Alice S. Wilson (Allie) originally of North Hills, Pennsylvania died peacefully Saturday, November 17, 2018 at Masonic Village of Lafayette Hill, where she was a resident. She was 93 years old. Allie was born July 14, 1925 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, daughter of the late Walter E Stallsmith and the late Alta B. Stallsmith (nee Vredenburg). She was the beloved wife of the late Thomas G. Wilson, married 74 years; mother of Nancy W. Smith (Robert) and the late Phyllis V. (Ginger) Hoff (Paul); grandmother of Travis, Abbey, and Cassie and great-grandmother of Jake, Zack, Ford, Summer, Rex, Tyler, and Harper. She loved her family very much.

Allie grew up in the Chestnut Hill section of Philadelphia where her father was a pharmacist. She graduated from Germantown High School in January 1942. She had received a scholarship to attend the Philadelphia College of Pharmacy and Science, but had to give up the scholarship after her father passed away and needed to join the workforce instead. Allie began her work career at Provident Mutual Insurance Company and retired from the C. A. Briggs Company.

Both Allie and Tom were very active in school and the North Hills community. Tom was a fireman and Allie was part of the Ladies Auxiliary. They loved to square dance and helped form a local club called the Edge Hill Squares that met at the Edge Hill Fire Company. Square dancing brought the opportunity to dance all over the country, and they loved to travel throughout the United States. They even wintered in Harlingen, Texas as retirees with a community known for its square dancing. After retirement, Allie and Tom had the chance to travel all over the country in their travel trailer.

Allie volunteered for the activities of her daughters. She was active in Girl Scouting, a leader for 5 years, band parent, and swim team parent. In her free time, Allie loved to read, do crossword puzzles, sewed, did needlework, and always enjoyed a good laugh.

She will be forever missed and memories will continue to live on in our hearts.

A private service was held at the Washington Crossing National Cemetery.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in her memory to the Edge Hill Fire Company, 2843 Limekiln Pike, Glenside, PA 19038.
