Alice Foster, 73, a resident of the Greenwich area for nearly 50 years, died on Wednesday, March 26, 2014.
Alice was born in Queens, NY, on April 9, 1940, to William and Alice Hellawell. In 1960, Alice married Pierce (Pete) Foster. They resided in Old Greenwich and had three children together: Pierce Jr., Jennifer, and Thomas. They divorced in 1972.
Alice was employed for many years at GE Capital in Stamford. She was an avid bridge player, and enjoyed playing in groups and online. She was a self-described "foodie," and an accomplished amateur chef.
