Alice C. King, age 90, of Malone, NY passed away peacefully January 20, 2023 at the Adirondack Medical Center in Saranac Lake, NY. She was predeceased by her parents, Ethel Gladding and Dwight Chellis, a brother, Grant, her husband, Paul L. King and their son, Neil.
She is survived by her daughters, Lee Anne (Cork) Shoppell, Lesley (Alan) Bourg, and Valerie (Chad) Martin; her grandchildren, Sara (Zach) Beiswanger, Nicholas (Jana) Martin and Alexandra Martin; step-grandchildren, Jacob (Tedi) Bourg and Caleb Bourg; great-grandchildren Oliver, Charlotte, Maxwell, Lilly, and Braelyn; and her step great-grandchild, Charlie Rose.
Alice was born March 22, 1932 in White River Junction, NH., to Ethel Gladding and Dwight Chellis. She grew up in VT., and following nursing school, she adventurously moved to Key West, FL, to work as a nurse at the Naval hospital and met Paul, who was stationed there in the Navy. Their travels eventually brought them to Malone, NY., and together they owned a successful family restaurant, the A&W which later became Kings Restaurant. Happy times spent with family and many friends filled her life. She loved gardening, playing cards, reading, listening to music and quiet times in the back yard listening to the birds while thumbing through her bird books.
A private service will be held when she is laid to rest with her husband and son at a later date.
Her family asks that if donating to a charity in remembrance is important to you, please consider supporting any research that goes toward eliminating dementia, which sadly takes too many loved ones every day.
An interment will be held at Evergreen Cemetery in Rutland, VT at the convenience of the family. Arrangements are under the care and direction of Frary Funeral Home.
