    Alice was a caring, giving teacher to so many students at West Ridge Elementary School, including our son, Chad, who felt very cared about and asked to be in her class for the second time when she moved up a grade. We got to know Alice, and had a personal relationship for years, including the honor of attending her retirement party. She instilled the love of learning in countless children, a true blessing. Be at peace, Alice.
