Alice loved spending time with family and looking at her many volumes of family photos. She enjoyed reading the scriptures and serving at her church. She was a member of Holy Temple Church of the Lord Jesus Christ in Washington, DC, where she attended faithfully until her health declined.

To cherish her memory, she leaves a special friend and companion, Thomas Moore; a devoted niece, Deborah Reynolds; and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
