Alice worked at the United Illuminating Co. many years ago until she became a stay-at-home mom. She loved to bake like her mom and was always baking something to share with her family and friends. Her greatest joy was raising her children and eventually spending time with her grandchildren. She was a very outgoing person and loved by many. She lived a long fulfilling life.
The family would like to thank the staff at Branford Hills for the wonderful care Alice received over the years and a special thank you to Shannon during mom’s final days.
