Alice Leone (née Russo) of Eastchester passed away peacefully on October 18, 2017. She was 65 years old. Predeceased by her parents Inez and Constantine, sister-in-law Loretta, and many aunts and uncles. Loving wife of Robert for 33 years, devoted mother of Allegra and Ursula, and dear sister of Thomas, she will be missed by all. A longtime resident of Eastchester, Alice was a native of the Bronx. She was a proud alumna of the Academy of Mount Saint Ursula, the College of New Rochelle, and Fordham University. Alice worked as a librarian in the New York City schools, advocating for and educating countless students over the course of her career. She enjoyed reading, walks on the Bronx River path, summers at the pool, and spending time with family and friends. Her wit, charm, and charisma will be greatly missed.
