Alice was a member of St. John the Evangelist Catholic Church. She was a member of the Delphos Eagles Auxiliary, a life member of the VFW Post 3035 Auxiliary, the Knights of Columbus Auxiliary, and the Right to Life Society. She was also a St. John Athletic Booster for many years. She formerly worked at New Delphos MFG as a secretary and was a volunteer at the Thrift Shop.
Alice loved to play cards and bingo, bowl, and go to casinos. She was an avid fan of the Blue Jays, Buckeyes and Reds. However, her family was most important, and her favorite past time was watching her kids’ and grandkids’ sporting events. Alice loved people and when she walked into a room, she lit it up.
A Funeral Mass will be held at St. John the Evangelist Catholic Church on Monday, March 14, 2022, at 11:00. a.m. Fr. Albert Beltz will preside. Burial will follow in St. John Cemetery. Visitation will be from 2:00-8:00 on Sunday, March 13, 2022, at Harter & Schier Funeral Home. There will be a Ladies Auxiliary Service at 7:15 and a Parish Wake at 7:30.
