Obituary for Hilery Ruth McAlpine

Hilery Ruth McAlpine (nee White) passed away peacefully into the presence of Jesus on Thursday, September 10, 2020 at South Bruce Grey Health Centre - Kincardine in her 72nd year. She bravely fought an inoperable brain tumour in her last year with never a complaint. She got weaker quickly in her last week, but was alert much of the time and able to have final visits with family and friends in her last two days for which we are grateful. Then she passed into the Lord’s presence later in the night.

Hilery will be forever missed by her loving family; her husband Ian of 47 years and their three children, Jonathan (Alicyn), Jennifer and Laura, grandchildren Alicya, Justus, Aubrey and Adalyn – children of Jonathan and Alicyn. She will be missed her brothers, Simon (Glenda) and Andrew (Janet) along with several nephews and nieces.

Hilery was a great home-maker, wife, mother and grandma. She loved her Lord, and she expressed much of that through leading and taking part in Bible Studies, Sunday School work, being a church librarian, home schooling her children and especially in her love of music. She sang in various choirs over the years. She enjoyed playing the organ and piano, listening to classical, and church music, and instilling that love into her family. She was a faithful member of the local centre of the Royal Canadian College of Organists, and until her illness was the organist at St. Thomas Anglican Church in Walkerton. She was a wonderful help mate to her husband as the wife of a minister as they served in various Anglican Churches in Southwestern Ontario, and one Congregational Church. Her family and friends will dearly miss her, but we know she is in a better place with the Lord Jesus whom she loved and served faithfully all through her life.

A private visitation and service by invitation only was held at the Walkerton Pentecostal Church followed by burial at Purdy Cemetery.

As expressions of sympathy, donations to Wycliffe Bible Translators, Royal Canadian College of Organists – Grey-Bruce Centre, or St. Thomas’ Anglican Church Organ Fund, would be appreciated by the family. Cards available at Cameron’s of Walkerton (519-881-1273) Donations and condolences may also be made online at

Ian, Kris and I wanted to let you and all the family know that you are in our thoughts and prayers. Hilery, as an accomplished musician must be enjoying far more than we can imagine, the worship of heaven. We share a small part of your grieving, but are comforted that it is not "as those who have no hope". May the assurance of Jesus's resurrection be your rock in these days. With love, John and Kris Wood.

We look forward to being reunited where there will be no pain or sickness. Sincerely, Ruth Davis

Dear Ian and family: Saying good-bye to a loved one is never easy, but knowing that Hilery is with the Lord Jesus will bring peace and strength. May His grace be with you all.
