Alysanne (Alice) Wilson Doubet, 88, formerly of 1324 South Shore Dr. died peacefully at St. Mary's Home, a year and a half after suffering a stroke. Alice was born in Schenectady, N.Y. the daughter of the late Harold F. and Alice Quigley Wilson. Her father's transfer with the General Electric brought the family to Erie. Alice attended Mercyhurst Seminary/Prep School and Case Western Reserve in Cleveland, graduating with a BS in Chemistry. Soon after graduation she married Alexis F. (Bus) Doubet and enjoyed 57 years of marriage until his death in 2003. Alice received her teaching certification in secondary mathematics from Villa Maria College and her masters in guidance and counseling from Gannon University. She spent twenty years teaching and counseling in the Erie School District, primarily at Roosevelt Jr. High and Strong Vincent High Schools. After retiring Alice continued her teaching by her membership in the Erie Bridge Association where she was a player, director, life master and teacher of duplicate bridge. She truly loved the bridge center and all the wonderful times she had there. Additionally, Alice had a unique sense of humor, loved golf, playing the piano, reading and especially traveling, vacationing and enjoying parties and every type of social event with her and Bus's large circle of friends. The memories, for us their children, are countless and endearing. Alice is preceded in death by her daughter, Patricia Doubet in 1984, her brothers, Harold (Harry) and John (Jack) Wilson, her niece, Judith Seidel, nephew, Harold (Budd) Wilson and her sisters-in-law, Sister Mary Mark Doubet, SSJ and Rita Doubet Seidel.
