She met her future husband, John, while on a bike trip to Nantucket Island. They were married soon after and moved to Cohasset where they raised their family.

Rounding out her service to the church, she helped start the popular soup and sandwich event and served on the altar guild. A lifelong volunteer, Alicia donated her time with the Girl Scouts and at the South Shore Hospital gift shop as well as other community organizations.
