Alice married Philip J. Sheehan, Sr. on October 5, 1957, who predeceased her. Alice and Phil were founding members of St. Martin de Porres parish in Red Oaks Mill.

Alice was a proud, lifelong resident of Poughkeepsie until 6 years ago when she moved to Cloverwood Senior Living, Pittsford, NY to be closer to immediate family. Alice was a loyal friend, an avid traveler and bridge player as well as fan of the Hudson Valley and all sports, particularly the Marist Red Foxes Women’s Basketball team.
Alice and Phil had 5 sons – they were predeceased by Philip Jr. and Dennis; Alice is survived by Paul Sheehan, Henrietta, NY, Neil A. Sheehan, Kailua, HI and Timothy P. (Jeannine) Sheehan, Pittsford, NY. She is survived by sisters JoAnne (Al) Grzegorek, Stowe, OH and Mary Margaret McElduff, Pittsford, NY and sisters in law Luella McGrath of Cincinnati, OH and Joan McGrath of Poughkeepsie, NY and predeceased by sister Eleanor McGrath and brothers Robert and George McGrath. Alice was a loving grandmother to grandchildren Phoebe, Philip, Nicholas, Teddy, Aidan, Maura, Ailise and Declan Sheehan as well as a caring aunt to 29 nieces and nephews.

I remember Mrs. Sheehan from Alfred Drive. The family lived two doors down from us growing up.
Mrs. Sheehan was a sweet lady. The ladies on the block were close neighbors. Nice memories.
