Jackson, Alvina

Alvina Jackson (nee Adams) passed away peacefully at the Coronation Care Center on July 10, 2015 at the age of 87 years. She was born in Forestburg on August 17, 1927 and lived there until she married Earl Jackson who farmed south of Galahad.
Farming was a busy life and Alvina was not shy of hard work. She kept a very large garden, helped with the farm work, as well as caring for a family of five.
Alvina took pride in having a clean home and keeping a beautiful flower garden and yard. She participated in many community activities and clubs.
Alvina was very good at working with her hands and enjoyed hobbies such as quilting, stitching, crocheting and ceramics. Her schedule was always busy with her husband and sons participating in so many sports, 4H, Boy Scouts, gymkhana and music, always being their number one fan.
Alvina is lovingly remembered by her husband of 70 years, Earl; her two sons Warren (Lorraine), Dennis (Debi); nine grandchildren, 12 great grandchildren; numerous nieces and nephews and her three sisters-in-law Mary Adams, Dot Adams and Audrey Adams.
She was predeceased by her son Russel (Cheryl), her five siblings and her grandson Adam Hansen.
Memorial services were held at the Castor Community Hall, Tuesday July 14, 2015 with Pastor Jim Culham officiating.  Cathy Schaffner presented her gift of music.
Family and friends gathered in the Castor Hall for a time of sharing and a luncheon by Michele Breum and staff. Alvina was laid to rest in Castor Municipal Cemetery with her loving grandchildren as honourary pallbearers.
In lieu of flowers, donations in Alvina’s honour may be made to an institution of your personal choice.  Condolences may be sent and forwarded to the family at www.parkviewfuneralchapels.com
