Alice Gomes, 89, died on Monday, Aug. 27, 2012 in Lodi.

She was born on July 13, 1923 in Turlock.

Mrs. Gomes was a lifetime resident of Escalon. She was a 50-year member of St. Patrick's Catholic Church. Being a homemaker was very important to her. She always made sure her family was content and happy, which was always her number one priority. She enjoyed cooking as she constantly had a hot meal on the table for anyone who walked through the door. She also had another side to her that was extremely adventurous. She loved the challenge of keeping up with her grandchildren. She always looked forward to new and exciting things with them such as swimming with stingrays on vacation and horseback riding. She enjoyed her many travels throughout her lifetime to Hawaii, Aruba, Belize, the Grand Caymans and the Azores. She will be remembered as a wonderful mother and an amazing grandmother. She will be missed.

Survivors include her children Connie Vieira (Tony) of Lodi and Tony Gomes (Kathy) of Escalon; four grandchildren, Gena Vieira, Julie Vieira both of Stockton, Jennifer Stinson of Arizona and Jacob Gomes of Escalon; and five great-grandchildren, Daniel, Edward, Jacob, Emilia, and Alexandria.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Teotonio Gomes, as well as her brothers Leonard, Harry, Raphael and Joe Luis.
