Alice grew up in Northeast Philadelphia, and later moved to Hollywood, PA nearby to Abington, PA where she lived for over 30 years.

Mom was quite active in her golden years, as she belonged to three Seniors’ groups, with regularly scheduled meetings. She belonged to Abington Retired Citizens (ARCATS), Queen of Peace seniors group and St. John of the Cross seniors.

She volunteered to help run the frequent special day trips, collecting money and running fund raisers such as the delicious pot pie sales.

Alice was proud to be a member of the Women’s Auxiliary of the Abington VFW Post 3612, helping with luncheons at the Post.

She is survived by her daughter and son-in-law Arlene (Rims) Lloyd and John Lloyd of Connecticut. She took special delight in following her grandchildren, Beverly Spaulding and John Michael Lloyd. She also considered herself blessed to have twin great-grandchildren, Haley and Patrick Spaulding.
