Memorable Manitobans: Alice Newhouse Fabbri (1919-2004)

Community activist.

Born in East Kildonan on 3 February 1919, daughter of Lamkpe Dal (?-1948) and Paul Cornelius Newhouse (?-1953), in 1942 she married Bert Fabbri (?-1993) and they had three children. She was particularly devoted to her special-needs daughter who lived in the family home for 58 years. She was an active member of the United Church Women, first at Point Douglas United Church and later at Grey Street United Church. In 1960, she started a youth bowling program for intellectually challenged children, and continued to organize and operate it well into her senior years. The All Stars Bowling League continues to operate in Winnipeg, supported in part by her son. She died at Winnipeg on 8 November 2004.
