Aunt Alice had a gentle and beautiful soul. She brightened every room, and touched the hearts of many. She will be missed. May she Rest In Peace surrounded by all of God’s angels in heaven.

I will always be grateful for having another sister-in-love who kept pushing us to go on cruises with them. We finally agreed after we both retired and went on the wonderful Alaskan cruise. There were 3 other cruises with them and the last one included 2 other brothers and their wives. No more pain and suffering for our dear sister but we will miss her. Adelle and Wade

I've known Alice since we started at Johnston-Willis Hospital School of Nursing in 1961. She and I have remained friends and have remained in correspondence by telephone or by letter or card. Some of the phone calls were a little long and usually got into what we remembered from all those years ago. Sometimes, we called each other just to "pick each other's brain" about someone or something pertaining to JWH.
I will miss our talks and the times we spent with Pete and Alice at their home. Their house was where we convened each year after we attended our annual alumnae luncheon.
Rest in peace, Alice. May each of her family be comforted by the HOPE OF THE RESURRECTION.
