SCOTT, ALICE MILLICENT
Alice Millicent (Ryan) Scott passed away peacefully on December 15, 2022 in Fredericton, New Brunswick. Alice was born in Fredericton, moving to Oromocto shortly after marrying her husband Merlyn (Scotty) Scott, where they raised three children in the little house on the Forestry Station: Steven Scott (Darla), Katherine Scott and Michael Scott (Fozia). Alice returned to Fredericton to live after Scotty retired and is survived by her children, her grandchildren Megan (Darren McMackin), William and Jamaal, as well as a number of nieces, nephews and cousins.
She was the youngest of 10 children, and was predeceased by her husband Scotty, her father, Walter Ryan, her mother Ethel (Davenport) Ryan and her brothers and sisters: Joseph Ryan, Benjamin Ryan, Charles (Ty) Ryan, Darrell Ryan, Walter Ryan, Donald Ryan, Wayne (Beezer) Ryan, Clara Marjorie Harris and Shirley Joan Harris.
Alice, who will be sadly missed by her family and friends, was best known by them for her delightful sense of humor, her love for her grandchildren, her love of music, her story telling ability and her appreciation of horses. Alice had a beautiful voice and spent many hours singing along with the songs from various musicals, with her children singing and dancing along with her when they were little. To this day her children can probably sing along with all of the songs in such musicals as My Fair Lady, Camelot, Mary Poppins and the Sound of Music. Alice could tell wonderful stories, which her children can attest to, having listened spellbound to many a bedtime story about the “tiny mouse”! Always promoting education, Alice’s children and their friends, attended many outings to local art galleries, museums and plays. Alice always said that opening a child’s mind when they were young was important and was a good way to ensure they would be open to new experiences when they were older. Alice enjoyed spending time with her family when they visited, especially her grandchildren and fun times were had travelling to Mactaquac Park for swimming and picnic lunches or enjoying an outing to Cavendish Beach in P.E.I.Another of her joys in life was horses and she courageously decided she would learn to ride at the age of 37. Many contented hours were spent with her daughter and her sister Shirley learning to ride and embracing the fun of getting “lost” finding their way to horse shows out in the country. Alice has now finally found her way Home and is at peace.
As per her wishes Alice was cremated, with a Celebration of Life and a burial to take place at a later date; details to be provided at a later time. Rather than sending flowers, Alice requested that anyone who wishes, may make a donation to the Salvation Army or to their charity of choice.
