SAVANNAH, Ga. -- Alice Pendleton Stevens, 24, beloved daughter of Pendleton and Dorothy Mikelonis Stevens, formerly from Kennebunk and Carlisle, Penn., and sister of Edwin and Mark died Nov. 4, 2013. She and her boyfriend Forrest Ison were killed by an unknown assailant in front of their home in Savannah, Ga. There is no known motive and the police investigation is continuing.
Alice was personable, bright, and multi-talented but her most admirable qualities were her sensitivity and compassion for people of all ages. She was non-judgmental about anyone's social or economic status and was deeply concerned for the underprivileged and those degraded by prejudice. Her love of animals was enormous and she rescued and loved whatever homeless animal crossed her path. Her acquaintances from work and her neighborhood said that Alice always had 'a big smile and warm hello' for them. Alice was humble and would be surprised to know that her kind and friendly nature made a difference to so many people. Alice's tragic death left her rich potential and her many dreams unfulfilled. Her family is comforted by the thought that in her brief life she brought moments of laughter and joy to those she encountered.
A private service was held on Nov. 10th at the Curlew Hills Funeral Home in Palm Harbor, Fla.
