She worked at Camp Langdon, Portsmouth, Newark Die Company, Newark, N.J., and Calvary Presbyterian Church, Florham Park, N.J. She married Mike in 1943. They settled in Florham Park, N.J. where they raised their family until retiring to Freedom in 1980 where they had long been summer residents.

All who knew Alice benefited from her friendliness. She was a prolific baker. She had deep love and pride in her family and was devoted to her cat. In later years, crossword and Sudoku puzzles became a passion.
