Alice was a very dear cousin. I only met her a time or two that I can remember, but still she will be dearly missed!! She was kind, caring and loving. We so enjoyed the barn dance on the late 1990s when I visited with my parents. She was a darling neice to my dear daddy Art Stellmach. Love and prayers to you and your family. ??

Bonnie and Family – Please accept my sincere sympathy as your mourn your mother’s passing. What a wonderful legacy she leaves behind with such a large and loving family. With the passage of time, the days ahead should filled exceptionally warm and fond memories of a life well lived. Kevin

PS – I agree with the comment in the obituary above – she was the best cinnamon roll baker! I had more than my fair share of them at National Fuel.
