Obituary of Alice Fedje

Alice Fedje


This strong, courageous, feisty and brave woman was born in St. Anthony’s Hospital in The Pas, Manitoba on December 19, 1947 to Edna and Sverre (Ole) Fedje. She surprised everyone because no one expected that Edna was carrying twins, but she was!

Her growing up years were spent in The Pas on Ross Avenue with her twin mate Arne and older brother Wayne. She loved music and spending time with her friends, going for walks in her wheelchair and enjoying the outdoors.

Alice aspired to having her own apartment and being on her own so off she went to Winnipeg to 1010 Sinclair, an independent living home. With the help from friends, family and care givers, Alice was able to accomplish this enormous feat.

When Pineview opened in The Pas, an independent living apartment block, she moved back and lived there setting up her own place with the help of home care. In 2005, Alice moved again to Brandon and got her own place in the Kiwanis block and began self-care management, hiring and scheduling her own workers with help from her friend and Priest Fr. Emil.

Surrounded by her Precious Moments collection and many other things she had collected over the years, photos, angels, Alice began her life in Brandon.

She became a member of the Catholic Church and began a beautiful friendship with Father Emil which lasted until his death in 2020.

Alice moved into Hillcrest Place Personal Care Home in Brandon where she resided until she passed on December 26, 2023.

She is survived by her brothers Arne (Bunni), Wayne (Margot), nieces and nephews; Leanne, Wendy, Kirk and Kari and grand nieces and nephews;  Eric, Kayla, Danielle and Curtis.

Divine Liturgy will be held at St. Mary’s Ukrainian Catholic Church, 927 Assiniboine Ave., Brandon, MB on Thursday, January 4, 2024 at 10:00 a.m. with Rev. Father Yaroslav Strukhlyak as celebrant.

A Memorial service will be held in The Pas this coming summer.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Cerebral Palsy Association of Manitoba, #903 - 213 Notre Dame Ave., Winnipeg, MB, R3B 1N3 or to a charity of your choice.

Goodbye sweet Alice, may Angels meet you with open arms!  

Many thanks to Bea Betts, Joan and Elaine, Alice’s long-time friends from Winnipeg and the staff at Hillcrest Place Personal Care Home for all they do!
