My cousin Alice was a great lady. She always organized the Reiderman reunions in Willard (with help of course) and was a fine cook. She had a towering spirit and stamina, as well as a wry sense of humor. I'll always think back fondly of her at the reunions and my chats with her.

Every summer in recent years (except covid ones) I visited Aunt Alice with mom and relatives. She always had stories to tell and loved help. She loved her house and things and visitors. She will be missed.

Brad and Linda, I'm sorry to learn of Alice's passing. I've enjoyed reading other folks' memories of her (I only met her once). My thoughts, prayers, juju and positive vibes are with your entire family. Much love to all. šŸ’›

Alice was not only my sister but was also my Godmother. I can remember growing up when I was a young boy and my Mom and Dad couldn't afford much for Christmas. I couldn't wait to open Alice's presents because she always gave me something I wanted. After moving to Florida whenever we came to Ohio we would always try to stop for a visit. People who knew her best knew she liked to embellish her stories. When John McCain ran, she would tell me he would call her to discuss campaign strategy. What I don't understand is that with her advice how he lost. All kidding aside Alice was a very giving person and contributed a lot to the causes she thought just and fair. I am so glad we were able to see her before she passed and could still recognize us. We hadn't been able to visit because of Covid-19. I remember my sister Patty saying she couldn't get Alice to smile because Alice said she didn't have anything to smile about. I was so glad we actually had her laughing about Joshie and the little animals he took from her house. The only reason we aren't at the funeral is because we just saw her a couple of weeks ago and my Grandson Sebastian is graduating from high school the same day. I choose to remember Alice when she was in her house and was happy. I pray to God that she is laughing in Heaven with Harvey, Ercille, Cleone, Mom, Dad, Wendy, Johnny, and Bob. It brings me great comfort to know that Little Kenny finally has an Aunt that will spoil him. May God grant them all eternal rest. Love you Sis, your little brother Ken

Alice Valentine, my sister-in-law, welcomed me into the family with open loving arms and treated me like I had always been there. Alice needed to be needed. She loved and cared for people who needed her and gave generously to many charities. Alice cherished her Catholic faith and said the Rosary every day. Alice and I had a lot in common. She loved pretty things, her trinkets, dishes, and memorabilia which Ken, her brother, refers to as "clutter". Haha. Each one had a history and a story. She could tell you where they all came from and where she got them. The Avon bottles in her uniquely orange bathroom brought back special memories to me as my Grandmother also had a lot of the same ones. Alice meticulously placed things where she wanted them to be. Her clown dolls and pillows on the bed in the guest room all had special places. I would try to remember how she placed them when I made the bed. Well, one day I decided to arrange them differently than she had them. She came in and said "oh they look nice like that". It made me feel good that she liked my arrangement, but I'm sure she changed them back after we left.šŸ˜€ Ken and I did spend time with her for a week in May. Had 4 visits at the Willows. We talked, took her a Frosty, showed her pictures of the kids and grandkids which she enjoyed. She had a special fondness for Joshua our grandson, who loved her little animals so much that he actually took a couple home with him when he visited her. I told her he still had them and she laughed. I loved Alice very much and I will miss her.

I am sorry for your loss. Aunt Alice was always a smiling face and a leading force at the Reiderman Family reunions. My wife Carolyn commented about how sweet Alice was to her and how she made her feel so welcome. Thank you Aunt Alice, and may you rest in peace in heaven.
