              Alice Arleen Erickson, 98, a lifelong resident of Lakeville passed away peacefully on September 14, 2018. She was born in Middleboro on May 9, 1920, daughter of Harry F. and Mary (Pittsley) Plissey. She graduated from Middleboro High School, class of 1938. In 1940 she married Kenneth B. Erickson and in 1947 they purchased the “Welcome Inn” on Bedford Street which was to become the home where they raised four children. Alice continued to live in that home until her death.

              When she was a child, her family was involved at the Grove Chapel Church which Alice joined in 1935. Later when Grove Chapel and Precinct Church merged to form the Lakeville United Church of Christ, Alice worked tirelessly for her church by involving herself in baking, catering, organizing ham and bean suppers and rummage sales. The church kitchen was later named “Alice’s Kitchen” in her honor. Alice was a member of the Women’s Fellowship, the Lakeville Historical Society, and an avid Red Sox fan.

              Alice was predeceased by her husband Kenneth B. Erickson, her daughter Sandra J. Horton and her son Ronald A. Erickson. She is survived by her son Steven K. Erickson and daughter-in-law Cathy, and daughter Janice A. Hartford and son-in-law Harry and will be lovingly remembered by her nine grandchildren, fourteen great-grandchildren, special nieces, and long-time friends. Alice loved sharing her talents with others. She was appreciative of all that people did for her and she never failed to speak her mind. Her spirit will be missed.

              Relatives and friends will gather for visiting hours on Saturday, September 22 from 9:00 to 11:30 at the Dahlborg-MacNevin Funeral Home, 280 Bedford Street, Lakeville followed by a graveside service at the Sampson Cemetery at 11:45.

              In lieu of flowers donations may be made in Alice’s memory to the Lakeville United Church of Christ, 1 Precinct Street, Lakeville, MA 02347.

I remember Alice as working tirelessly for our church for so many years,both to feed us spiritually and financially. Our church survives in great measure due to her loving and generous efforts over the years.
I also remember that wonderful loaf of bread she gave me at every Bean Supper for so long.
Rest in Peace Alice,you were and are one of a kind.
