She had a strong love for baseball, and spent many hours watching the sport with one of her closet siblings, Ernest, who loved the game as much as she did. She loved to play cards with her family and friends. She had a passion for cooking and you could always count on a delicious home-cooked meal whenever she was around.

She loved all of her family deeply but she had a strong connection to: Karen Kelser, her self-proclaimed daughter whom she nurtured for over forty years; her nieces, Joyce Yates and Terry Glascoe; and Edward Toyer.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her sister, Edna Dorsey; her brothers, Elmer Dorsey, John Dorsey, Joseph Dorsey, Francis Dorsey, and Oscar Dorsey.

On Tuesday, April 5, 2011 at her home in Waldorf, Maryland and surrounded by her family, Alice peacefully transitioned from this earthly life to life eternal.

Dunbar, Sr., self-proclaimed daughter, Karen Kelser and her husband, Khaled Hamami and daughters, Imani and Dina, stepmother, Alice E.
