Alice was born in Springfield, MA, the only child of the late Helen and Jack Costigan. She was a proud graduate of the College of New Rochelle in 1944. Alice was a longtime resident of Longmeadow, MA and Fort Lauderdale, FL prior to her move to Stamford in 2002.

Gammy was simply the best. She was the embodiment of grace, dignity, kindness and class and a true diamond. We will miss her unconditional love, walks on the beach, back scratches, shopping excursions and lunch at Lord & Taylor and those wicked games of Scrabble. But most of all, we'll miss that brilliant smile. Thank You, Gammy, for being the finest of all of us. We'll love you forever.
