    Alyce, a friend, wife, mom and so much more to her family, friends and to me. First meeting when we were seventeen; just out of High School at the “Melrose.” It began a whole new life for us, which had lasted over sixty years with the best memories we could of shared together. So many of the
    “Events” – joys that the four of us shared over a lifetime.
    She truly cherished her family and was very proud of you all.
    Bless you. Love, Lois
