Alice Howe Smith, 66

Alice Howe Smith died on Aug. 22, 2009, after a hard battle with diabetes and heart issues.  She was 66 years old. She was at home with her family around her.

Alice was the daughter of Edith Call Howe and Charles Howe, both deceased, of Wells, Vt.  Alice attended Wells Elementary School and graduated from Granville High School.  Married for a brief time, she gave birth to two boys, moved away, but came back and went to work at Scottie’s Coffee Shop as a cashier in Granville.   

Alice met her second husband, George Smith, at Scottie’s.  Mr. Smith was employed as a florist at Crandell’s Floral Shop in Middle Granville, NY.  After they married, they opened their own floral business in Cambridge.

George adopted Alice’s two sons and later they added two daughters to their family.  They moved to New Mexico where they managed another floral business.  Many years later, the Smith family returned home to Vermont when George retired and Alice went to work at Mack Molding in Arlington, Vt. They settled in Cambridge yet again.

George died in 1996 and Alice remained in Cambridge until retirement.  She eventually moved back to New Mexico due to health concerns and to be with her children. 

She is survived by her four children; Marc Smith of Colorado, Matthew Smith and wife Donna of Colorado, Meredith Autry and husband Martin of New Mexico, and Marcy Hathaway and husband James of New Mexico; seven grandchildren; and three great grandchildren.

Alice has four sisters, Virginia Fenton and husband Donald of Vermont, Thelma Estey of Washington, Edna Howe and significant other Bruce Earle of Vermont, and Kaye Therrien and husband Peter of  Florida; a sister-in-law, Betty Howe; and many nieces and nephews with families. 

She was preceded in death by her brother, Walter Howe of New York.

Burial will be in Wells at a later date.  No public services are scheduled.  A private family gathering is planned. 

So loved, so missed.
