Keyser, Alice J. (Wilcox) passed peacefully in Canandaigua, N.Y. on Good Friday (March 30) at age 96. She journeyed through the indignities of old age as she did through life: with quiet courage, grace, sharp wit and a very generous heart.
Family and friends may call from 4 to 7 p.m. Thurs. (April 5) at the Johnson-Kennedy Funeral Home, Inc., 47 N. Main St. Canandaigua. A Mass of Christian burial will be celebrated at 10 a.m. Fri. (April 6) at St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Canandaigua, with Father William Coffas as the Celebrant. Burial will be in Riverside Cemetery in Old Forge at the convenience of the family.
She was a devout Catholic and active in St Francis church, as well as its Altar Rosary Society. She was passionate about life-especially her retirement years in the Adirondacks-enthusiastic, outgoing and caring of others. Her warmth and wit drew people to her wherever she went.
She is survived by her oldest son, Jim of Canandaigua; and her two remaining sisters; one brother; and many nieces and nephews-mostly in Buffalo.
She was predeceased by seven of her ten siblings; her dear son, Daniel; and beloved husband, James-founder and owner of Keyser Cadillac in Buffalo.
