Alice Tente

Alice O. Tente, 71, of Cambridge, Maryland made her transition to the angels on February 22, 2018, with her loving husband by her side. She exhibited unparalleled faith, courage, strength, perseverance, and love until the moment of her passing.

Born on December 14, 1946 in Cambridge, MD, she was the daughter of the late Matthew “Bucky” Windsor and Dorothy G. (Phillips) Windsor, who lovingly called her "Izzy".

Alice graduated from Cambridge High School in 1965. In 1986 she met and fell in love with Joseph W. Tente, they married on September 19, 1987, living in Rhode Island until moving back to Cambridge, MD in 1991.

Alice was passionate about helping others along with working at New England Reagent Laboratory and her latest employment, the Talbot Co. Health Department until her health forced her to retire in 2013.

Alice was known to rescue animals and fell in love with each and every one of them. She considered them her children and referred to them as her “fur babies”. She loved knitting and crocheting along with working with her plants and gardening. Alice had a great love for collecting recipes and creating wonderful meals, making their house a home. She was devoted and loved her Lord. Alice was a very compassionate person and everyone who knew her loved her. She will be truly missed.

She is survived by her devoted husband of 30 years, Joseph W. Tente; nieces, Randi Lowe (husband Mark) and Tiffani Abbott; nephew Charles K. Orem IV, and great nephew Colby Christopher Abbott.

Preceding her in death besides her parents is her brother Charles K. Orem III, her sister Dottie C. Abbott and a great niece Ciarra Raye Abbott.

I offer you my sincere condolences for the loss of your dear Alice. May you be comforted by Gods promise to swallow up death foreverand wipe away the tears from all faces (Isaiah 25:8). Along with the promise of a time soon when no resident will say I am sick (Isaiah 33:24). You may find more comforting scriptures and videos by visiting jw.org.

My dear wife and I would like to extend our belated condolences for the loss of your loved one. We send this condolence with the sure hope the Bible provides all of us at difficult times like this. As recorded in the Bible, God's only-begotten son, Jesus promises that one day he is personally going to bring back to life all those who have died (John 5:28, 29; 11:43, 44). As death is an enemy to us, it is also an enemy to Almighty God (1 Corinthians 15:26). For that reason, as well as others, He promises to remove from this earth FOREVER all the pain, suffering, wickedness, and DEATH that mankind has had to endure for thousands of years (Revelation 21:3-5; Psalm 37:10, 11, 29). What a glorious day that will surely be! It's a reality and a sure hope that we can trust in because it is absolutely impossible for God to lie (Titus 1:2). My wife and I sincerely encourage you to look up and meditate on these noted scriptures in your own Bible (1 Timothy 4:15, 16; 2 Timothy 3:16, 17). You will surely be encouraged and comforted by the marvelous hope our Grand Creator has in store for us (John 17:3). Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you.

Extending deepest sympathy to family and friends in this time of sorrow. Please find comfort in knowing that soon all those in God's memory will hear Jesus' voice and live again. (John 5:28,29) Until that blessed day, may Jehovah, the God of all comfort, grant you peace while many fond memories warm your heart.

A. Wingfield Feb 28 2018 12:00 AM

With heartfelt sympathy for the loss of your loved one. The Bible indicates that soon death will be no more (Rev. 21:4) and those who have died can live again. These are promises from God, who cannot lie (Titus 1:2). Please take comfort in this wonderful hope as you look forward to its grand fulfillment.
