ALICE MAY HUNT July 16, 1925 to October 25, 2013 On October 25, 2013, Alice May Hunt passed away peacefully at 88 years. She was born in Montreal, Quebec and moved out west to Edmonton, after the war, with her new husband, Robert Nelson Hunt. Alice was a devoted mom to their four children who arrived in quick succession. She loved the Lord and in later years volunteered her time at Mustard Seed for over 10 years and the Baptist Churches to which she belonged. Alice enjoyed conversation with many friends and loved to tend her garden. She was an avid knitter, donating her many projects - scarves, mitts, sweaters and slippers to her family and also to those in need. Alice enjoyed having her family around her and did not forget birthdays.
