Alice graduated from Youngstown State University with a Bachelor’s Degree and went on to receive a Finance Degree from University of Wisconsin. For many years she worked as a Trust Officer at several banks until she met & married Dr. Anthony P Tocco and moved to Ormond Beach, Florida.
Alice was an avid animal lover through & through. She treated her dogs as her children and spoiled them very much. Her first love was Corky, which started her undying affection for what soon would be one of many. Next came Bailey, which left an imprint on many of our hearts with his sweet demeanor and big personality. After Bailey passed Tony & Alice adopted 2 girl pups Mia & Coco that put a smile on her face everyday with their high energy and love of life spirit. They kept Alice busy with their playful, mischievous, but always loving ways, that made her enjoy every minute with them. She was very involved with many local & social animal organizations where she will be missed by many.
She also enjoyed cooking and baking. Alice followed in the footsteps of her mother who was a gourmet chef. She loved entertaining for family & friends.
