Alice Mae Rexroth Musser, 53, of Shippensburg, passed into eternity on Tuesday, June 2, 2020, after a brave and honorable fight for her life from Colon Cancer.

She was born on May 9, 1967, in Aurora, Colorado, the daughter of the late Rev. Stanley J. and Martha M. (Harmony) Rexroth, and married Brian J. Musser on Oct. 19, 1991. 

Upon graduation from Shippensburg University in 1989, Alice began a 31-year long career with Highmark Blue Shield, holding many positions throughout that time, making many friends, and leaving her mark on each department she contributed to.

Alice was a member of the Mowersville Brethren in Christ Church, where she served as Sunday School teacher to her beloved Golden Berean class, a Deacon’s wife, and a pianist and organist for Sunday Services.

She was also a member of the Chambersburg Quilt Guild with whom she enjoyed quilt retreats.

Alice enjoyed camping with her family, sewing, knitting, the beach, hot weather and having huge bonfires.

In addition to her husband of 28 years, she is survived by two daughters, Amanda M. Musser of Shippensburg and Brenna J. Musser (and fiancé, Benjamin C. Morrow) of Fayetteville; one grandson, Mason J. Musser; her mother, Martha M. Rexroth of Shippensburg; four brothers, Dale S. Rexroth and wife, Cheryl, of Woodstock, Ohio, Roy J. Rexroth Sr. and wife, Barbara, of Hampstead, Maryland, Alan J. Rexroth and wife, Tracy, of Williamsport, Maryland, and Brian S. Rexroth Sr. and wife, Bridget, of Springfield, Ohio; two sisters, Joyce M. Shackelford and husband, Dr. Howard, of Wheeling, West Virginia, and Beth S. Davis and husband, Daniel, of Shippensburg, Pennsylvania; and numerous nieces, nephews, great-nieces and great-nephews. She was preceded in death by her father, one niece, and one great-nephew.

A celebration of life gathering will be held at a future date.  Interment will be private.
