          Alice Mary Engel, of Oil City, dedicated her life to taking care of others as a Certified Nursing Assistant, most recently with U.C.I.P.

          Alice died unexpectedly in her sleep of cardiac complications on Friday, October 8, 2021 at the age of 61.

          Alice was preceded in death by her mother, Lillian Engel; and a grandson, Taylor Forsythe.

          She spent her free time helping others, reading, knitting, and crocheting.  She had a very loving spirit, but could often be heard sharing her favorite quote, "Suck it up, Buttercup!"
