Obituary

DUNN, Alice (nee Skywork)

Peacefully in her 102nd year in Whitby on November 11, 2020 with her family at her side. Loving wife to Norman who predeceased her in 2003. Caring mother of Alan (Sharon) of Whitby, and Lorne (Geness) predeceased in 2009; stepmother of Barbara McAulay (Ken) of Ballantrae; and proud Grandmother to Carter and Nicole.

Alice was born in Streeville, Manitoba to parents Roy (1959) and Lena Skywork (1957), predeceased by her brothers Peter (1999) (Eileen) and Johnny (1964). Alice was married to Russell Cherneski in 1934, and then Norm in 1958.

In 1962 Alice and Norm moved to Oshawa where they remained happily married until Norm’s passing. Alice volunteered with the Oshawa General Hospital’s Women’s Auxiliary and the Oshawa Art Gallery. She was the Bridal Consultant at The Gift House in downtown Oshawa attaining her accreditation as a Registered Bridal Consultant with the National Bridal Service. In this role, that she enjoyed greatly, she guided many brides and their families with their wedding plans and etiquette. During this time and into the early 2000’s Alice and Norm travelled the world touring locations in Europe, the continental US, Alaska, and south-east Asia.

A longtime member of the Northminster United Church in Oshawa. She will forever be remembered for her positive and gracious attitude, classiness, and kindness.

Thank you to the staff at Fairview Lodge in Whitby for their care of Alice.
