Alice passed away peacefully last night — Wednesday, April 6th, 2016.
She was 103 years old.
She spent the last day of her life in good spirits, listening to music and enjoying having her fan mail read to her by Gail.
As she often did, Alice commented again how amazed and thankful she was that people remembered her and took the time to write, “I really feel that these people care about me.”
Her fans the world over truly gave joy and meaning to the last years of her life. She was always humbled and honored that she could be an inspiration to others.
When Gail left for the day, Alice gave her a send-off wink.
Gail and I would like to say thank you to all of you for giving her so much love and recognition. Our lives were changed forever by being a part of Alice’s story.
We’re in the process of collecting and cataloging all the cards and art that were sent to Alice. In future we’d also like to establish some manner of permanent memorial for her.
