Greene, Alice Walker (96) died peacefully on October 25th at the Jones Harrison Residence. Born in 1922 in New York, she lived most of her life in New York (Bayside, Great Neck, and Huntington), and, in her last five years, near her son Harry in Minneapolis. Alice spent her career as a public school English teacher and later as a high school librarian, earning both M.Ed and MLS degrees. A lifelong love of reading and writing resulted in a diary that she began when she was ten years old. She introduced her sons to reading early on with her favorites; Alice in Wonderland and Winnie the Pooh. She traveled extensively with her husband Bob and they enjoyed going to museums and theater. She also loved celebrating Jewish holidays with her extended family. She was smart, thoughtful, energetic, and caring. Alice is survived by her sons, David Greenberg of Colrain, MA and Harry Greenberg of Minneapolis and her grandchildren, Jesse, Julie, and Max. She is predeceased by her much-beloved husband Bob, sister Marion, and grandson Jamie. Memorial gifts may be made to Twin Cities Men's Center, 3249 Hennepin Avenue South, Suite 55, Minneapolis, MN 55408.
