She graduated near the top of her class at Nazareth High School in 1947, and worked in San Diego, CA and Easton, PA before marriage. When her children were school age, she launched what would become a nearly 50-year career at Kent Village Apartments in Paterson, NJ, rising from a secretarial position to become the resident manager of a 240-unit apartment complex. She retired in 2017 at the age of 87 and took residence in Vinson Hall Retirement Community, McLean, VA.

    What a wonderful picture of Alice.
    This is how we will always remember Her.
    Whenever we saw her she was always upbeat, pleasant, happy to talk, was informed & on topic.
    A sweet lady & nice to share Her company.
    It was obvious to us she loved her family dearly & spoke of them proudly.

    We always looked forward to seeing Her. It also made us extremely happy she attended our wedding.
    Seeing Her at Family Gatherings & events was a plus.
    We always sought her out & looked forward to sharing conversations.

    Alice lived Her life with poise & grace.
    We will miss her.

    Ann Lipari & Jim Buono
