Alice Josephine White, age 88, passed away December 27, 2021, in Monroe, Washington. She was born September 17, 1933, in Bellingham, to Bernard and Mary (Gallagher) Reynolds.
Alice grew up and graduated in Bellingham, WA. She was eighth of nine children. A lot of her love, values and compassion for others stemmed from her family.
She fell in love and married at the ripe old age of eighteen. One of her brothers (Chuck) escorted her back East to meet our father, David, who was enlisted in the Navy at that time. A beautiful Catholic ceremony the day after Christmas was performed in 1951 in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
Alice was a wonderful mom. She raised us a lot like she herself was raised. Our home was blessed with all of the ingredients of a happy, healthy lifestyle. Mom was widowed at an early age. She never remarried, claiming Dave was the love of her life.
Her career as a grocery checker served her well. She had that social charisma and smile that was owned only by her.
She lived a full life with a lot of travel on her agenda. Lots of love went out to all of her friends and family. Our mother was a positive, happy, fun-loving lady who will be greatly missed.
Alice is survived by her daughters, Jodi and Gary Redfield, Peggy and Doug Whitlock and Becky and Al Morales; eight grandchildren; ten great grandchildren.
She was preceded in death by her parents; brothers, Maurice, Bernie, Charles, Frank, Jack and Joseph; sisters, Esther Booth and Mary Micklethwaite.
A Celebration of Life will be held in the Spring, an announcement will be posted. Alice was laid to rest beside her husband at Union Cemetery, Sedro-Woolley. The family of Alice wish to extend our sincere thank you to the Monroe Hospital. The staff gave her constant care, kindness and gentleness. They have our upmost respect and admiration.
