Alice Marie Biasucci (nee: Piitz, born in Penetanguishene, 1921) passed away peacefully at Amica Unionville, on Friday, April 16th, 2021, in her 100th year.
Beloved wife of the late Wilbert “Bert” Joseph Biasucci. Loving mother of Anne (Markham), Ellen (MacTier), and Rhonda (Calgary). Dear sister of Alma Brace (Toronto), and the late Fred Piitz (Parry Sound), and Edward Piitz (Ottawa). Forever remembered by her nieces, nephews, other relatives, and friends.
Alice was a kind, gentle woman who enjoyed the simple things in life, her family, her home and her garden. She loved to laugh, displaying a quiet sense of humour with a twinkle in her eye. After teacher’s college, she left her beloved birthplace to instruct in a number of small towns, including Britt. There she met Bert, a CPR railroader. They married and made MacTier home where they raised their family. She enjoyed fishing on Georgian Bay, savouring the rugged natural beauty while patiently waiting for a nibble. She rejoiced in the arrival of spring blossoms and summer’s blueberry harvest. Mom was happiest when outdoors. Mom displayed a real love of learning throughout her life. A voracious reader, she was keen to expand her vocabulary and would often explain the Latin derivation of words. She never lost interest in current events, politics and the CBC News. She encouraged and supported her daughters in their individual educational pursuits and career paths. Her pleasant nature cultivated a broad circle of friends and family. She was surrounded by a tremendous community of companionship and support, enabling Mom to remain in her own home, living independently, until she was 96. She gave back to her community and her faith, working tirelessly for the CWL.
Alice was much loved by everyone she met but especially by her daughters. While she has left us, we take comfort in hoping that Mom is now enjoying a strong body and mind and is enveloped in the loving companionship of Bert, family and friends.
Private Family Visitation and Funeral Mass will be held at St. James the Great Roman Catholic Church, MacTier. Interment MacTier Union Cemetery.
As expressions of sympathy, donations to Hospice West Parry Sound, MacTier Public Library, or the Canadian Cancer Society would be greatly appreciated.
So sorry to hear of Alice's passing. She was a great friend and neighbour.
Hugs and prayers to the family.

Im sorry to hear of your mothers passing.She was a lovely lady and a wonderful teacher. She would always stop and ask how we were doing when she used to go for walks. She used to go to my great grandmothers and check on her many, many years ago. R.I.P.-cathie morgan
