Alice T. Gray
(July 29, 1925 - February 12, 2008)

MUNISING-- Alice T. Gray, a thirty-five year resident of Munising, died on Tuesday, February 12, 2008, at the Tendercare Health Center in Munising.

Mrs. Gray, formerly a nurse at Tendercare, was a member of Sacred Heart Parish and a longtime member of the Women’s Hospital Auxiliary. She once managed the former gift shop at Munising Hospital.

A native of Biddeford, Maine, Mrs. Gray attended school in Biddeford and in Brooklyn, New York. She graduated from nursing school in Biddeford, and worked as a registered nurse in Biddeford; Bangor, Maine; St. Louis, Missouri; Ann Arbor, Michigan; and Munising. She met her husband, the late Parker W. Gray, in Bangor, and their marriage lasted fifty years, until Mr. Gray’s death in 2000. .

With her husband, Mrs. Gray lived in many places in the United States and Canada before settling in Munising. During her life, she was active in parent-teacher organizations in public schools in several locations.

A devoted wife and mother, she was the proud mother of three sons: Parker, Jr, of Munising; James (Jane) of Madison, Wisconsin; and John, of Sun Prairie, Wisconsin. She has three grandchildren, Melissa, Emily, and Kevin Gray. She is survived also by a sister, Barbara, of Biddeford.

She is lovingly remembered also by numerous friends and family members in many states, many of whom trace their origins to Mrs. Gray’s longtime family home in Maine.

Mrs. Gray was an affectionate, gracious, and caring woman, known for her love of animals and gardening. She excelled at bridge. During her youth in Maine, she acquired a love of ocean beaches, and she was a superb swimmer. During her many years in Munising, she loved spending summer evenings with her husband and family picnicking at Sand Point, and she could be counted on to know the best spots for blueberries. She will be sorely missed.

Visitation will be held at the Bowerman Funeral Home in Munising on Friday evening from 5:00 until 8:00 p.m. with a Parish Vigil Service at 7:00 p.m. During the Vigil Service, there will be a time for the sharing of memories and stories. Father Chris Gardiner will celebrate a Mass of Christian Burial on Saturday, February 16, 2008 at 10:00 a.m. at Sacred Heart Church in Munising. Interment will be at the Hillside Cemetery in Damariscotta, Maine. Mrs. Gray’s obituary and online guestbook may be viewed and signed at www.bowermanfuneralhome.net
