Alice enjoyed baking, decorating and hosting. While her children were in elementary school she acted as “room mother” and provided many delightful treats for various parties and activities at the school. She continued her love for entertaining by planning large parties for friends and family after her children were grown. She was a fantastic hostess, cook and baker and “made the best chocolate chip cookies” in the world. Her avid collection of cow memorabilia was pretty impressive. She will be deeply missed by all her very near and dear friends, family and neighbors.
