Alyce Chapman Obituary
Alyce Cole Chapman loving mother, sister, and aunt, departed this life 08/09/2014 at the age of 91. As a member of the Women's Army Corp, she proudly served her country in WWII, making over 20 crossings on board military transport ships through enemy waters. Alyce often said that she changed her maiden name from Kolodnicka to Cole because Cole was the shortest name in the NY phone book!
She is pre-deceased by her parents, three sisters and their spouses, husband Lee and brother-in-law Ed (Stephanie's husband); She is survived by her loving daughter Debbie and her spouse June; her beloved sister Stephanie with whom she served in the WAC; her beloved brother Victor and his spouse Mary; and numerous nieces and nephews. Alyce lived in Fort Worth, TX, and was an active member of St. Rita's Catholic Church for much of her life until health issues required a change in care and location. In September, 2012 Alyce moved to Houston and in October became a resident of the Silverado Care - Cypresswood Community where she enjoyed life and was loved by staff and residents alike.
Alyce's family is extremely grateful for the extraordinary care given by Ms. Helen Palmer, the staff of Patient Caregivers, Silverado At Home, Silverado Care, and Silverado Hospice. Alyce's family is also extremely grateful to Alyce's special friends Betty Benoit, and Mary and Dave Leadbetter for their friendship, support, and care when Alyce lived in Fort Worth.
Funeral mass will be held 10:30am Tuesday, August 19th at St. Rita Catholic Church, 5550 E. Lancaster Ave., Fort Worth, Texas 75211; Interment to follow at Dallas-Fort Worth National Cemetery.
In lieu of flowers, please make contributions in Alyce's name to the veterans' group, SPCA animal shelter, or the aphasia, dementia, or Alzheimer's Society of your choice.
