She was an Aunt and Cousin to many and a friend to everyone she met. An avid Chicago Cubs fan lucky enough to see them win a World Series in her lifetime. She also loved to watch golf on TV to catch a glimpse of her Grandson Brian whom she was so proud of, in fact she was proud of all her grandchildren and great grandchildren. Alice was the BEST Mom, Aunt, Busia and Great Grandma who was loved by her family and many friends and would do anything for them and always with a smile on her face.
