Alyce Ryan

Alyce Ryan of Liberty Lake passed away Dec. 15, 2012, after a long illness.

Born in Missoula, Mont., on Sept. 29, 1931, she was the daughter of Melvin and Dorothy Gibbons. She was raised in Arlington, Wash., and graduated from Arlington High School. She was married for 47 years to the late John Ryan.

Alyce is survived by her daughters, Cathy Reese (Gary) of Virginia Beach, Va., and Diane Ryan of Kent, Wash.; her son, Steve Ryan of Liberty Lake; her brother, Donald Gibbons (Margit) of Silvana, Wash.; her grandchildren, Ryan Reese (Melissa) of Norfolk, Va., Kelly Kaufman (Evan) of Richmond, Va., and her great-grandson, Calvin.

Her brother, Bob Gibbons, and her sister, Esther Adcock, predeceased her.

Alyce's gift was sewing, and she produced many unique gift items that she sold at one time at her gift shop in Sandpoint, Idaho. She lived at Liberty Lake for more than 50 years and was a member of the Beachcombers Garden Club and instrumental in starting the community senior lunch.


The family would like to thank the doctors, nurses and staff at Valley Hospital for their professional and compassionate care during her recent stay in the hospital.

There will be a graveside service in October in Silvana.  In lieu of flowers, donations to your favorite charity would be appreciated.
