She was born in Greenport Jan. 19, 1926, the only child of Margery (Van Wyck) and Alfred Reiter.
She graduated from Greenport High School and, along with two former classmates, was honored to christen one of the landing craft built at the Greenport Shipyard for use during World War II. Alice then worked for the American Red Cross in Washington, D.C., and later worked as a riveter at Consolidated Vultee Aircraft in San Diego.

First helping on the Dzenkowski family farm in East Marion, Alice later worked for the USDA Plum Island Animal Disease Center, retiring as a supervisory purchasing agent after 20 years. She then worked another 20 years for East End Marine Supply in Greenport.
Ms. Dzenkowski was a member of St. Agnes R.C. Church and had formed and was leader for the East Marion Girl Scout troop. She enjoyed painting, quilting projects, researching genealogy and was an avid reader, particularly of local East End history.
