Obituary of Alice Eleanor Cox-Caunter
It is with great sadness the family of Alice Eleanor Cox-Caunter announces her death which occurred on Friday, May 7, 2021 at the Dr. V. A. Snow Centre with her daughters: Marian and Lorraine by her side. Born in Sault Ste. Marie, ON, on February 28, 1935, she was the daughter of the late Hammond and Florence (Farmer) Cox.
Alice was a geriatric nurse who was known for her passion and caring of her patients. She worked and later on volunteered at the Dr. V. A. Snow Centre. While living at Ossekeag place, she was known as the “in house nurse” and “the go to person”, often volunteering for numerous causes.
She was passionate for the Catholic Church and later in life became a pastoral care provider, frequently assisting Father Barry with the church services. Alice loved to garden and taking long walks; she could often be seen walking around the town of Hampton with her beloved dogs or grand dogs by her side.
Alice will be greatly missed by her five daughters: Marie Smethurst (Paul) of Cheshire, England, Teri Gleason of Mountain, ON, Marian Lyne (Stephen) of Hampton, NB, Lorraine Hood of Kingston, NB and Joanne Herbut of Montreal, QC; five grandchildren: Amy Butler (Mike), Jennifer Gleason (Anton Baglaenko), Nicholas Lyne (Katrina), Alexander Hood and Lauren Smethurst; one great grandson Cameron Butler.
