Alice Sue Thompson Fry

    Alice (Thompson) Fry (78), a loving and beloved mother, grandmother, sister, and aunt, has passed away after a courageous 4-year battle with cancer. Alice was born on January 10, 1944, in Bakersfield, CA to Harold and Cecelia Thompson. Alice attended St. Francis Elementary before graduating from Garces Memorial High School. She received her A.A. from Bakersfield College. A teacher at heart and by trade, Alice spent 35
    years working as a religious educator, rising to Director of Religious Education at St. Francis Parish. A life-long resident of Bakersfield, Alice loved C.A.L.M., the Public Library, and her cabin on Poso Creek. Her greatest joy came from spending time with her grandchildren. As their
    number one cheerleader, Alice attended every event, meeting, and conference and will be fondly remembered for her “Adventures with Grandma”. A devout Catholic, Alice’s deep faith extended beyond the church and out into the world. Her actions and the life she lived were
    imbued with a certainty of and trust in God’s plan. Alice believed in the inherent good in all of us and could find patience and humor in situations that would have driven most others crazy. Preceded in death by husband Leslie Vance Fry (2016) and son Thomas Jeffery Fry (2022), Alice is survived by children Kathy Cook (Steve), Kenneth, Joseph (Kathy), Eric, Becky Alves (Elder), daughter-in-law Darci Fry, 13 Grandchildren, and 6 Great-Grandchildren. She also leaves behind siblings Peggy, Patricia, Michael (Letitia), David, and Mary (Jim), numerous nieces, nephews, great-nieces and great-nephews, extended family, and countless friends.
    Rosary will be held Thursday, May 5, 2022, at 6 PM, at Saint Francis Parish, 900 H Street. Mass will be held Friday, May 6, 2022, at 10 AM, at Saint Francis Parish, followed by interment at Hillcrest Memorial Park, 9101 Kern Canyon Road. A reception will follow at Saint Francis Parish Hall.
    In lieu of flowers, please donate to C.A.L.M., Kern County Library, St. Francis Parish, or a Catholic Parish of your choice.
