Alice Giese

July 11, 1936 ~ July 21, 2022 (age 86)


It is with a heavy heart that we announce the peaceful passing of Alice Giese on July 21, 2022, at the Hamiota Health Centre in Hamiota, MB.

Alice was born on July 11, 1936 in Minitonas, MB. She grew up on the family farm just outside of Minitonas, with two brothers & a sister. Although she worked hard on the farm, she enjoyed spending time with friends in town.

 She met & married Arnold in Minitonas in 1958 and then spent time in Kelowna, BC before returning to Minitonas in 1961 where they settled on a farm not far from where she grew up. Alice worked hard on the farm and raising the family before moving into Swan River in 1974.
She spent 15 years working at the Swan Valley Personal Care Home before retiring in 1995 and moving to Regina, SK taking time to care for their grandchildren. They enjoyed some time with family in Mississauga, before settling into Rivers, MB, and small-town life once again in 2017.

She loved being in the garden and you would often find her at the farm if she was not busy preparing a meal for a family gathering or tea with a snack during a visit.

Alice is predeceased by her husband Arnold, parents Samuel and Martha, 3 siblings, and son-in- law.


 Alice is survived by: her children Darlene (and Gerald Gourlay) of Rivers, MB, Dorothy (Knights) of Mississauga, ON, Ron (and Shelley Giese) of Red Deer, AB, John (and Nancy Giese) of Regina, SK, and Charlene (Giese) of Winnipeg, MB, along with numerous nieces and
nephews, 5 grandchildren and 11 great grandchildren all of which are honorary pallbearers at her final resting place in Minitonas, MB on August 3, 2022.
In lieu of flowers Alice would appreciate donations be made in her name to the charity of your choice or to Hamiota Palliative Care Unit.
