Alice Christopher Obituary, Death – Alice M. Martin–Christopher, a resident of Honesdale, Pennsylvania, passed away on Tuesday evening at the Allied Services Hospice Center. She was 74 years old. Since they first married five years ago, Edward Christopher has been her husband. 2012 saw the passing of Frank Martin, who had been her first husband. He had been ill for some time.
She was born in Honesdale on May 29, 1948, but both of her parents had passed away before she was born. Her father was Kosteck Sledzinski, and her mother was Josephine Martinkovitch Sledzinski. She received her diploma from Lake Consolidated School in 1966 and then continued her education at Wayne Commercial School in Honesdale after she graduated with the rest of her class.
Alice held the position of branch manager at the Honesdale National Bank’s Hamlin location for many years before she retired from that position. For the better part of forty years, she was a partner in the company that was called Phillips and Martin Concessions. Throughout her entire life, she was a dedicated member of the Ledgedale Volunteer Fire Company Ladies Auxiliary and served the organization in various capacities.
Both the Greene Dreher Fair Association and the Southern–Wayne Chamber of Commerce had previously benefited from her leadership on their respective boards of directors. She was a resident of both St. Thomas More Parish and St. Mary’s Parish, and she was an active member of both communities. Gardening, making candles, spending time with her many friends and relatives, and traveling were all activities that Alice enjoyed doing in her spare time in addition to the things listed above.
Brother Victor Sledzinski and his wife Marsha of Ledgedale and brother Stephen Sledzinski and his wife Susan of South Canaan are also among those who have been left behind, in addition to a brother-in-law named Dale Phillips of Ledgedale and a large number of nieces and nephews who have been orphaned as a result of this tragedy.
Both of her sisters, Barbara Phillips and Elizabeth Reed, had preceded her in death: the latter was her half-sister. She did not make it through either of them alive. The cremation ceremony that was held privately took place at the Lake Region Crematory in Lake Ariel. On Saturday, December 10, at 11 a.m., a Christian funeral service that is also known as a Mass of Christian Burial will be held in the St. Thomas More Church in Lake Ariel, which can be found at 105 Gravity Road. Between the hours of 10 and 10:55 in the morning, guests are encouraged to stop by the church whenever it is convenient for them.
