It is with heavy hearts that we share the peaceful passing of Alice Weisenberger, beloved wife, mother, grandmother, sister, and friend, on August 23, 2023, at the age of 88. Alice was preceded in death by her loving husband of sixty-two years, Dr. Brock Weisenberger.
Alice was a thirty-year resident of Port Royal Plantation, where she and her husband made many dear friends. While Brock enjoyed weekly rounds of golf with the men, Alice delighted in the company of their wives over bridge games and conversation. Frequent dinner parties and travel were part of this group's routine for decades. She was blessed by the friendship and support of her neighbors on Planters Row, especially in the years following the passing of her husband in 2019. She was a thirty-year member of St Francis by the Sea.
Alice possessed a keen and curious mind, an even disposition, and a delightful sense of humor. She was a voracious reader, devouring every section of the Wall Street Journal six days a week without fail. She was a tireless volunteer, supporting the American Red Cross, a Girl Scout troop leader, and a teacher's assistant for preschool children.
Alice was born on May 10, 1935, in Ironton, Ohio, to Howard Fletcher and Helen (Hart) Fletcher. She graduated from St. Joseph High School and attended The Ohio State University before marrying her high school sweetheart, Brock, on October 6, 1956. The couple welcomed three children, Carla, Dennis, and Eric, and lived in Rosebud, South Dakota; Lawrenceburg, Indiana; Columbus, Indiana; and Lake Bluff, Illinois, before retiring to Hilton Head, South Carolina, in 1993.
Alice is preceded in death by her husband Brock, son Eric, granddaughter Lauren Weisenberger, and her parents. She is survived by her daughter Carla Miller of Chicago, Illinois; Dennis Weisenberger and his wife Nancy of Phoenix, Arizona, and Barb Weisenberger of Lake St. Louis, Missouri; six grandchildren, Ellen and Lucy Miller, Kaystin and Clare Weisenberger and Anne and David Weisenberger, as well as sisters, Frances Roberts Barlow and Carol Ball Shoultz.
A Mass of Christian Burial will be postponed due to a family medical emergency and will be rescheduled. Thank you for your understanding.
