In Loving Memory Of

Alma Dolen


Alma Eliza Dolen, resident of Fourth Creek, formerly of Cochrane, passed away Tuesday, February 20, 2018, in Spirit River, at the age of 98 years,

Alma was born on January 8, 1920 in Cochrane, AB. She was raised on a mixed farm north of Cochrane and went to the Horse Creek School.

She married Francis Dolen June 21, 1947. They lived the first five years of their marriage on the old Dolen farm. Wanting a new adventure, they came north to check out the Peace Country in 1951. They homesteaded in what is now Fourth Creek in 1953 with three small kids in tow. Here she remained until her passing.
