Alice S. Rice died Wednesday, August 1, 2012 at the Mennonite Home in Lancaster at the age of 96. She was the first-born daughter of the late Edgar A. Stambaugh and Ruth Alice Morrow Stambaugh and the beloved wife of the late Samuel M. Rice. Alice was born in Green Park, Perry County, but lived most of her adult life in New Bloomfield, PA.
Alice graduated with a BS in Education from Shippensburg State Teachers College. She taught first through eighth grades in several one-room schools until the birth of her first son. At that time Alice became a fulltime homemaker who enjoyed working with the Jr. Sunday School at her church—Christ Lutheran, helping with the Boy Scouts, and being involved in community activities. Much of her time was also spent assisting her husband with the family business—Rice Memorial Works. On occasion, when her boys were in school, she also worked as a substitute teacher.
Alice graciously hosted many large family gatherings, at which fresh or canned vegetables from her vast garden pleased the palate. In addition, she was recognized as an excellent pie baker. A trusted adviser, people often sought her out for personal advice.
 
Without a doubt, the most important thing in Alice’s life was her family. She was especially proud of her two sons, both of whom became well-respected physicians. In later years, one of Alice’s favorite pastimes was entertaining the staff at the Mennonite Home with her good humor and quick wit.
 
Alice is survived by her sons—Samuel A. Rice, MD and his wife, Linda (Duncan) of Lancaster and Matthew M. Rice, MD and his wife Kirin, DO of Gig Harbor, WA; two grandchildren—Nathaniel A. Rice and his wife Jessica of Summit, WI and Elizabeth R. Gates of Lancaster; and two great-grandchildren—Jackson A. Gates and Andrew D. Gates.
