Alyce Marie Blackmer went to sleep in Jesus on December 17, 2021, at the age of 60. Alyce was born in Lansing, Michigan, on January 11, 1961, the daughter of Lyle and Marion (Fuller) Lawrence.

She was a loving wife, mother, mother-in-law, grandmother, and sister. She worked alongside her husband, Scott, at the Hamlin Fire Department and was lovingly referred to as “Chief A.” Alyce loved knitting, crocheting, reading, and camping with her husband.
