Born in New York, NY, to parents William and Mary (Gilmore) Karl, Mary Alice lived in several places in Asia, Europe, and Pennsylvania before settling in Mendham, NJ, 40 years ago. She was a woman of immense faith and was a parishioner, volunteer, and employee of St. Joseph Church in Mendham.
Mary Alice attended and graduated from Molloy College with a Bachelor’s in Education, and went on to obtain her Master’s in Education from Adelphi University. She taught for 25 years at St. Joseph Catholic School in Mendham and was very involved in her church, serving as a lector, a Eucharistic Minister, and with the Bethany Ministry. She was an integral part of and a familiar face to everyone at St. Joseph Church.
