In 1962, while at the age of 16, Alice, along with brothers Robert, Albert, and John moved to Gardner, MA with their parents, where they embarked on a new and uncertain life journey in a foreign land. She was especially proud of becoming a United States Citizen. Alice worked alongside her husband, Paul, within their business, Campbell Realty Trust. She and Paul shared 35 years of marriage until his passing in September, 2013. Alice was devoted to, found peace within, and loved with her Christian faith. She was a communicant at Sacred Heart Church of Gardner, where she served as a Minister of the Eucharist and altar server. She, her husband, son, Paul, and brother-in-law George Campbell embarked on many trips to Italy, with her dear friends Eileen George of Meet the Father Ministry, and Dr. Cheryl Nygard, and family, which they enjoyed tremendously.

Alice, along with her husband, and son, Paul, cared for George for 30 years in their home. He had become disabled due to a traumatic brain injury as a result of an ATV accident while he lived in Maine. Her selfless act of kindness and devotion to family allowed George to maintain his dignity while he enjoyed a relatively normal, productive, and full life until his passing. Alice was a wonderfully devoted and loving wife, mother, and grandmother. She loved, and was especially proud of, her three sons and daughters-in-law who also loved her dearly. She leaves Michael J. and his wife, Julie A. (Feltmarch) Campbell and Paul M.J. Campbell all of Gardner, James R. and his wife, Dr. Debra (Latour) Campbell of Woodstock, Connecticut.
