Alice HANES

Mrs. Alice (Ginger) Edna Grace Hanes, late of Abbotsford, BC, passed away peacefully in her sleep with her family at her side on October 10, 2014 at the age of 97. She was the youngest of five sisters, Rita Fowler, Irene Payne, Viola DeNike, and Flossie Gregory, who have all predeceased her. Ginger will be fondly remembered by her children, Graeme (Bev), Nancy, David (Diana); her 5 grandchildren; 15 great grandchildren; and 3 great great great grandchildren. Loving wife of the late Donald F. Hanes who passed away in 1994, she was also predeceased by their son, Donald; son-in-law, Jim Moxley; and grandchildren, Marlene Moxley, Brett Hanes, and Bob Hanes. She married Donald Hanes on October 18, 1936 while living in Huntsville, ON, later moving to Toronto, ON. While Don was serving in the Air Force they moved to Edmonton, AB, and then moved to BC, where they resided in: Edgewood, Robson, Patterson, and Rossland (where they opened the Sunshine Coffee Shop, which is still operating). They moved on to Genelle, Trail, and retired in Christina Lake in 1972. Retirement at Christina Lake was good – fishing, cards, friends and long walks with their two special dogs. Ginger will be remembered for her love of animals; cats, dogs, birds and fish. Throughout her life she had them all. They enjoyed their trips to Yuma, AZ in the winters to get out of the snow. One of her favourite pastimes was playing crib and crazy eights. Her last six years were at the Cottage Pavilion in Abbotsford, BC. She had many cherished friends among the care givers and we thank them for treating her so special. She loved all the activities, especially bingo and singing hymns.
