Alice Aileen Ayles has passed away at the age of 91.

Aileen leaves to mourn her two sons: Jeff (Tricia) and Dean (Bev); daughter Carole (Lane) Nordell as well as five grandchildren: Carla (Stephen), Miriam (Sean), Christopher (Danielle), Jennifer (Andrew) and Daria (Max). Aileen was predeceased by her husband Charles “Chuck” Ayles and her parents Vivian and Mary Brown.

Aileen was an enthusiastic partner to Chuck in their adventures in Nigeria and Zambia bringing advanced education through the Canadian government to these developing nations. She was an intellectually curious and well-read retired nurse and a great mom and grandmother who could answer just about any question about world history. She will be greatly missed.

Due to pandemic restrictions a service will not be held. Donations in lieu of flowers can be made to a charity of your choice.

  1. Jeff, Dean, Carole and your families
    I am so sorry to hear of Aileen’s passing. I have three strong memories of Aileen. First was of Chuck and Aileen’s wedding. You were not there of course but we have that wonderful picture of all the family members including the senior Browns and Ayles’.
    The second is more extended and it is my admiration of the adventure and contribution your families made in Nigeria and Zambia (we still have a small souvenir mask) and the third memory is of the video interviews, during our family reunion in August 2012 at Rocky Mountain House, with Elizabeth Mohn, Leonis Ayles, Chuck Ayles and Aileen Aileen.
    Our thoughts are with you. Burton and Leslie

    • Thank you so much Burton and Leslie. I’m so grateful that we have the video interview. I was just watching it a few weeks ago and it is such a treat although bittersweet. That generation of our family are the best!

  2. Our sincerest condolences go out to your families, Jeff, Dean and Carole. We are sure you will Remember the good times always and treasure them in you hearts.
