Alice Jane Funk (nee Hurley) born in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan on July 13,1935, passed into the presence of the Lord she loved and served on February 4, 2017. Alice was predeceased by her husband of 57 years Alvin Funk, her parents Robert and Isabella Hurley, and her brothers Charles Hurley and Hall Smyth. She is survived by her children Jack (Wendy), Jill (Bryce) and Lindsay (Joy) and grandchildren Justin, Jordan, Peter, Karen, Rebecca, Allison, Natasha and Carina.
Mom – Bubba – loved and dedicated her life to the Lord and her family. She spent many summers serving at Camp Imadene in various capacities and this, along with her time working at the Christian Book and Music Center in Victoria created some of her happiest memories. She was a true saint and servant of her Lord, not only during her time serving as a Deacon, but also in the countless hours that she gave to maintaining and supporting the church community and functions. She was an exceptional homemaker, wife, mother and grandmother, using her many talents to make a happy home and many joyful memories for her children and grandchildren.
Alice’s family would like to thank everyone involved in her care, especially those at the Saanich Peninsula Hospital ECU.
In lieu of flowers, a donation in Alice’s name may be made to Camp Imadene, the Saanich Peninsula Hospital Foundation, or a charity of your choice.
There will be a graveside service on Thursday, February 16th, 2017 at 10 am. at Royal Oak Burial Park. A celebration of Alice’s life will be held at Saanichton Bible Fellowship, 2159 Mount Newton Cross Road, on Thursday, February 16th at 1 pm.
A wise and loving woman, she will be missed.
