Alice L. Bodzick, 81

Alice L. Bodzick, 81, of Harbor Springs, died Nov. 27, 2002, at Northern Michigan Hospital in Petoskey.

Mass of the Resurrection will be held at 10:30 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 30, at Holy Childhood Church in Harbor Springs. The Rev. Frank Kordek, O.F.M., will be the celebrant. Interment will take place in Holy Childhood Cemetery.

Alice was born Jan. 1, 1921, in Harbor Springs, the daughter of George and Ida (Robinson) Hartung. She attended Harbor Springs schools and graduated in 1939. She then attended a beauty academy in Traverse City and worked for a while as a cosmetologist.

On Oct. 7, 1944, she married Joseph P. Bodzick in Harbor Springs and the couple have made their home there since.

She enjoyed baking and reading but her greatest joy came from her family. She was a member of Holy Childhood Church.

Alice is survived by her husband; daughters, Sue (James) Richards, Marge (William) Owen, and son, Ted (Kathy) Bodzick, all of Harbor Springs, and a daughter-in-law, Karen Bodzick, of Petoskey. There are seven grandchildren, Katie Allor, Kara Munro, Heather Testa, Christopher Bodzick, Becca Sanghvi, Jeffrey Bodzick Jr., Jennifer Bodzick. There are seven great-grandchildren and many nieces and nephews. Alice was preceded in death by her son, Jeffrey, and sisters, Doris Swiss, Mavis Slifka, Waunetta Booth and Helen Coveyou.

In lieu of flowers, the family suggests memorial donations be made to the Jeffrey Bodzick Sr. Athletic Scholarship. Envelopes will be available at the church, where friends may call from 6-8 p.m. today, Friday, Nov. 29. A rosary will be recited at 7 p.m.

"She was truly loved by her family."

Arrangements were handled by the Schiller Funeral Home of Harbor Springs.
