January 1, 1944 — May 21, 2021

Alice M. George (nee Wetzel), age 77, of Upper Darby, PA, passed away on May 21, 2021.  Born in Philadelphia, PA, she was the daughter of the late Gottlieb A. and Elizabeth Wetzel (nee Landen).

Alice graduated high school from Villa Maria School in Malvern and then began her Nursing career by graduating from Thomas Jefferson School of Nursing.  This launched her journey and career in Nursing, a career that spanned 55 years.
