She had not had any problems. Not sure what happened and an autopsy runs $3500 so it will remain a mystery. She had complained of chills on Wednesday. She was a dandy and a good friend for close to 50 years. I never contemplated a Billiken basketball season without Mary Alice.

Terrible news. Got to know her a little bit over the last few years. I used to smoke and would talk to her during halftime of the game in the smoking pen. I would even make the trip after I quit just to chat her up. She was one of a kind. The program will miss her.

She would always report seeing you and talking to you. The Billikens were a huge part of her life and she enjoyed every minute of it, especially the last two years with all the success. What a way to go out for a Billiken fan, ride the success, have a good day and pass.

What a shame. Sat a couple rows behind her when we were at Kiel Center. Awesome lady and one of the biggest Billiken fans I've ever met. Never ran into her at Chaifetz. A real loss for SLU.

I remember sitting with and getting to know her (and Ken) during the Billiken trip to Memphis about a dozen or so years ago. I didn't know her well but enough to say Hi whenever we passed each other at games or any other function. Like everyone else said a great fan and a nice lady. My sincerest condolences to you Ken and all of her family.

Ken, I'm so sorry to hear about the loss of Mary Alice. I always enjoyed seeing you two on road trips and always remember thinking that you must have been on every road trip since you made just about every one I went on. It will be a shame that she won't be able to go to the sweet 16 with the bills this year although she surely be watching from above. I can't imagine there being a better billiken fan than Mary Alice.

Thanks, she was a character and one of the biggest Billiken fans of us all; It was quite a shock. Had been friends for 47 years, since my freshman year at SLU. I ended my eulogy at her funeral with "I never contemplated a Billiken basketball season without you." SLU AD and staff were in attendance and sent flowers and were first class, as always.
