Preceded in death by her beloved husband of 72 years, and her best friend, George Moskalik; her parents, Frank and Ina Plater; brothers, Franklin, Roy, John and Clyde Plater and her sister, Elizabeth Burke.
Alice and her beloved husband were inseparable soul mates. The love that they shared is what Broadway love stories are about. They were indeed perfect examples of what married life should be. It was easy to see they deeply loved each other. Now they are reunited in Heaven and in everlasting peace.
Alice was an amazing seamstress who could create magic with her needle and thread. A gracious, elegant, gentle powerhouse who barely reached 5 foot tall. She will be remembered for her generosity to all and thinking of others before herself. As Alice went through her many chapters in life, she taught us to age gracefully. Alice dedicated herself to the care of those she loved. She undertook her care for others with gratitude and felt it was her honor.
