I grew up in Silver Acres Community Church (1976-1993) and Alice was a mentor and like a second mother to me. I don't know where I would be today without the love and guidance of that church and Alice. She touched so many lives in such a profound way. She was always there for me and my grandmother. Not just Sunday school and Wed. night but sharing a cup of afternoon tea, Thanksgiving with her family in Norco, bowling, game night, you name it. Heck, she even chaperoned my first date. She truly is one in a million!

My prayer and condolences are with the family. I have wonderful memories of Alice, who was my Jet Cadet Leader and mentor. She invested her life to share God's Love and His Word with us. She was truly unstoppable.
It is a comfort to know she is with her Lord.and Savior and someday we will see her again.

Alice was affectionately known to me and her past coworkers at State Disability Service as "Little Alice", but, she was "Larger than Life". She drove a huge car, spoke in a big commanding voice, and lived life to the fullest.

She was always an optimist, and always had an encouraging word or words to buoy your spirits. "You are doing great" was a common phrase. She rarely complained, despite all the physical trials she went through the last few years.

She loved people, and people loved her. She especially enjoyed sharing good food, and frequently invited my family and friends to join her. We shared many great meals where many stories were told and many belly laughs were had.

She enjoyed visiting new places, and especially loved taking cruises with her family and her friends. One friend, Estella Loggins was kind enough to plan many of those cruises and enjoyed accompanying her. She invited me to go on cruises in the past,and now I really wish that I would had been able to go.

Alice made an impact on everyone she met. They "Broke The Mold" when they made "Little Alice". She was very "Special". She will be sorely missed by many, including me, my Husband Wayne, my daughter Amy, Amy's Husband Brian, and my son Alan.

Tina, Pancho, Jeanette, Fran, My thoughts and prayers are with all of you.
Love you guys.

Alice was a remarkable person. We shared an apartment in Santa Ana for several years in the late 70's. I remember that she liked to keep the clock set 15 minutes fast so she wouldn't be late. She was always on the go, always doing something with the kids at church, and she was never late! Wherever she went, she would run into someone who knew her. No one who met her ever forgot her. She will be missed by all of us who knew her wonderful sense of humor, her cheerful disposition, and her unwavering love for the Lord.

Sincere condolences to my Zandsta cousins and their families.

I'm recalling with fond memories "Alice in charge" during family visits to Tante Jetske and Uncle Jack's dairy when all of us were just kids.

Alice was loved by so many. She was the best youth leader EVER. She took us all over the place in her Malibu with the peddle blocks. Never let anything stop her. I have so many wonderful memories of her. What a woman

I will always remember Alice fondly. I grew up in Santa Ana, and lived on 5th st. Alice was always so sweet to me and my girlfriends Nancy Rose,Gail Wiles,Patsy Vega to name a few. If Alice wasn't taking us to Silver Acres Church she was driving us to the movies, getting us a ice cream or sharing The Lord with us. I want to give my deepest condolences to the Zanstra family. Especially Frances and Pancho who were my friends growing up. You were blessed with a wonderful sister and I know she will be missed, but not forgotten.
