Alice died when she was 71 years old, on Saturday 25 November 1961.  

Durham's first wife, Elizabeth (Lily) Cundall died in 1918, leaving their son Richard Durham Palmer, one year old, to be raised by his grandparents Richard and Sarah Ann and their unmarried daughter Alice.   Unencumbered as such, Durham sought out a new wife, and finding a likely candidate, announced it to his in-laws, Richard and Sarah Ann.    Richard and Sarah Ann, concerned that they might lose contact and control of their grandson, counter-proposed that if Durham married their other unmarried daughter Alice, they would buy them a house and keep the family together.   So Durham married Alice Cundall on 7th July 1922 and moved into their new house at 352 Atlantic Avenue, Winnipeg with Durham's son, Richard Durham Palmer, aged 5.
