TAMPA, Fla. - Alice Brissette, 88, formerly of Wells and Berwick, Maine, died on January 16, 2021 at her daughter's home in Tampa, Florida following a brief illness.
Alice was born on May 15, 1932 on Blackberry Hill Road in Berwick Maine, one of ten children born to Harry and Alice Ricker.
She worked at Clarostat and Pratt & Whitney. In retirement she pursued many interests: knitting, sewing, gardening, as well as taking many road trips to all parts of the US with her husband Ben and their friends. She was a spitfire, very active and social up until the last six months of her life when illness compromised her mobility.
She is survived by her daughter, Carol Messier Bartz of Tampa, stepdaughter Robin (Peter) Kirk of Gilford NH, brothers Harry Ricker of S. Berwick, Floyd (Beth) Ricker of Lebanon, and Chester Ricker also of Lebanon.
Alice was preceded in death by her husband of 30 years, Benjamin Brissette, her brother Carl Ricker and sisters Florence Hahn, Lillian Ricker, Lucille Berry, and Nancy Vaillancourt.
She leaves behind many close nieces, nephews, and very good friends who will miss her dearly.
