Alene was an amazing talented loving funny tell-it-like it is woman who touched my heart and thousands of students at Cal U. Rest in Peace, Alene, you were an energizer bunny, I can't believe you will be resting in the heavens …..instead most likely you will be creating delicious dishes for the angels above! God bless you as you have blessed so many.
