Alice Gray passed away in Silverdale, Washington August 6, 2017. Alice was born in Billings, Montana to Lloyd and Alberta Wilson.

Alice grew up in Billings, Montana and attended Montana State University Billings. In 1962 she was selected for a position with Western Airlines as a Stewardess. She flew with Western until her marriage to Myron "Mike" P. Gray on November 2, 1963. From that point on, Alice was a dedicated wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and friend to all. She was the anchor for the family during Mike's 30-year Navy career and beyond.

She brought much joy to so many people - always positive and had a distinctive "infectious" laugh that could be heard across the most boisterous room. She was the "light" in the room! It is an understatement to say that she was a tremendously social lady. Beyond her family and friends, her other passions included travelling, skiing, gardening and volunteering for countless causes.

Alice is survived by her husband of 53 years, Mike and sons Rod and Ric. Rod (Maria), Bremerton, Washington (Granddaughters: Meghan Gray Pesely, Kim Gray Anderson, Becca Gray, Jennifer Gray and great granddaughter Loretta Pesely). Ric (Ruth), Redmond, Washington (Granddaughter: Jessica Gray, Grandson: Paul Gray, Step-grandson's Eric and Wes Barkley). Also surviving is Alice's Sister, Carolyn (Roy) LaBard of Sarasota, Florida.

A memorial service will be held at the Summit Avenue Presbyterian Church in Bremerton, Washington at 4:30 P. M. on Monday, August 14, 2017. After the service, all are invited to a "Celebration of Life" at 6:30 P. M. at Mike and Alice's home at 12276 Ridgepoint Circle N. W. in Silverdale, Washington. Interment with the family attending will be the following day at the Tahoma National Cemetery, Kent, Washington at 1:45 on August 15, 2017
