She was born in Epsom, on November 25,
1918 to Fred and Ernestine (Montminy) Fife, where she grew up and
attended school. She began her career as one of the first of four
women to work at Sprague Electric, and then went on to serve most of
her working years employed with the State of NH as an Office Manager

She wed her first husband, Ned Witham in

Vaudeville act; playing the guitar, piano and accordion; or simply
by telling inappropriate stories and jokes to her family and
friends. Other interests included caring for her beloved pets,
summer activities at Lucas Pond and Northwood Lake, puzzles and
beating her grandchildren at cards and board games.
Even through her last moments she kept her
strength, wit, young-spirited heart and mind and most of all the
love for her family and friends. She leaves behind her two
granddaughters, Liane “Tina” Alosa of Allenstown and Gina Alosa of
Pittsfield; three great grandchildren, Sara Alosa Tremaine and her
