Born on February 2, 1944, Alice grew up in Manville, New Jersey. She was one of eight children born to Peter and Stella Ogurkis. A loving wife, mother and grandmother, Alice was a true blessing to her family and to all who knew her in the community. Alice lived most of her life in New Jersey, spending over 35 years in Dunellen alone. She had strong ties to her local community through her employment as a bank teller in Manville (Manville National Bank), in Dunellen (Hudson United Bank) and in Warren (World Savings Bank).

In February, 2008 Alice and her husband John Tocheny (deceased) celebrated their 43rd wedding anniversary. Both Alice and John served as strong role models for their three children and five grandchildren.

Alice was a faithful member of the Catholic Church all of her life, recently attending St. John The Evangelist Roman Catholic Church in Dunellen. Before her illness, Alice served the church as a member of the Altar Rosary Prayer Group and generously volunteered her time to participate in other ministries offered at St. John’s.

Alice’s family includes two sons and a daughter. Michael and daughter-in-law Loretta Miller of Salem, Connecticut; John and  daughter-in-law Sari Tocheny of Bealton, Virginia; and Ann and son -in-law Mark D’addato of Frederick, Maryland.  Alice is also survived by five grandchildren: Claire, Nora, Katie, Gillian and Johnny.
