Rochester, NY: Passed away on Thursday, October 12, 2023 at age 71. She was born in Williamsport, PA, but she called Texas home, even after reluctantly moving back north to be near family in 2022.
She is survived by her sometimes functional, often amusing and always loving family. Husband Herby, sons Jake (Nicole) and Jesse; grandchildren Samantha, Danny (Brittany), Grace, James & Corinne; great grandchildren Xavier, Danny, Zoey and Vivian, nieces and nephews and a small army of Niagara Falls-in-laws. She is predeceased by her father William Weasner, her mother Mary Weasner (Robinson) and her brother Patrick Weasner.
She was a determined, resilient woman that loved her Astros baseball, all kinds of music and a good, dry red wine. She loved, rescued and protected animals her whole life, especially the feline variety. To say she saved 500 cats in her 71 years would be a conservative estimate, each with a wonderfully bizarre name. The feral cat colony behind her Texas home surely ate better than she and Herby did many days.
She was steadfast and loyal, selfless to a fault and never backed down from a good fight. She made a heck of a lasagna and an even better potato salad. “Thanksgiving by Alice” was her son's and many of their friend's favorite meal of the year…the only thing burnt was the orange on the Longhorns jerseys when they played the Aggies on Turkey Day.
Alice often said “Well, you can either laugh or you can cry, it’s up to you.” As we remember Alice and celebrate her life, we will surely do both. Rest in peace. We love you.
There will be a private celebration of life for close family and friends.
