Alice was a graduate of Winsor School and Bryn Mawr College with a degree in biology. An avid sailor and tennis player, she was a generous supporter of many worthy causes. She had a wide collection of friends from all parts of her life and kept in touch with all of them. She was happiest in the cockpit of her sail boat, Gander Too, and spending time with her friends and family on the porch of her house on Plymouth Harbor. She could steer a course with amazing fidelity & calm, accounting for wind, tide, currents under a starry sky, in pea soup fog or sudden squall she quietly guided her craft to her planned destination.
