Alice Sciore, 93

Alice Sciore, a well known Killington artist passed away peacefully on Jan. 1, 2023,  in Cranston, Rhode Island, where she has resided with her family for the past four years.

Born in Hoboken, New Jersey July 13, 1929 she was the devoted daughter of the late John Sciore and Helen Mazzocca Sciore.

Alice Sciore lived her life the way another famous Hoboken resident, Frank Sinatra, did: “Her Way.”

A talented artist she worked for JC Penney on 5th Avenue, Manhattan as a graphic designer in the  ’50s and ’60s where she used her passion for style to create amazing advertising before falling in love with Killington and relocating there in the late ’60s. Her unique flare and creativity along with her love of nature, the mountains and all its splendor led her to become a prominent member of the art community serving proudly on various boards including the Chaffee Art Center and involved in numerous creative projects.

Alice Sciore is survived by numerous family members and friends. Her three loves were family, friends and food. She spoke proudly of her family every day of her life as she was surrounded by artists, musicians, cooks and other creative people. She often said: “Darling, it is much cheaper to clothe me than feed me.”

Many feel it was her wish to pass on New Year’s Day so that those of us that love her will remember and toast her every year. One of her famous toasts was: “Eat, drink and be merry just don’t get caught.”

A celebration of Sciore’s life will be held at a later date.
