On October 26, 1963, Alice Perez married Pedro Gonzalez Jr. at the original site of Our Lady of Guadalupe Catholic Church on Carpenter Road in Flint, MI. Finding solace and strength in her faith, Alice was a devout member of Our Lady of Guadalupe Catholic Church and later attended St. John the Evangelist Catholic Church. Alice’s vibrant spirit was evident in her diverse interests and talents. She was a member of The Foresters and enjoyed pursuits such as sewing, quilting, ceramics, cake decorating, painting, and martial arts, holding a black belt in Sanchin-Ryu Karate. Her love for movement extended to line dancing, Tai-Chi and the joy of walking. Family was at the heart of Alice’s life. She cherished every moment spent with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren, finding joy in their laughter and milestones. Alice was deeply committed to her role as a mother and grandmother, finding fulfillment in nurturing and guiding her loved ones. She found pleasure in the simple joys of life, whether it was bowling with friends, exploring culinary delights in the kitchen, or getting lost in the pages of a good book. Alice treasured every opportunity to create lasting memories surrounding holidays, birthday parties, family vacations and especially sharing shopping adventures with her daughters. She will be remembered for her unwavering love, boundless energy, creativity, and dedication to her family. Her presence will be deeply missed by all who had the privilege of knowing her.
