Mrs. Alice Cullum recently turned 102 years old. She was born in Walden, Saskatchewan, on December 19, 1911, to a family of two sisters and two brothers. During the depression she and her sisters supported the family by working as hair stylists. At the age of 28, Alice married Matt Cullum and then stayed home to raise their two sons.

Alice was an avid curler and Master’s Level Bridge player. She earned her Bridge Masters 100 Level Points in 1961 and continued to play the game until the age of 99.

In 1988 Alice moved to Cranbrook with her son Gary and his wife Sue.

Alice’s family enjoys longevity. Her own mother lived to 101 years of age!
