Alice Benedict, age 87 of Kalamazoo, went to be with her Lord and Savior on April 9, 2023, Easter Sunday. She was born on August 7, 1935, in Battle Creek, Michigan, the daughter of John and Grace (Hughes) Rine. Alice was a 1953 graduate of Hastings High School.

She was preceded in death by her parents, her husband Norman, and her brothers John and Gordon Rine. Alice was a devoted wife, mother and a God-fearing believer who loved working as a greeter at her church, Northeastern Baptist Church. She enjoyed cooking, knitting, and spending time with her friends at church. Alice loved Jesus! She really wanted to ensure all her family served God in the church and she prayed faithfully for those that needed Christ.
