Obituary of Alice Fitzgibbon

Webster: Survived 90 wonderful years.  Alice was born in Queens, NY.  Her mother passed when she was only 6 months old, she was moved back to Holland and raised by her grandmother. During WWII mom was forced to hide from the Germans because she was an American citizen. Her grandmother was trying to get her out of the country and had a train ride secured for her. According to mom, there was a man in a doorway when they were leaving the American consulate.  He said "don't you dare put that little girl on that train. Mom "Survived the life of Anne Frank".  Mom was a self -made woman. She sold Beeline clothing, she managed "The body Shoppe" which was one of the first to do aerobics in the 60, 70's & 80's.  She worked hard all her life on her house and beautiful gardens.  She loved to go sailing, puzzles, fishing and most of all camping at Kring's Point. She had many dear friends, and always threw the best parties.

     Predeceased by her son, Kenny. Survived by her only daughter, Wendy and adopted daughter, Patty Lancie. She was my best friend, role model, and she gave some of the best advice to all my friends. She was loved by everyone who came in contact with her, even towards the end, and would like to thank everyone for being part of her journey.  Services will be private, memorials may be directed to DeMay Living Center, 100 Sunset Dr. Newark, NY 14513.
