    There was no greater woman than as she will always be known to me as Aunt Alice, she might not have been blood family but she was family! She was an amazing little lady. She lives her animals & loved life! She will be greatly missed by everyone! To her family we extend our sympathies!

    Joe, I am so sorry for your loss. I have such great memories of Alice and my Mother working together for so many years. Alice continued to stay in touch even after my Mother’s passing. She was a beautiful person inside and out. I will truly miss her.

      To Alice’s family

      I will always remember her. My mother, Ethel Norris, worked with Alice for years at
      Food Fair/Pantry Pride. People always thought they were sisters, because they wore
      their hair the same way. Always remember it being a family atmosphere especially
      when we would go to the store. Please know that you Joe and your family are in my
      thoughts and prayers.
