Mom had an alter ego, for 64 they were always known as Alice and Nick until he left us in 2018, they were inseparable except for Dad’s Saturday grocery journeys across Orange County in search of the cheapest prices. We will mourn her lose but rejoice that once again it’s Alice and Nick.
The family would like to thank Dr. Sharfenberger and staff for their compassionate care, the wonderful Denice Jones who cared for Mom when dad passed. Sue and John Ferrogari, Diana and John Lupinski who where always there at a moment’s notice, Joe Raniere who would stop by to chat. The family would have been lost without the care provided by two wonderful sisters Kathy Torro and Donna Dolan, you made her last year so much more enjoyable, she loved you both. Daughter-in-law Cheryl the daughter she never had, you will never know how much she loved you and finally her son Chris who cared for Mom and Dad day in and day out.
She was predeceased by her husband Nicholas Zis and brother James McSherry.
