Waterville: Alice E. Copp Wing of Waterville passed away after a short illness on Friday, July 16, 2010 at Oak Grove in Waterville.

She was born in New Horton, New Brunswick, Canada on December 24, 1920 and was the daughter of the late Cora Fiddler and Robert Stewart Copp.

Alice arrived in Madison, Maine at age 9 and was brought up by Mr. and Mrs. Allen B. Copp. Her love remained until the end for Buddy and Joan and their family. Alice graduated in 1938 from Madison High School where she was Queen of her Senior Prom. She received her nursing degree in Portland and spent her professional life as a registered nurse; first in the Lewiston Auburn area and then in the Boston, Massachusetts hospitals. In 2006 she moved to the Waterville area to be near her daughter and family.

Alice loved to read and enjoyed knitting when her vision allowed. She was a "very interesting" personality and always an individual in her opinions about current events, politics, and family. In her fifties she became an American citizen, and in 2008, she proudly cast her first vote in a presidential election in which she voted for Barack Obama.

Family was always important to Alice and she did the best she could do help and support her children and grandchildren.
She is predeceased by daughter Kathleen Wing Jones who passed away in 1993 and her granddaughter Lisa Jones Neal who passed away in 2008.

She will be missed by her daughter Deborah and her husband Daniel of Waterville; her Grandson Mark Jones and his wife Sandy of Weymouth, Massachusetts; Granddaughter Jennifer Jones Powers and her husband Terry of S.Portland; granddaughter Rebekah Beaulieu of Newton, Massachusetts and Grandson Damon Beaulieu of Waterville. Alice's "greats" included great grandchildren Elizabeth and Michael Neal and Joey Brennan, Taylor and Ryan Jones.

Visiting hours will be held 2-4PM Sunday July 18, 2010 at Redington Funeral Home 5 Park Street Waterville. A graveside service will be held at a later date to be announced. The family would like to thank Dr. Roland Knausenberger, Inland Hospital, Oak Grove and Woodlands for all the wonderful care and support they gave Alice. Those who wish may make donations in Alice's memory to the American Cancer Association.
