Alice Arlene (Cameron) MacCulloch
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our dear mom, grandmother and great grandmother. Alice was born in Goshen on October 4, 1934 to the late Ernest and Mabel Cameron. She was the last surviving member of her immediate family.
In the earlier years mom was very active in her community through King’s United Church, U.C.W., Red Cross and Home and School. She loved being at home in Goshen, a beautiful property that was passed down from her grandparents. She loved baking and was an avid gardener. She was a very talented published poet, who composed many poems for different occasions. In her later years, she learned to drive and began working at Sobeys where she acquired many new friends.
She is survived by her son, Frank (Wendy), New Glasgow; daughters: Susan (Peter Koltek), Goshen and Ardith (Colin Wood), Stellarton; grandchildren: Christopher (Suzi) MacCulloch; Melanie Lysyk; Kenzie Koltek and Connor Wood; sister-in-law, Isabell Cameron. She adored her great grandchildren: Jack, Emily, Thomas, Charlotte and Gabriella.
She was predeceased by her husband Frank, brothers: Charles, Wallace and Robert Cameron and sister Bertha Sinclair.
In keeping with Covid 19 restrictions there will be a private visitation. Private funeral service will be streamed at 11:00 am on Wednesday. Please click on this link to view:

I may never climb a high and distant
Or walk with kings or see the Taj Mahal
But I have seen the leaves turn to crimson,
From my own kitchen window in the fall.
I may neverfly beyond far reaching planets,
Or see a distant galaxy in space,
But once I beheld an early morning sunrise,
And mirrored there I saw the image of God's face.
I may never wear a splendid purple
Or journey to some far off sunny clime,
But once a little boy gave me some violets
And I felt the whole universe was mine.
I will never own a priceless diamond necklace;
Visit castles in Venice or in Spain
But today a tiny girl wore daisy crowns,
As hand in hand we walked a country lane.
I may never venture forth from small
Own a yacht or sail the seven seas,
Yet tomorrow I might glimpse a summer rainbow,
And watch a white gull circling proud and free.
My heart will never climb life's golden pathway,
or ever find a valley cool and sweet,
But the loveliness which nature places round me,
And my loved ones have made this life complete.
