  1. You will be missed Sister Alice. You were a joy to be around at St. Theresa and at bingo. Please say hello to Sister Katheryn and my Aunt Mary for me. May you RIP and be with the Angels.

  2. God be with you Sister Alice. Rest in peace and may the Angels surround you. Loved the “old” days at St. Theresa. God Bless.

  3. Fond memories of spending time with Sister Alice either at Our Lady of Lourdes in Chicago, Lincoln NE, Missoula MT., Palm Springs with tour of Bob Hope’s house and lastly Mount Carmel . Will miss her smile and quick wit. Rest in Peace.
