Obituary for Alice Jarian (Vartanian)

It is with very heavy hearts, we announce the passing of our dear mother…Alice Jarian at Hilltop Manor LTC, Cambridge, Ontario on Sunday, December 17, 2023,
at age 97 years. She was born, raised, and lived all her life in Galt, Ontario. Born July 2, 1926, to Safar and Ovsana Vartanian, a family proud of their Armenian Heritage. She leaves behind, daughter Linda and husband Frank Foldy, son John and wife Marion, and grandchildren Jason and Dennis and many great-grandchildren. Predeceased by her husband Edward (2008), her sister Bergie Gleiser (1988), husband Harvey (2010), brother Vartan Vartanian (2002) and good friend Archie Corkigian (2023). Mom lived a long and happy life, always with a smile on her face. She was in her home for 70 years, ‘til moving at the age of 90 to Heritage Meadows, then to Hilltop Manor for the past 10 months. Her passion was playing cards of all kinds, from Euchre, Bridge, Cribbage and of course Poker. Casinos, she said “was just for entertainment”, but she was there to win! Alice loved the Toronto Blue Jays and Toronto Maple Leafs, and hardly missed a Cambridge Hornet game. Mom travelled the world, cruised the Caribbean several times and had an active life, most people just dreamed of. There will be no funeral, cremation has taken place, and a Celebration of Life will be announced at a later date. As expressions of sympathy, donations to the Cambridge Memorial Hospital Foundation or The Alzheimer Society would be appreciated by the family.
