Formerly of Oak Park, Alice and her family moved to Barrington in 1968. She lived at Lake Barrington Woods Retirement Center for the past 13 years. She was an avid Bears, Cubs, and Blackhawks fan, rarely missing a game. She will be dearly missed by her family and friends. Alice was a long-time member of St. Anne Women's Club, where she began friendships that lasted 45 years. Her wonderful friends at "Rent a Crowd" were very dear to her. Alice was the loving mother of David (Jeannie) Burke, Patricia (Jack) Baker, Jeannie (Greg) Kerkera, and Daniel Burke; devoted grandmother of Sarah and Allie, Scott, Chris and Tom, and Carolyn, Mike, and Kyle; dear great-grandmother of Cameron, Gavin, and Fiona, Tyler, Ellie, and Katie, and Owen; and fond sister-in-law of William and Lorraine Burke. She was preceded in death by her husband, Edmund; and sister, Dorothy Shepherd.
