Alice Mae Jang (nee Webber) passed away quietly on November 5, 2022 at Melville Hospice in South Surrey/White Rock at the age of 86. She is predeceased by her husband Edward Robert (Bob) married 66 years, and survived by her three daughters Laurie (van Leeuwen), Leanne (Parkes) and Shelley (Stroh), and 6 grandchildren Sarah, Kevin, Talia, Taylor, Mason and Kyler, and 7 great-grandchildren.
Alice was born in Calgary in 1936 and spent some of her childhood there, then a short time in Victoria before coming to Vancouver. She married at young age and spent most of her adult life as a mother, raising three daughters. Returning to work when the children were older, she spent over 3 decades in the retail industry, specifically at The Hudsons Bay. She finished her career there as an area manager and earned the distinction of Employee of the Year.
When Alice was not in the role of mother and grandmother, she enjoyed travelling, hiking, reading and any manner of family gatherings. She spent many years as an active member of the Women's Probus Club of White Rock & Surrey. However, she was happiest when she was surrounded by her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She will be missed by all.
