Alice Grace Grudzinski

1927 - 2014

Alice Grace Grudzinski, 87, formerly of Racine passed away at Manorcare Health Services on Friday,

March 14, 2014.

She was born on Jan. 22, 1927, daughter of the late Arthur and Anna (nee: Williams) Fox. She had been a Racine resident for most of her life. She met her future husband while on an outing with the Racine Muni Cycle Club. She was married in 1948 to John Anthony Grudzinski, who preceded her in death in 1993.

Alice graduated from Horlick High and worked for a time at Western Printing, and after her marriage, she oil-colorized portraits for a downtown Racine photo studio. She later worked as a Teachers Aide for a number of years at the Giese and Olympia Brown elementary schools within the Racine Unified School District. Alice was a member of the Racine Art Guild, took many classes at Wustum Museum, and enjoyed expressing herself through her watercolor paintings which she displayed yearly at the Racine Starving Artists Fair. Alice also enjoyed dancing with her husband as members of the Tanglefoot dance club, playing league golf at Shoops and Ives Grove, and vacationing in Hawaii and Sweden with her husband, John, and all around the U.S. with her good friend, Del Roberts. Alice was an active and faithful member of First Evangelical Lutheran Church and for more than 70 years. She was her husbands steadfast caretaker through his many medical trials and tribulations. Al was courageous and even-tempered; a great friend and loving role model for all who knew her, and will be sorely missed.

Alice is survived by her sons, John (Jane) Grudzinski of Kenosha, and Bruce Grudzinski of Brown Deer; grandchildren Lauren (Grudzinski) Bush of Milwaukee, Kevin Rowley, Kim Anderson, and Kristine Rowley, all of Kenosha; seven great grandchildren and one great, great grandchild as well as other relatives and friends.
