Alice was happy with her life. She had the ability to greet each day with eagerness, to meet the opportunities of the day. She enjoyed reading, visiting with friends, and talking to her sister on the phone. Her greatest joy in life was being a wife, mother and grandmother. She always treated them with love and kindness. We will remember her lovely smile, quiet gentle ways and the joy she brought to her family.
