For countless years, she grew and sold flowers from her home on Main Road in Southold and will forever be remembered as "the Southold Flower Lady."
Predeceased by her husbands, John Droskoski and James Keeney, she leaves three children: Alice (Edward) Kramer of Southold, John Droskoski of Peconic and Dianne Droskoski of Wisconsin; eight grandchildren: Susan Vogel, Sharon Kramer, Kris Brown, Edward Kramer, John Droskoski, Chad Droskoski, Alan Baltazar and Ryan Baltazar; 11 great-grandchildren; and one great-great-grandchild.
The family received friends on Friday, March 20, at DeFriest-Grattan Funeral Home, where prayer services were offered by Father Marian Bicz. The Liturgy of Christian Burial was celebrated on Saturday, March 21, at Our Lady of Ostrabrama R.C. Church in Cutchogue by Father Bicz. Interment followed at Sacred Heart R.C. Cemetery.
Those wishing to remember Alice in a special way can make a memorial donation to the Southold Fire Department Rescue Squad.
