Alice E. Schwetz

Alice was proud of the over 400 kids she babysat throughout her years. She always had a four-legged friend, and lots of frogs and bird houses around to decorate her house.

Alice enjoyed reading books and watching Bob Barker on the Price Is Right. If you ever stopped by, she could talk you into a card game, but you better not plan on winning. If you wanted to go for a ride, she would go to the casino or any thrift sales to find a special treasure for her grandkids.

Alice was a kind and giving mother, grandmother and great-grandmother who will be missed by all.
