Alice Walaski Maza, 93, Dickson City, died on Wednesday shortly after arrival at Geisinger Community Medial Center, Scranton, after being stricken ill at home. She was preceded in death by her husband, Leonard Maza, who died July 2, 2001.

Born in Mayfield, the daughter of the late Frank and Eleanor Kulesa Walaski, she was an active member of St. Mary's Visitation Church, Dickson City, and a member of its Christian Mother's Society. She was educated in Mayfield schools, and she graduated from St. Thomas Aquinas Commercial School, Archbald. She was the former owner of the Shiner's Café, Mayfield, and she was also employed in the local garment industry. Alice was a member of the Ladies Auxiliary to American Legion Post 665, Dickson City, and she was a member of Ladies' Garment Workers Union.

She enjoyed bingo and was an excellent Polish cook, especially her pierogies. She never missed Duke basketball, Penn State football or Pittsburgh Pirates games. Her grandchildren were the light of her life. Also, her two granddogs, Teddy and Toby, were a daily joy in her life. You were always the life of the party, Baba!

Surviving are a son, John Maza and wife, Marybeth, Dickson City; grandchildren, Alex, Christopher, Julian and Vicki Maza.
