Aline Estelle Church

October 5, 2015

Passed away peacefully on October 5 2015. She was born in Timmins Ontario to the late Ludger and Melanie Boisvert and was one of 7 children.

She and Alan met while working at the Timmins Daily Press. Alan had just finished schooling and moved from Ottawa to start work at the paper as an accountant. He invited her to the office Christmas dance and that was the start of a loving relationship.

She and Alan moved to Nanaimo to take over an existing

accounting practice and later moved to Port Alberni to start up another office and raise a family of 3 children.

She was always strong and physically fit from ‘farming ‘ her garden; was very social and made friends easily; always saw things from a positive side; had a very generous nature and possessed a good sense of humour.

She had many interests including gardening, listening to classical music on CBC,

furniture refinishing, travel and shopping. On finding and purchasing a ‘treasure’, she was often heard to say that ‘ you couldn’t afford not to buy it ‘.

Aline was predeceased by her husband, Alan; grandson, Grant; brothers, Alphonse and Arthur and sisters Irene, Eva and Lucie. She is survived by her children Randy

(Peony), Stephen (Helen), Lois, grandson Paul (Misha), great grandchildren Finah and Leaf and sister Madeleine.

Special thanks to the caring staff in Eagleview and Fairview at the Stanford Place Care Campus for assisting her in with her everyday needs.

The family will mark her passing with a private ceremony. No flowers by request.
