CHELMSFORD, MASS. — She was born in Whitehall, N.Y., on Feb. 25, 1914, the daughter of Harry Jesse and Mary Agnes (Hart) Childs.
Alice attended the Champlain Valley School of Nursing in Plattsburgh, N.Y., and finished her training as a registered nurse in 1937. While doing her student training at Champlain Valley Hospital, she met her husband, the late Reginald L. Stark of Altona, N.Y.
