Alyce M. (McNamee) Carrigan, 95, of Lancaster, died Friday, Jan. 29, 2016, at Hamilton Arms.

Born in Philadelphia, she was the wife of the late Daniel Anthony Carrigan, who died in 1980. She was the daughter of the late Hugh and Agnes (Henry) McNamee.

Alyce was a faithful and active member of St. James Catholic Church, Lititz, for more than 50 years.

She is survived by her children: Mary Elise Lisa Carrigan of Lititz; Marguerite Carrigan McHenry and her husband Victor, of Alexandria, Va.; and Daniel Joseph Carrigan and his wife Althea of Columbia; and seven grandchildren: Allison and William Bader, both of New York City; and Meghan Bader of Arlington, Va.

She was the last surviving member of her family, all of her siblings being from the Philadelphia area.
