Alice N. Tracy, a longtime Littleton resident passed away peacefully at the age of 88 on Saturday December 9, 2017 surrounded by her family. She was the loving and devoted wife of the late CWO Elmer E. Tracy who passed away in December 2007.
Alice was born in Western Massachusetts on October 7, 1929, a daughter of the late Paul C. Dunham, Sr. and Marion (Strong) Dunham. She was raised in Vermont and was a graduate of Spaulding High School in Barre, VT, class of 1947. It was here where she met her future husband Elmer and began her 60-year love story. The couple were married the very next year in 1948.
Alice worked as an executive assistant to the Regional Director of the Defense Contract Audit Agency for 20 years and as assistant to the Director of Christian Education at Grace Chapel in Lexington for nearly 20 years.
Her hobbies and interests included travel, the Boston Celtics, listening to country music, especially Vince Gill, and she was an avid reader. She also never met an ice cream cone she didn't like. Above all, faith was paramount in Alice's life. She was a longtime member of Grace Chapel in Lexington, where she not only worked, but also volunteered her time and was a member of many groups and committees. She will be dearly missed.
Alice is survived by her children; Peter and his wife Terry of Littleton, Michael and his wife Deborah of Fort Myers, Florida, and Daniel Tyler of Seattle, WA, as well as her four grandchildren and eleven great-grandchildren. She is also survived by her brother Paul C Dunham, Jr. and sister Faye (Dunham) Tucker.
In addition to her husband, Alice is sadly predeceased by her son, Joe, and her siblings Jack and Susie.
At Alice's request, there will be no calling hours. A public celebration of her life will be held at 11:00am on January 6, 2018 at Grace Chapel, 59 Worthen Road, Lexington.
