To the Mattern Family, Aunt Alice was always a huge part of my life. Growing up she would bring you kids to our house (mom and dad's) to play and visit. We went a lot of places together throughout the years. Some of which include family holiday gatherings, Grandpa Walter's to visit and have supper with him, Grandma "Marie's" and Grandpa Wendell's to visit, Grandma "Marie's" shop picnics to Conneaut Lake Park etc. You came to visit us at the different camp sites we went to until we parked the camper behind the shop. Then it was up there to visit for the day and see both sets of Grandparents. Aunt Alice came to Heidi's Bible School and Church programs, her Graduation party, our we...dding reception and anything she was asked to attend in the family. She tried to get out to see Rick, Denise and Heidi and families when they came home to visit. My little grandson, Damion, said that if anything happened to Aunt Alice he wanted to come back and see her. She went to all the niece's and nephew's doings. She wanted to know their children as well. Family was indeed important to her. Aunt Alice usually asked me to go with her to out of town doctor appointments so that I could navigate. She got me going to Bingo and the Casino's with her, but she was lucky and I was not, so I didn't continue. Most recently, I will miss her Saturday night stops after Bingo, and her late night calls to check in and let each other know what was going on in our world. It is comforting to know that she was always around us; you could count on her being there! I will truly miss her! With Love and Remembrance of My Dear Aunt Alice, Debbie and Tom SchultzRead more
