at the Gospel Chapel in Grand Forks. Donations in Alice’s memory can be made to the Phoenix Foundation.
