Alice attended Smith College before moving on to graduate from Colby College, and later receiving her Master’s Degree in Education. Alice spent over 20 years teaching mathematics at the Vogel Middle School in Torrington CT, which she dearly loved. She was a member of the Brooks-Green Woods Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution in Torrington, and enjoyed sewing, knitting, cooking and traveling. Alice loved to play bridge and mahjong with her friends who were a very important part of her life.

Alice was such a very special lady who cherished spending time with her family. Her memory will be carried on forever in the hearts of her children, Nancy LaRosa and her husband Joseph of Portland, CT, and D. Gibson Smith and Elise Simeone of Acton, MA; her sister, Frances P. Jewell of Bradenton, FL; and granddaughter Jennifer Davis of Portland, CT. She was predeceased by her former husband, Donald G. Smith of New Hartford, CT.

Private graveside services and burial will be held on Friday August 2nd at Oak Lawn Cemetery in Fairfield. The family would like to express their heartfelt thanks to the staff of Vitas Hospice Care of Glastonbury, and her long term caregiver Margaret for taking such wonderful care of their mother. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, Connecticut Chapter, 659 Tower Avenue, First Floor, Hartford, CT 06112 ( ).

Alice was one of the first of many wonderful teachers I worked with at Vogel School. She was not only teaching students, but assisted new teachers navigate their new profession. She was an important part of that core of early faculty members that made any successes I had later in my career possible. A great Lady, kind, patient, and a pleasure to know. Her smile and grace made even the most problematic day at school better. Condolences to the Family, of whom she was very proud. …. Mark V,Purcell
