Alice enjoyed the simple things in life! She loved to camp, especially at Scrappy’s, and go swimming in the creek. She loved spending a lazy day taking a float down the river and having a campfire along the bank. Alice was quite fond of a good party and was always the last one to go! It wasn’t unusual to see her with blinking jewelry to match the current holiday. In her later years, Alice was known to sit and reminisce about the good ole days and all the adventurous and whacky things she used to do. She will be missed.
The family would like to invite friends to join them for a Celebration of Life event at the Shaeffer homestead April 24, 2021 at 2:00 PM.
In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the Chester County Food Bank, 650 Pennsylvania Drive, Exton, PA 19341.
