There are too many memories to choose one to give enough importance to our Aunt Alice. She was truly the leader of the family, always instilling the need of keeping the family in touch even from miles away. We looked forward to each hand written note she would write about her, Uncle Bob, Debbie, David, and family. We will miss her. Condolences to David, Debbie, and family. From Kim, Nathan, Samantha, and family.

My Aunt Alice was the best Aunt ever!! I spent a lot of time with her when I was little and growing up. She took me on picnics at Packard Park near the Kenley Players where all the broadway shows were. We would wait on the movie stars to come out and get their autographs. I still have those autographs. She always had time for me. Very few people are lucky enough to have an Aunt like I did. I was always at her house, and later when Debbie and David arrived, I babysat them for my Aunt Alice and Uncle Bob when they needed a night out. I would go to watch Debbie who was in gymnastics, and go to watch David play baseball with my Aunt & Uncle.
My Aunt came from a large family (6). She was the oldest, so she was very good with people. She was preceded in death by two brothers (Robert Krisher, Sr., and James Krisher), and two sisters (Ruth Fath and Jean Britton).
I was glad I saw her in Missouri when she still knew me. We talked about old times and she still remembered all of them. I will miss her greatly.
