Alice was a resident of Manteca since 1956. She was a faithful member at Calvary Community Church where she dedicated herself to volunteering and helping others. She was talented at needle point, embroidery, and designing stuffed bears. Alice was the perfect example of a devoted mother and grandmother. She was extremely nurturing to everyone she came in contact with. Her giving heart never went un-noticed as she always found a way to help others. Her kind and grateful attitude towards others was the essence of a true woman of God. She will be missed.
