Alma Grace Carson, nee Long, 98 years of age, passed away with her children at her side in her home on Tuesday, March 24, 2020.
Alma grew up in Surrey, England and immigrated to Canada in 1948 to marry Albert Carson, whom she had met several years previously when he was stationed in England at the end of World War II. They farmed together at Thornhill until they retired to Roland in 1978.
In England Alma had a career as a Tailor’s Apprentice. When the war began she started working at Secretts Market Garden in the Women’s Land Army. While farming at Thornhill she was active in 4-H, teaching many girls how to sew. She always had a beautiful garden and was always involved in her local Horticultural Society. She was also involved in all aspects of her local United Church.
Alma was predeceased by her husband Albert(1980), her sister Beryl Long(2017). She is survived by her three children; Dennis (Christine), Valerie (David), Sherril (Jeff), 11 grandchildren, and 9 great-grandchildren.
We would like to thank Home Care, Cancer Care, Dr. Kruk and her many friends in the community for their care over the years and during her recent illness.
A private family interment will be held in the Fairview Cemetery, Roland. Memorial donations may be made to Boundary Trails Palliative Care or to Boundary Trails Cancer Care, Box 2000 Station Main, Winkler, MB R6W 1H8.
