O'KEEFE, Alice Marie
(July 8, 1936 - April 7, 2014)
The Chronicle Herald, Halifax, April 12, 2014

Age 77, of Halifax. It is with very saddened hearts that we announce the passing of a wonderful lady, Alice O'Keefe (nee Lewis) on April 7, 2014 after a courageous battle with ovarian cancer for the last 8 years. She passed peacefully with her loving family by her side. Born in Bell Island, Newfoundland, she was the eldest daughter of the late Albert Alfred Lewis and Anne Lewis (Reynolds). She will be greatly missed by her husband of 51 years, Robert Ian O'Keefe; daughters Anne-Marie Chartrand (Michael) and Suzanne Lewis (Robert); grandchildren Deborah Lewis, Brianna Lewis, Bradley Chartrand & Hailey Chartrand; sisters Margaret Lewis of Bell Island, NL; Angela Johnson (Gord) of Bell Island, NL; brothers Raymond Lewis (Madeline) of Bell Island, NL; Albert Lewis (Linda) of Cambridge, ON; William Lewis of Harbour Grace, NL; Joseph Lewis (Ramona) of Lower Sackville, NS; many nieces and nephews and numerous extended family members. Meeting her in Heaven with loving open arms are her brothers Kevin, Jeremiah (Jer), Patrick (in infancy) and sisters Annie Littlejohn and Mary Mazerall.

In 1958, Alice left her home of Bell Island, NL before the mines were closed, and in 1961, met the love of her life, Bob. She had a very full life and always found the humour in everything. Her laugh was contagious and she enjoyed having a good time with all her family and friends and maintained her sense of humour throughout her illness. A true artistic, creative & talented soul, she could make anything out of nothing. She was always planning parties, wedding receptions, anniversary celebrations etc. making all of the decorations by hand, decorated many cakes and made wedding and bridesmaid dresses. She could knit, crochet or sew anything - most times without using a pattern. Anything she created was done from her heart. At the time of her passing, she was in the middle of planning yet another party and had numerous photo projects on the go. She liked to be busy and was so extremely creative that it poured out of her by way of numerous projects on the go all the time. She immensely enjoyed time with family and close friends, sharing stories and the simple pleasures of life.

Alice lived like she was living - not like she was dying. She was a very loving mother to her two daughters and the best grandmother to her four grandchildren whom she loved dearly. She was very proud of them all! Her legacy is her grandchildren. They will miss her greatly and will carry memories of her with them throughout their lives. Alice was the matriarch of the Lewis family. She will be sorely missed by everyone in her very large family and by all that had the pleasure of knowing her. A very special thank you to the Nova Scotia Cancer Centre nurses especially Thelma, Dr. Grimshaw, Dr. Bentley, Dr. Kieser, gynecologic oncology residents and nurses of 5A in the Centennial Building. Also the chemotherapy nurses on the 11th floor of the Victoria Building.

Heaven has received another angel, but the world is a sadder place without her. Family flowers only please. It was Alice's wish for donations to be made to charities that helped the less fortunate such as Big Brothers Big Sisters, The Salvation Army or Nova Scotia Food Bank or another charity of that sort of your choice. Visitation at TK Barnard's Funeral Home, 3460 DutchVillage Rd on Monday, April 14, 2014 from 7pm-9pm. Funeral service will be held at Saint Benedict Catholic Church, 45 Radcliffe Drive, Halifax on Tuesday, April 15, 2014 at 10:30am

Kay loved life, especially outdoor activities like fishing, hunting, and skiing. Her love of dogs, particularly Great Danes, was a trademark on the StFX campus. She and Don had a kennel where they had Labs and bred hunting beagles for many years. Kay was an excellent cook, as can be attested by the many guests of her home. Kay firmly believed that all problems were solvable using the Newfoundland Dictionary of Common Sense and the appropriate sociable amenities.
