Obituary

1937-2019

Alice Duisberg Armstrong

 

Alice Duisberg Armstrong of Winter Springs, Florida was born on August 10th, 1937 and went to be with the Lord on April 22, 2019 at the age of 81. Alice was born in Germantown, Pennsylvania, and during her early childhood she and her family moved to Englewood, Florida. She graduated from Venice High School. Caring for others was Alice’s passion, and with that in mind she decided to pursue a career in nursing.  She attended college at Florida Southern College in Lakeland, Florida where she was a member of Alpha Delta Pi Sorority.  She kept in close touch with her sorority sisters over the years. She went on to attend nursing school at Orange Memorial Hospital.  After completing nursing school, she worked as a nurse for over 4 decades in Sarasota and Orlando areas. She loved caring for others, and this gave her much joy. In 1986, she furthered her studies and graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Central Florida.

Alice met the love of her life, Lee, in 1976, and they were married 43 years. Alice and Lee enjoyed traveling together over the years. Some of their favorite trips were to Ireland, Alaska, Israel and a European river cruise. Together they enjoyed spending summers at their home on  Prince Edward Island. They especially loved lobster dinners with all of their special Canada friends. Alice and Lee also loved the times with their children and grandchildren at New Smyrna Beach.

Alice’s greatest past time was spending time with family and especially her grandchildren. Some favorite things to do with “Mimi” were Disney World, games, arts and crafts and beach trips. “Mimi” personified what it truly meant to be a follower of Jesus. Her love was unconditional; she was gracious and caring, always demonstrating selflessness towards her family and friends.

Alice spent much of her time volunteering and serving others. A few of the organizations she served were Buddy Break Respite Care, Tuskawilla Presbyterian Church, Meals on Wheels, Sheperd’s Hope Clinic, and feeding the homeless. Alice was a Stephen Minister, a deacon at her church and a member of the Audubon Society. An avid reader, Alice belonged to 2 book clubs; UCF and TPC book clubs.

 Alice is preceded in death by her parents, Marion Gallagher Duisberg and Fredrick Carl Duisberg, and brother, Frederick Carl Duisberg, Jr.

She is survived by her loving husband, Lee Harold Armstrong; daughter, Christy Horsburgh; daughter and son-in-law, Lisa and Philip Carrington;  son and daughter-in-law, Jill and David Horsburgh; daughter and son-in-law, Jennifer and Aaron McKinney.  She is survived by eight adoring grandchildren: Caroline and Cullen Guglielmo, Emily Carrington, Jamie Gray, Ava Horsburgh, Ben Horsburgh, Jude McKinney, and Lola McKinney.

    We feel priveleged to have met Lee and Ali through the years when they visited their beloved Blooming Point.
    It is a tradition with islanders to relay news that summer guesta of family and frieds had arrived , by mentioning that "they were home" Lee, I know that Blooming Pointers always put out the welcome mat , when you " got home". Lèe, we grieve with you and pray that your faith will help ease your loss and paìn

    As an Islander, I too was always glad to see the day the mailbox was put in the ground, as I knew when it was planted, Ali and Lee were 'home' on PEI for the summer, or at least part of it. I was so fortunate to have Ali (and Lee) as my next door neighbors for almost 13 years.

    Ali loved our little island, and was passionate of having our island way of life as part of her life. Going to local plays or musical events, to the farmers market in the city, or family dinners, or bonfires in the country. From attending church, and then over for brunch at the community hall; or, just taking a drive around the island coastline, or a walk on the beach - Ali tried to do them all, and she loved it all. Ali kept her close friends close, and entertained them all with her grace.

    Ali mentioned last summer when she was home on PEI that she wanted to spend more time with the grandchildren, so the trips to PEI wouldn't be as long as they used to be.

    From me to you Ali: "Ali, I hope you got to spend all that precious time, and then some, with your loving children and grandchildren, before the Lord called you home, where you live now for eternity. My heart is broken...the summers won't be the same without seeing you sitting on the front porch and laughing with family and friends." And Oh ya, "Say Hi to Wayne OK!"

    To Lee and the rest of the family, my sincere condolences. You will miss her, but you will always have her memories, and know she loved you all dearly.

    With Hugs, and My Thoughts and Prayers,

    Marina (and Chad)

    Dearest Ali, thank you for being the best mother-in-law a girl could ever ask for! And the most loving grandmother, too. You have been a wonderful example for me! I love you and will miss you terribly but, as a Christian, I mourn as one who has hope - hope that you are with Jesus and hope that we will meet again. I love you very much. Love, Jill Horsburgh
