When friends and family would stop to visit their home on Wayne Road, they would often find Alice and Bob’s kitchen table covered with art supplies as they enjoyed creating unique craft items for their family. Or they would find a challenging puzzle in process and be invited to join in. Bob and Alice were collectors of various glass pieces they would find at flea markets including salt dips and cruets
Alice and Bob enjoyed traveling with family and friends, including several cruises, the Grand Canyon and a Hot Air Balloon ride on their 40th anniversary.
Alice the Great (as her great grandchildren called her) and her yellow cat, Tyson, spent many hours walking the courts at Otterbein Senior Life where she resided since 2008.
