Alice was a 1953 graduate of Tipp City High School and graduated from The Ohio State University with her Bachelor’s degree in nursing. She worked in numerous public health and community nursing jobs. She was also the school nurse at Broadway Elementary for a number of years and “patched up” many students of Tipp City! Her last career step took her to becoming the first Executive Director of Hospice of Miami County.
Alice had an amazing spirit and strength to meet all of her health challenges.
She played the organ for 25 years for First Baptist until MS prevented that but she continued on singing in the choir. A celebration of her life will be planned in the future for close family and friends.
Contributions may be made in loving memory to First Baptist Church, Tipp City or the Ohio Buckeye Chapter of National Multiple Sclerosis Society.
