Alice Gardiner / Bible Quizzing Director | email

Alice was born and raised in Hornell, New York. She went to SUNY Geneseo to pursue a teaching career but only attended there one year. After becoming engaged to her husband, she decided to transfer to Alfred State, which was closer to her home and her fiancé.

At Alfred, Alice switched her field of study from teaching to accounting. On May 30,1970, she graduated from Alfred in the morning, and then in the evening, married the love of her life, Dave. Amazingly, they squeezed in time to watch the Memorial Day parade that day too!

Alice worked in the accounting field for about 12 years. Soon after, she made a career shift into education and accepted a teaching assistant position at Canisteo-Greenwood Central School. She taught there for 25 years until retiring in 2005. 

Now as Family Life’s Bible Quizzing Director, Alice feels right at home. She loves teaching and has coached Bible Quizzing teams for nearly three decades until retiring to take care of her elderly parents. She never could have considered this position without the support and help from her husband.

Alice and Dave celebrated their 50th Wedding Anniversary in 2020.  They live in Canisteo, NY and have two married daughters, Becky and Christy. Becky and her husband Dan are pastors at Hillside Wesleyan Church in Olean, NY. They have two children, Lily & Josiah. (The best grandchildren ever!) Christy and her husband Mike live near Albany, NY. The whole family enjoys getting together as often as possible!
