Alice Kathleen (Dukie) Pollock, age 78, passed away on May 7, 2020 at the home of her nephew and niece, Nathaniel and Tammy Campbell, surrounded by her family. Alice was born September 4, 1941 in Washington, DC to the late Edward Leo and Mary Louise Smith. Shortly thereafter, the family moved to Lexington Park, MD where she was raised. She attended Cardinal Gibbons High School in Ridge, MD and graduated in 1959.
Alice was employed as a cashier/bookkeeper at A&P (SuperFresh) Food store in Lexington Park, MD for over 33 years. After her retirement, she worked 10 years at DYNCORP on Patuxent Naval Air Station. She enjoyed fishing, crossword puzzles, television game shows, football games (Redskins), bowling, and baseball (Orioles and Nationals were her teams). She spoiled every newborn in the Smith Family. She enjoyed spending time with her family and friends. She was born in the Catholic faith and was a member of Immaculate Heart of Mary Catholic Church where she served as a greeter and Eucharistic minister.
After a long engagement, Alice was united in Holy Matrimony to Furney V. Pollock, Jr. on January 4, 1985. They shared the gifts of God’s love and each other for more than 40 years.
