Alice Ann McGuffog Grippi, a resident of Clyo, GA, departed this world on Thursday, May 5, 2022, at the age of 71. Alice passed peacefully at her home surrounded by her family.
Alice was born September 29, 1950, in Jersey City, New Jersey and was a resident of New Jersey for most of her life but had many pit stops before settling in Georgia. A graduate of New Milford High School class of 1969, Alice spent most of her adult life working as a professional press operator at various dry cleaners in the Bergen County, NJ and Detroit, Michigan area. In her earlier years, Alice taught Sunday School at Grace Lutheran Church and later in life taught basic computer skills to children and adults at Bergen County Academy. Along with traveling and touching many lives in many places, one of Alice’s greatest joys was serving Thanksgiving dinner to the homeless and needy with her sister in faith Emma Kemp at the shelter in Patterson, NJ.
Alice was preceded in death by her mother, Nellie (Helen) Kander McGuffog and father, William McGuffog. Alice leaves behind her sister, Nancy A. McGuffog Oliver (James); brothers, John J. McGuffog (Joan) and Jimmy W. McGuffog; daughter, Nicole A. Grippi; nieces, Tabitha S. Redmond and Rebecca N. McGuffog; nephews, Troy D. Redmond (Tonya), Keith E. Redmond (Lisa) and Kenneth W.
