Alice Marie Leavitt Alice Marie Leavitt
Peacefully at the Charlotte County Hospital, St. Stephen NB on October 1, 2020 with her loving family by her side, Alice Marie Leavitt, beloved wife, mother, sister, grandmother and friend. Born in Pocologan NB on July 2, 1936, she was a daughter of the late Victor and Edna "Marie" (Oliver) Leavitt.

Alice is survived by her husband of 58 years, Keith Leavitt, son, Terry of Geary NB, daughters, Beth (Jeff) Torrey of Pennfield NB and Janice Harmon (Ken Hanselpacker) of St. George NB, seven grandchildren, including special grandchildren, Kaitlyn (Dylan) Kluna of Kingwood TX, Nicholas Harmon (Brianna) of Hermon ME and Jay Torrey (Makenzie) of Pocologan NB, seven great-grandchildren and one great-great-grandson, siblings, Redmond Leavitt, Theresa Hooper, Blanche Borthwick, Charles Leavitt, Allan Leavitt, Lorna Olson and Lorne Leavitt along with several nieces, nephews and cousins.

In addition to her parents, Alice was predeceased by two sons, Jerry and Dean and by sisters, Olive Quigley and Mary Borthwick and by one brother Clayton Leavitt.

Prior to retirement Alice worked at the cotton mill in Fredericton, for Connor Brothers Ltd. and in home support. During the Christmas season, she made wreathes from tips picked by her husband Keith at their camp in Rollingdam.

Alice enjoyed traveling and road trips with her love, Keith. They have been on many an adventure and have seen lots of countryside together. Even as her mobility declined, Alice could be found at her grandchildren's sporting events. She loved cheering them on and enjoyed watching Kaitlyn and Nicholas as cheerleaders and Jay has he participated in hockey and football.

Alice was a selfless soul. A true matriarch, her love, guidance and friendship will truly be missed by her family and friends. Alice was an active volunteer for many years at Cornerstone Tabernacle, and she greatly enjoyed spending time with her best friend, Buddy (Muriel) MacDonald.

In her later years you could find Alice helping her neighbours as well as making friends with all the nurses and staff at Charlotte County Hospital. Upon her return home, Alice loved her Kindred girls and was so greatly loved in return. She enjoyed time on Facebook viewing pictures of her family and friends near and far. She also enjoyed phone calls and visits. Alice was a great knitter and kept her family members in dishcloths and slippers.

The family would like to thank Charlotte County Cancer for their support to both Alice and Keith over these last few months. Also to Kindred Home Care for their care and dedication to Alice. Thank you does not feel like enough to, Carol, Jessica, Meg and all the girls, for allowing us to grant our mother her wish for being in her own home for many months. Thank you to the palliative wing of the Charlotte County Hospital for keeping Alice comfortable during her last days.
