After a long battle with Alzheimers disease, Alice passed away peacefully, lovingly surrounded by family on December 21, 2015. Alice is survived by her husband Fred; children Lori Terry (Mark), Kathi Hansen (Bob), Chuck Hunt (Dione), and Scott Hunt (Shelly); stepchildren Steven Meyer (Lisa) and Lisa Enfantino (Chris); siblings Bill Lux (Janet), Linda Seglem (Kurt), Matt Lux (Patty); many nieces and nephews; and sixteen grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her first husband Charles Hunt and parents Bill and Alice Lux.
Alice was born in Philadelphia, PA on December 14, 1937 and raised in Upper Darby, PA. Alice spent summers working and vacationing at her aunt’s hotel in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, where she caught the eye of Charles Hunt. After a brief courtship, they married on May 24, 1958 and proceeded to have 4 children.
In 1973, the Hunt family relocated to San Jose, CA to raise their children. After Charlie passed away in 1986, Alice met and married Fred Meyer in 1989 who remained her loving husband and caretaker throughout her illness.
Alice was a successful Real Estate Broker in Almaden Valley earning a multitude of Awards. She retired in 1996 to travel and spend time with her husband and 16 grandchildren. She was a beautiful, impeccably dressed, loving, wife, mother, aunt, friend, and grandmother (aka Mom-Mom) who was an amazing role-model who will be sorely missed.
On January 2, 2016, a Celebration of Alice’s Life will begin with a viewing at 10 am then service at 11 at Chapel of the Hills, 615 N Santa Cruz Ave, Los Gatos, CA 95030, followed by an internment at Los Gatos Memorial Park.

Mom you were my idol and mentor. I will miss the 49er games, birthday dinners and Elephant Bar lunches. Your support, love, courage, strength, and strong ethics showed me the path to success in life and business. Be at peace with Dad. I love you and miss you! Thanks for everything.
Mom, thank you for always being there for me and making me the woman I am today. You told me a few weeks ago you wanted to be remembered as being kind and compassionate…you are that and more…loving, giving, strong, and so brave - especially in the end. You are my BFF, too, and I miss you like crazy. I am glad your suffering is over and you are finally happy again. I love you.
My dear Alice always with that “twinkle” in your eye and a great smile…got to everyone each and every time. We had so many adventures; traveling, golfing, going to movies, shopping & shopping, dining & for sure having a little cocktail. We had a friendship that few people have and most wish for. Rest, cherished friend, and know I will miss and love you forever.
Thank you for being such a wonderful mother to me! When I was young, you taught me to love life, laugh, & make the best out of every situation. When our Dad passed, you instilled in me 'God has his reason for everything', which I live by every day. You were there for my family & just a phone call away when I needed to cry or laugh with you. I'm so happy you are at peace now! I love you!
We had met Alice a few times at family parties but got to know her better when she became our realtor. Tim and I were driving around looking at open houses and saw her sign so we stopped by. We chatted for awhile and after we let her know we didn't have a realtor yet, she said, I'm your realtor now! And so she was. She helped us find our wonderful home and we became friends.
Page 2! She lectured me about what you COULD NOT do in a formal living room, no toys or computers! She listened when I told her the street name of the house we bought must be "normal" after living on Kooser for 10 years. She had champagne with us when we closed at 10am. We always enjoyed seeing her thru the years and have missed that but know she is now healthy and whole. Love,The Tempels
I will always remember you as the beautiful, elegant woman with the mischievous smile and twinkle in your eyes. I am happy to know that you are now in a beautiful place where you can laugh and dance forever.
Have a suggestion for us?
