Alice was a devoted and loving wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, who enjoyed reading, knitting, crocheting, playing cards and games.  Most of all, she enjoyed being a “social butterfly” who genuinely loved people.  She also loved being able to see her family grow and serving as a great role model for her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.  She had an extensive network of friends, including relatives, who were all very important to her.

Alice was a member of St. Simon Catholic Church where she was active in the Adoration Chapel.  

On October 25, 1958, at St. Joseph Catholic Church, in Manistee, Alice married Robert “Bob” Cloutier, who survives her.  She is also survived by her children, Carol (Ken) Wagner of Cedar Springs, Cinda (Michael) Sobanksi of Ludington, Christy (Jay) Hemker of Ludington, and Robert (Kathleen) Cloutier Jr. of Grand Haven; 11 grandchildren; seven great-grandchildren and her “sister”, MaryAnn Yeager.

Alice was preceded in death by her parents; her brothers, Michael, James, and David; and her infant brother, Nickolas.
