Born Nov 12, 1912 in Nelson, New Brunswick, Canada, Alice lived and played on the Miramachi River in New Brunswick as a child with six sisters and one brother.

She then became a nanny in Newton for a young family and went on to become owner extraordinaire of Holden’s Taxi in Newton Centre for over 25 years until retiring in 1977. Alice was quick to laugh, and quick to take charge. She thoroughly enjoyed her family’s antics and plays, their get-togethers and a good game of cards. She loved Newton, her daily newspaper and keeping current with her family.
Alice was the devoted wife of the late Robert E. Wilson, and is survived by her children Joanne Smacula and her companion Robert of OH, Peter Wilson and his wife Marianne of Ashland, Paul Wilson and his wife Judy of CO, her sister of Agnes Kirk of Miramachi New Brunswick, 5 grandchildren and 8 great grandchildren.
