Mavis M (Pike) Alain went to meet her Lord and Saviour at the Charlotte County Hospital, St. Stephen, New Brunswick, on Saturday November 4th, 2023, after a sudden illness.

Mavis was active in the Union Street Atlantic Baptist Church where she taught Sunday School and served as treasurer.   She also volunteered at Hospice of Charlotte, Lincourt Manor and was a member of  the Atlantic Charter Chapter IODE, which had planned on presenting her with a certificate acknowledging 25 years of service.  She was also recognised by Big Brothers, Big Sisters of Saint John for her many years mentoring students at Milltown Elementary School and St Stephen Middle School.

Mavis also enjoyed square and round dancing for many years, beginning with the Shootin’ Stars in Fredericton and finishing with The Town and Country Squares in St. Stephen.

While living in Fredericton, New Brunswick, she was proud of her employment with the New Brunswick Medical Society, NB Law Society and Easter Seals New Brunswick

Mavis worked at helping set up The Chocolate Museum in St Stephen and then spent several years working for Home Support Services.  Mavis loved her interaction with her clients.

Since her retirement, Mavis kept busy quilting (she believed that the person who died with the most fabric was the winner…….she didn’t get that award but was in the running).  She has gifted many, many quilts to family and friends.  She also enjoyed reading, gardening and making teddy bears (with real and fun fur) as well as many other crafts.

She is survived by her husband of almost 45 years (plus another three years together), Roger Alain, her daughter Christina Cook (Earl) of Fort Saint John, British Columbia and stepdaughter, Lynette Alain and partner, Roy of Jamaica, granddaughter Megan, grandson Robert and great-grandson Adam.  She is also survived by her sister Anita, brother Dwayne, several cousins, nieces and nephews.  She also leaves behind special friends including Joanne, Carol and Bertha.

At the time of her death, Mavis was eagerly awaiting the arrival of her daughter, granddaughter, and great grandson for special visit.  Mavis would also want to mention her special niece Stephanie, (Love you to the moon and back) and Natalie and families.

Mavis was predeceased by her parents, Anna and Burpee Pike, one son, James, sister Nila, brother and sister-in-law, Marcus and Joyce Pike. 

A Celebration of her life will be held at Union Street Atlantic Baptist Church, St Stephen, NB on Thursday November 9, 2023 at 2 pm.  The family will receive friends at the church on Thursday from 12pm until service time.

In lieu of flowers the family has asked for donations in Mavis’ memory to Easter Seals NB, IODE, or a charity of one’s choice.  Condolences may be sent to the family online at
