Jedlicka, Alice Marie
(nee Mueller) Baptized into Christ’s Resurrection on October 14, 2015.
A wonderful wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother, sister, cousin and godmother, Alice enhanced the lives of many for 88 years. Educated through Little Flower School, Xavier High School for Girls and St. Louis University. She married Joseph Frank Jedlicka, Jr., in 1950. At every gathering, Alice was the “life of the party” at the piano, while her husband was the chef and ready bartender, as well as her biggest fan. After her husband’s death in 1981, she dedicated her time to family, charities and putting smiles on everyone she met. Alice worked twenty years for Fr. Paul Sheridan SJ at Boys Hope Girls Hope, and devoted herself to many other charitable endeavors.
Alice treasured many friends who also enjoyed her great sense of humor and innate kindness. Despite living her recent years in declining health, she met every stage with faith, courage, grace and that persistent sense of humor. The family extends heart-felt thanks to the caring Sisters and staff at Mother of Good Counsel Home, who truly do God’s work on earth.
Alice was preceded in death by her husband Joseph Jedlicka Jr. and her brother Thomas Mueller, Jr., as well as her parents Thomas Mueller Sr. and Marie (Cleary) Mueller. Dear sister to Joseph (Nancy) Mueller and sister-in-law Terese Mueller (nee Novak). Devoted mother to Mimi (Chuck) McDonald; Elizabeth (Mark) Springer; Therese (Keith) Parker; Joseph (Melissa) Jedlicka III; and Frank (Danielle) Jedlicka. Adoring grandmother, called “GoGo” to Tom (Lisa); Brian; John; Joseph IV; Allison, Logan; Reese; and great grand- mother to Chloe and Maria.
