    I had the privilege of spending a lot of time with Alice the last few months. She had a great sense of humor a quick wit and a infectious spirit. She told me all about her years in Ballet, her time in the canyon. I heard endless stories about her children and grand children. She loves you all very much. I will misss her and remember her a dear friend.

    I am saddened to learn of Alice’s death. She was a really great friend of the family, especially my late mother, Jackie Pfaus, who had been her teacher at Montclair High School. I have fond memories of Alice from when I was a kid and in high school when she came to visit. She was an amazing spirit and more resilient than steel. I am sure she will be missed by her family and friends. May her memory be as a blessing!
