She was 90 years old and had been an active member of the Casa De Las Campanas community for eleven years with her husband. Alice arrived on January 6, 1924 in Des Moines, Iowa the second of 4 children born to Helen and William McCarthy.

In 1949, she married Bob McKahan in the Log Chapel at Notre Dame where he was a graduate. Between 1950-57, Alice was a busy young Mom after having four children in rapid succession. The family of six moved numerous times due to Bob's career at AT&T before settling in a lovely Tudor home in Winnetka, Illinois. Alice was very active in her Catholic church, her children's schools and the local community. Those who knew Alice remember her as a caring, loving mother and wife who placed high value on her strong religious faith, family and friends. She never forgot a birthday or special occasion by sending one of her signature Hallmark cards, signed "Love and prayers."

Surviving Alice is her devoted husband, Bob and their children; Don McKahan, Kathleen Priest, Lindsey Carry and Jane McKahan - Jones. Also surviving, is her sister, Maureen Anderson; and brother, Bill McCarthy who both live in Rancho Bernardo and shared many happy occasions with her.

Bob was born in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, then he and his family moved to Monrovia, CA, where he would grow up and meet and marry his wife of forty years, Anna. He attended Monrovia High and graduated in 1971. He used his skills learned to work his way from Junior Buyer at Teledyne to Executive Vice President of the Ensenada Zircon Plant.

Robert enjoyed the outdoors and loved to camp, hike, run, bike and participate in marathons. He also enjoyed doing yard-work, listening to music, and spending time with his family. Robert was very involved with youth soccer; working as president for two terms for the Ramona Soccer League where he also coached multiple teams at once. He enjoyed spending time tanning at the Country Club pool, playing volleyball at Ramona Oaks Park, and golfing at the San Vicente Club.

He is also survived by many in-laws, nieces, nephews and friends who love him immensely.
