Please accept the condolences of the members of the League of Women Voters of the Copper Country. We are so glad that Alyce was one of three early members who shared their memories at our annual meeting last April. The video of that is archived in our records at the MTU Copper Country Archives at Van Pelt Library. Alyce was a lovely person and a valuable member of our community.
