GRAHAM, Alice Carrie
August 16, 1925 – January 31, 2017
Alice passed away peaceably in her sleep. She is
survived by her sister Rose Sinclair of Calgary and
her brother Wallace Kober of Tucson, Arizona. She was
predeceased by her husband Bob Graham on Dec. 26,
1992 and her brother Art Kober of Edmonton. Alice and her
husband Bob moved from Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan
to Cochrane in 1953, when they purchased the Hart Pharmacy and Ice Cream
business. Then in 1956 they began operating as GRAHAM'S PHARMACY at
320 – 1st Street West until 1990. In the early years of GRAHAM'S PHARMACY,
Alice's Grey Nun nursing training helped thousands of people in Cochrane
and the surrounding area, because Calgary was the only place to get medical
help. Therefore, Alice became the town's "one woman" first aid stop. She
loved helping people with her nursing skills and was a tireless worker in the
pharmacy, but she was always ready to sit and chat with the customers over
coffee. Many customers became life long friends.
Interment will be at the St. Andrew's Cemetery, 427 Centre Ave. North (Bow
Valley Trail to 4th Ave N, then Sunterra Rd right, then Range Rd 42 left),
Cochrane at 11:30 a.m., Saturday February 4, 2017, with a memorial service
to follow at the Frank Wills Memorial Hall, 405 - 1st Street East, Cochrane
at 1:30 p.m.
Any inquiries to Blaine: 403-669-4255.
