Alice L. Gerzetich, 91, a resident of Painesdale, passed away Friday, May 20, 2022, at the Omega House in Houghton with her family by her side.

She was born on December 16, 1930, in Trimountain, MI, a daughter of the late Arne and Aune (Taipoli) Hovey. Alice was raised in Painesdale and attended the Jeffers’ School.

Following school, Alice worked in Manitowoc, WI, as a nanny and in Chicago, IL, at Western Electric.

On December 3, 1949, Alice was united in marriage to her perfect match William “Bill” Gerzetich. The couple resided in Chicago before moving to make their home in Painesdale. On September 8, 2004, Bill preceded her in death.

In the 1970’s, Mrs. Gerzetich had accepted a job as a cook for the Jeffers’ school which she continued into her 70’s. She enjoyed visiting with the students each day and was able to leave a lasting impression. In 2002, she was honored to have the High School yearbook dedicated to her.
