Sister Alice Matthew Thees died peacefully at Mountainside Hospital on June 12 after a long life in ministry. Most recently, Sister was the founder and administrator of Siena Village, an affordable apartment residence for senior citizens, retiring from there just two years ago. She earned a Ph.D. in math and college administration from Columbia University in 1972. Sister is well remembered as an expert math teacher at several  high schools including Saint Dominic Academy, Jersey City, where she also served as principal. From 1964-75 Sister served as Professor of Mathematics and Chair of the Math Department at Caldwell College, returning there as Academic Dean from 1969-1975. A loyal friend to many, Sister’s energetic presence will be greatly missed.
