Alice was a good neighbor. She easily expressed concerns about our families. When Cliff died of brain cancer in 2006 she brought over a huge container of Italian beef with buns. She said it would be quick snacks and meals for our out of town company. Her thoughtfulness is still remembered. Karen Scott

For Andrea...I wanted to say that I have fond memories of your Mother when we were in 3rd or 4th grade, she fed us the best breakfasts. I missed you terribly when you moved away. I'm sorry for your loss. Cindy Babrocky

Alice and my mom have known each other forever, so I've watched how a friendship can endure a lifetime. They have been able to talk to each other through the last two years at the nursing home for which our family is grateful. We will miss Alice. My mom sends her love and says God Bless you dear friend, I will miss you. Condolences to the Sternberg/Broviak family. Alice was a special lady.
