Alice Elizabeth Hills Foote is still remembered for many things. Born September 21, 1868, she passed away on June 14, 1980 at the age of 111, just 3 months shy of her 112th birthday. Alice still holds the title of "Longest Living Resident" in the State of Connecticut. Her annual birthdays, starting at age 100, were covered by every major newspaper in the state.

Alice was famous for her rugs and rugmaking, her commitment to the Gilead Congregational Church, her love of family and community... and her homemade doughnuts!
