Alice Hubbert Forbes

Alice Hubbert Forbes, 85, of Laconia, NH, passed away peacefully on Thursday, December 5,

2013 while listening to her favorite hymns.

Alice moved to her beloved New Hampshire after her husband of 56 years, Fred W. Forbes,

Jr. passed away on December 8, 2011. After raising their children in Coventry, Rhode Island,

Alice and Fred spent thirty five wonderful years in Federal Way, Washington, where she and her

husband were avid church goers and volunteered for many local charitable events. They loved

motor home traveling and had many friends in their “southern” home (their RV in Arizona).

They loved to travel and enjoyed many vacations throughout the world, but their favorite place

was the family cabin, which was built by Alice’s grandparents. Every summer was spent enjoying family and friends at Pocumtuck, near Wolfeboro, New Hampshire.

Alice was preceded in death by her husband Fred, and her sister, Joie B Hubbert.

She is survived by her three wonderful children, Bryan and his wife Waneta of Plymouth, NH,

Barry and his wife Jaime of Commerce Township, MI, and Wendy, who moved to Laconia, NH with Alice to be her caregiver for the last year and a half; three grandchildren Katlyn, Tyler and his wife Rayssa, and Brittney. Alice also loved animals and we cannot forget her fuzzy grandchildren, Keba and Mr. Kitty, and her four-legged roommates, Magik and Molly.

Alice touched every person she ever met with her amazing spirit and engaging smile. She was an

inspiration to her children, her grandchildren, and countless people throughout her life.

A celebration of Alice’s life will be held next summer at the family cabin, and will be announced

at a later date.

In lieu of flowers, donation may be made in Alice’s memory to the NH Humane Society: NHHS, P.O. Box 572, Laconia, NH 03247 www.nhhumane.org
