Alice Gibbons Brasky, 83 of Batavia, died peacefully on July 3, 2019 at her home with her loving children by her side.
If you were to ask her what she felt was her most important accomplishment in life, she would answer, "Raising up a fine family." Though she had met with business success in her senior years, Alice felt that having a lasting influence in the lives of her children and grandchildren has been her most satisfying achievement.
