KONDUROS, Alice Louise, (nee McDonald) of Guelph and formerly Leamington, Ontario

Posted by on July 5, 2014

Konduros Alice Picture copyKONDUROS, Alice Louise, (nee McDonald).

Born May19, 1926, in Shawville, Quebec. Died July 2, 2014, in Guelph, Ontario, age 88.

Alice was raised in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, the youngest of 8 children, and the daughter of a Presbyterian minister. Independent from a young age, she left home and moved to Ottawa during WW2 to work for the Bank of Canada when she was only 17. She had her purse snatched by a fellow on a bicycle who was later caught by police. She remembered initially opening her mouth but no scream came out. It was written up in the paper and her father sent her oldest brother to check in on her.

The next year Alice went to Montreal for training as a nurse and graduated in 1948 from Royal Victoria Hospital. Her graduation had been delayed for a year when she fell on the ice of Mount Royal and broke her arm. She also received a degree in nursing science at Queen’s University in Kingston. She worked in a veterans’ hospital caring for WW2 soldiers, especially burn victims.

She enjoyed baseball and fondly remembered her trips to Cleveland, on DC-3 airplanes, to watch games.

Alice worked as a VON in small towns throughout Ontario, driving a car, which was how she met Plato Konduros in Leamington in 1953. They married in 1955 and had four children: Diana, Bill, Bob and Jay. She later resumed her nursing career with Extendicare in Mississauga from 1975 to 1994.

Alice read constantly and loved long walks. She got to travel in Europe and Scotland, the USSR, and later France?. She made a point of visiting Juno Beach, the site where Canadian troops landed on D-Day.

She was the anchor of our family, sometimes a dour Scot, sometimes a Robbie Burns Scot but always kind, gentle and unassuming. Her wry humour never left her to the end even though dementia diagnosed in 2009 robbed her of much else. She fought it valiantly.

Alice is sorely missed by Plato, her children, daughters in law Kathy, Dina and Jolanta and her grandchildren, April, Laura, Gary, Tamara and Kristi. ?She is also missed by her sister Catherine who turns 102 on August 6, and her sisters in law, Helen, Diane and Glenna, brother in law Phil, nieces and nephews Elena and Cathy, Jamie, Mary Ellen and Chris, Marilyn and Zoe, Chris and Jill, Larry, Lewis, Doug, Garth, Fairlee, Shelley, Lelia, Cathy and Charlynn, and Sharon.

She was last a member of the Doon Presbyterian Church in Kitchener.

?Many thanks to St. Joseph’s Health Centre and Guelph General Hospital where she was cared for so well and affectionately. Visiting at the Reid Funeral Home & Reception Centre, 14 Russell Street Leamington on Monday July 7, 2014 from 12 noon until time of Funeral Service to celebrate Alice’s life at 1 p.m. Rev. Thomas J. Kay officiating. Interment Evergreen Memorial Park Cemetery, Leamington. Friends may send condolences at www.reidfuneralhome.ca.
