Alice B. (Pfeifer) McKinney

Alice B. (Pfeifer) McKinney, 77, of Eagle Hill Road, longtime companion of the late Lawrence Lane formerly of Peabody, died Wednesday, February 4, 2015 in the Beverly Hospital following her brief illness.

She led an active life and throughout the years was a hard worker, working up to the age of seventy-one.  Her dream was fulfilled when she moved to her Eagle Hill home with an ocean view and from where she enjoyed boating.
