Ms. Alice has such a heart for the kids at Pioneer and they loved her so dearly. She will always be remembered as a kindhearted, loving, great woman. Ms. Alice was well respected by all who met her. We pray she can see how much everyone loves her and how much she was appreciated. I wouldn’t doubt that she’s looking down from Heaven with a watchful eye over the Pioneer crew. And perhaps she’s looking down on all the kids that she has provided that mothering spirit to over the years. Here at our house the kids loved her so, and have taken to drawing pictures for Ms. Alice and writing short notes for her to see. She is missed and loved by all.

With deepest Sympathy,
The Thornton’s

Alice was always one of the kindest people to me. I met her through work and still constantly think of her. She was wise and insightful and always had something witty to say. She had a way of picking you up when you were down and assured you that you were loved daily. She will be greatly missed by myself and by the many, many people surrounding her. Truly an amazing women.

I have known Alice nearly 2 yrs thru work. She made me feel comfortable from the first time we met. She was such a kindhearted and generous person. We sometimes would share a Chinese lunch at work . We would also talk about our families. She was such a good confidante. We shared many a laugh over silly things. Just recently we had to be CPR certified at work. Alice and I were partners working on our "dummy". I think we laughed more than we saved him. Alice seemed to know how to handle most situations at work. She was firm with the children but she also loved them fiercely. And they in return loved her. It still feels so strange to come to the front at work and not see her at the front desk. There are not enough words to express our feeling of loss. I try to keep in mind that she is in a better place but our workplace is missing a very important piece of our heart. Ms. Alice you were such an inspiration to us all. You will be sorely missed.
