Ms. Alice E. Duffy, of Naples, Florida, formerly of Freedom, New Hampshire and Waltham died Wednesday, February 3, 2021 in Care Dimensions Hospice Residence in Lincoln. She was 76.

Alice was born August 1, 1944 in Waltham a daughter of the late Lawrence and Alice (Quirk) Duffy. She was a graduate of Harwich High School.

She worked as a secretary for the City of Waltham in the office of Charlie Graceffa. She then worked for over twenty-five years with distinction as an officer for the Central Intelligence Agency. Upon retirement she volunteered with the Federal Emergency Management Agency.

An avid golfer she was a member of Indian Mound Country Club in Ossipee, New Hampshire and The Pars Golf Course in Naples, Florida.

In addition to her parents she is predeceased by her siblings, Lt. Lawrence Duffy and John Duffy (late Mary).

She leaves her sister, Janet M. Maguire (Jack) of Waltham and her brother, Paul F. Duffy (Edna) of Amelia Island, Florida; her sister-in-law, Scarlett Duffy of Marathon, Florida; many nieces & nephews cousins and dear friends.

Family and friends will honor and remember Alice's life by gathering on Wednesday, February 10th in Our Lady Comforter of the Afflicted Church, 880 Trapelo Road, Waltham, where her funeral Mass will be celebrated at 10 a.m. Burial will follow in Mount Feake Cemetery, Waltham. There are no calling hours.

Those wishing to view Alice's service may do so at 10 a.m. on Wednesday, February 10th via the following link:

In lieu of flowers memorials in her name may be made to Our Lady's Parish, 880 Trapelo Road, Waltham, MA 02452.

Tuesday, December 22, 2020 – a note from the funeral home pursuant to Governor Baker's recent order:

During times of uncertainty and crisis one might wonder what to do at the loss of a loved one or how to show support to a friend given the limitations that the pandemic continues to present.

Telephone your friend to offer words of love, support and a verbal hug, drop something delicious by the house, leave a condolence on the funeral home website, make a donation to their favored charity, send a card or flowers or have a Mass said, remain in touch, and above all else . . . say prayers for the deceased and their family and the world during this difficult and unprecedented time.

These simple gifts of sympathy and charity are more valuable than you will ever know.

When public wakes are held capacity limits mean that your visit to the venue where they are held should be brief to allow other guests time to say hello to the family. Only members of the immediate family remain present throughout.

It goes without saying that people who have lost someone are especially sensitive and understanding to the concerns that some of their own family members and friends may have about visiting any public places right now. If this does not feel like the right time for you to venture out please don't.

Space limitations also mean that funeral services inside the funeral home and in many places of worship will also be private. Most services, at the family's request, will also be livestreamed and recorded for future viewing. The link to access the channel is found at the bottom of the obituary notice online.

Cemetery services are included in the current outdoor gathering limit of twenty-five people.

During any events, public or private, common sense precautions prevail. That includes masks covering your nose and mouth, staying with your household group throughout the services and keeping a sensible distance. Thank you . . . again . . . for your patience and understanding.
