Alice J. Bowers, 96, of Orlando, passed away peacefully on Tuesday, September 26, 2017. At the time of her passing, Alice resided at The Bridge at Orlando Assisted Living Community where she called home since 2004. She was also under the loving care of Vitas Hospice as she completed her earthly journey.

Born in Atlanta, Georgia on June 15, 1921, Alice called Orlando home for the last 68 years. Her vocation was providing a loving home for her family and maintaining great relationships with her many neighborhood friends. Alice was a Roman Catholic and practiced her faith at St. James Catholic Church and Good Shepherd Catholic Church, both in Orlando. She was preceded in death by her only Sister, Marjorie (Billie) Swofford and her beloved husband of 55 years, Leo. Alice is survived by her Daughter and Son-in-Law Linda and Michael Duggan of Deerfield Beach, Florida, Son and Daughter-in-Law Todd and Kim Ackley Bowers of Orlando, Grandson Christopher Bowers, his Wife Carynn Jackson Bowers and Alice’s Great Grandson August “Gus” Bowers, and Alice’s Grandson Jonathan Bowers, his Wife Christina Bowers and Alice’s Great Granddaughter Penelope “Penny” Bowers. Alice’s closest friend during her later years was her caregiver Millie Ardines who provided Alice with loving care and companionship.

A Mass in celebration of Alice’s life will be held at Good Shepherd Catholic Church, Orlando Florida at 11:00 AM, Wednesday, October 4. Alice was a generous woman and during her life supported many causes. In lieu of flowers, friends are asked to make a donation to their favorite cause in Alice’s name. Alice’s family will be supporting hurricane relief efforts in the United States and Puerto Rico.
