It would be wrong to say that she lost her battle to cancer because she never stopped trying to find natural remedies and fought to live everyday.
Even while in Agrace she asked me “Do you think I could get better and live?” No matter how sick she was she was always determined. When anyone else would’ve been broken she was strong.
Through her, we know what resilience and perseverance truly looks like. There was no quit in Alisia. Just because she is no longer here, it doesn’t mean she lost her fight, because now she fights for us in Heaven watching out for those she loves. Alisia (Alice) was very active in her faith in the Catholic Church and had a compassionate spirit whose passion was caring for others. She cared deeply for her family and neighbors. She did this not out of obligation, but because of who she was. She was always the first to offer help and seem to always put herself last. Alice was very smart and well educated, an amazing artist, business owner, writer, she loved to sing, and could learn and do anything she set her mind to. She enjoyed her Downton Abbey and DIY shows which I found familiar because I enjoyed those same shows, especially the DIY shows, the exception was she could professionally design and remodel a home completely that’s how talented Alisia was. Any given task she learned it quickly and did as an experienced professional as if she’d been doing it her whole life.
We love you mom! May God Bless You and may you truly have the happiness you always searched for and the peace that God gives you.
The family wishes to thank all of those who cared for her during her last days. For those who have known Alisia (Alice) in her fruitful journey with us, her graveside service will be held at the adjoining cemetery after the service.
