Alice and I went to Horace Mann grade school together.  It was quite a shock to learn that she had passed in 2001.  I have many fond memories of going to birthday parties together, walking home from school almost everyday, and just enjoying ech others company.  I hope she is at peace and all is well with this terrific lady.

Dear Alice and family,

I, too, like Nancy, was shocked to hear about your passing. Last time we saw each other was at our 25th reunion. We shared some special times. Dated for a time, you as a terrific cheerleader, and me, trying to impress you on the FB field and BB court. We also shared a homeroom and actually sat next to one another for two years. Good times they were!! We also shared a birthday............APRIL 12TH, 1945!! How often I thought of that through the years. Just so you know, I will never forget. Thanks for the memories, Alice!!

My friendship with Alice began when we were three years old. Alice, Susie Gottlieb Stoken, and I were like the 3 Musketeers. Our parents were good friends and they encouraged our friendships. The three of us also attended day camp and Mac-Do Lodge Summer Camp for Girls together for many years. We did not attend elementary or junior high school together, but we spent time together on the weekends and at West Suburban Temple functions together.

During high school, Alice and I met on the corner of Harlem Avenue and LeMoyne and walked together to catch the bus to high school on Division Street. Even though we spent so much time together going to and from school, our parents never could understand why their teenage daughters spent so much time on the telephone. 

Alice went to the University of Wisconsin and graduated with a degree in Library Science, she always loved books. She had a fascinating life living in Africa with her husband, and two sons. When Alice and her family returned to the US they Rowayton, Connecticut, where Alice became an accomplished and beloved librarian.

I will always remember the grand surprise 16th birthday party Alice and her mother hosted for me when my mother was in the hospital. I have copious and lovely memories when I think about Alice. I have always remembered her authentic friendship, funny laugh, sense of humor, leadership skills, trustworthiness, and enjoyment of life! Alice was a blessing to her family and friends.
