On September 16, 1961 in South Bend, IN, she was united in marriage to Loran “Skip” Miller. He preceded her in death on November 29, 1993. She was also preceded in death by two sisters, Victoria M. McGrew, and Marie Wlodarski, and two brothers, John Przybylski, and Frank Przybylski.

Alice is survived by her daughter, Gail (Kevin) Szucsits of South Bend and her son, David A. (Lorra) Miller of South Bend; ex-daughter-in-law, Judy Miller; eight grandchildren, Maran Davila, Jamie Minder, David Miller, Carrie Miller, Justin Szucsits, Dustin Miller, Daniel Miller, and Danielle Szucsits.

Alice retired as a brake assembler with the Bendix Corporation after 31 years of employment.  She later worked at Target for nine years.  As an avid Notre Dame fan, she worked there for five years.  As a result of Alice’s faith in the Lord the family remained very close.  She was a member of Christ the King Catholic Church, South Bend; and a longtime member of the Moose Lodge Auxiliary. She enjoyed playing cards, Bingo, and Yahtzee.
