Alice touched many. She was unwavering in pride of her family, her Irish heritage, and instilling the value of education in her children and grandchildren. We remember Alice for her selfless devotion to her husband, family and friends, love of children, her warmth, kindness, laughter, and brilliant intellect. We love you Alice, Wife, Mom, Grandma, Friend... You will forever be in our hearts and prayers. May the Irish angels shine upon you.
