Married to Frank in April of 1958, Alice and Frank would move to Wyckoff and have three daughters, Allyson, Angela and Tricia to whom they devoted their lives.

She was a former parishioner of St. Elizabeth’s R.C. Church in Wyckoff and a current parishioner of St. Gabriel’s R. C. Church in Saddle River. Alice leaves behind her loving husband Frank and her three devoted daughters, Allyson, Angela and Tricia.
