Alice Hammond was affectionately called Teresa, a beloved sister, aunt, and cherished member of our community leaves behind a legacy of love, kindness, and a tireless dedication to her family.

Teresa found her calling in the art of housekeeping, a profession she embraced with unparalleled dedication and pride.
