June 9, 1939 ~ March 19, 2020 (age 80)


Publicover, Alice Irene 

(nee Kirkham) 


Suddenly, surrounded by her two devoted daughters, on Thursday, March 19th, 2020 at the Queensway Carleton Hospital.

Cherished wife of the late John C. Publicover (March 18th, 2019).  Loving mother of Beryl Henderson and Doreen Purdy.  Caring grandmother of Ryan Kromer (Colorado) and Rebecca Crump.  Doting great grandmother of Layla Crump and Lucas Strange and special niece Rhonda Wilson, daughter of William and Irene Kirkham.  One of 14 siblings, predeceased by Dorothy, Arthur, Irwin, Harold, Helen, Kenny, Kathleen, Lois and Mellie.  Survived by Edna (Lloyd) and Eric (Eleanor) and sister-in-law Marion, as well as many nieces, nephews and friends.  She will be greatly missed as she was a total inspiration to many; kind, generous, loyal and always there with a helping hand. 

Due to current circumstances, a Celebration of Life will held at a later date at the Garden Chapel of Tubman Funeral Homes.  In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Scleroderma Society, a disease she lived with for 44 years.  Condolences, tributes and donations may be made at
