COREN, Alice Ruth (Miller) 93, South Yarmouth, MA passed away July 7, 2014 from cancer. Born and raised in the Attleboro/North Attleboro area, Alice received a Bachelor's Degree in Education at Simmons College (Boston, MA) and received her Masters of Education from Wheaton (Norton, MA). When not in the classroom, Alice headed up fundraisers for numerous academic scholarships in the community. Even in retirement, she never stopped teaching - a Bridge Life Master, she ran a duplicate bridge game in Dennis and South Yarmouth for many years. Alice was a natural entertainer, an avid reader with a mind for numbers, a gifted cook, and always quick to laugh. Petite in stature, but mighty in spirit, Alice was a true force to be reckoned with. A devoted wife, a loving mother, a loyal sister, a kind friend, a beloved Nana. Alice is survived by her sons Steven, Gerald and Daniel Coren, daughter in law Rose Marie Coren, grandsons Samuel and Gregory Coren, granddaughter Stefanie Coren, and great grandchildren. She is predeceased by her husband Dr. Simon Coren, parents Irving and Lillian Miller, and sister Sybil Miller.
