Alice was active in church, serving as a Sunday School Teacher, and singing in the choir. She was a member of the Golden Rascals senior group, a past president of the Ladies Philoptochos Society, and volunteered for many years at the church festivals.

Alice loved to travel, go to concerts, museums, theater, movies, as well as knitting and reading. She enjoyed her time at Narragansett, the casino, and antique shopping. Alice was also a Friend of Laphroig. To make a long story short, she loved life! “Here’s lookin’ at you, kid”! A loving mother, and grandmother.
