Alice enjoyed playing games, music, crafts and her flowers. Her children remember her for all the home baked bread she made. In the summer she would put up enough canned products to last for the winter. Alice was family oriented. Her family was the most important thing in her life. Her family all knew how much she loved them. In 1999 Alice moved to Cambridge Health Care Center at the same time as her husband George. After a brief period of adjustment Alice loved living there. Her family would often come to visit her and were told she didn’t have time to visit them because something was going on and she couldn’t miss it.
Alice will be missed by all who knew he
