Obituary of Alice A. DeFelice
Alice Ann (Elgrim) DeFelice, 83, of Le Roy, NY passed away on August 1, 2019 at Strong Memorial Hospital in Rochester, NY surrounded by her family.
Alice was born in Trenton, NJ on October 6, 1935 to the late William and Helen (Hart) Elgrim. She grew up in the family home in nearby Yardville and attended Hamilton High School, graduating in 1955. She married Angelo DeFelice on November 21, 1959 and together they raised their family in LeRoy. Alice, fondly known as “Mrs. D,” was an active member of the community. Over the years she participated with cub scouts and girl scouts, the LeRoy Volunteer Ambulance, LeRoy-Stafford Senior Citizens, LeRoy Chapter of Beta Sigma Phi, and the Ladies Auxiliary of the Botts-Fiorito American Legion Post amongst many others. She enjoyed cooking, camping, crafts, and time with her family, but most of all, Alice enjoyed square-dancing each week with her husband with the Batavia Silver Stars and the former Promenading Bees clubs.
