Alice Lucile Fryer, 63, a retired stock control assembler in the postage stamp section of the Bureau of Engraving and Printing, died of cancer Wednesday at her Washington home.
Mrs. Fryer joined the bureau about 1942 as an examiner and retired last year for medical reasons. During her 36 yeasrs of government service, she received a number of outstanding work performance awards.
She was born in Edgefield, S.C., and came here with her family in 1925. She graduated from Cardozo High School.
She was a member of the Price-Anderson Auxiliary of the Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 341, and attended the First Seventh-day Adventist Church in Washington.
Her husband, Thomas J. Fryer, died about 1954.
Survivors include three sons, Thomas Jr., of the home, Cecil B., of Suitland, and Lawrence O., of Fort Washington; two daughters, Ora L. Parker, and Thomasine F. Owens, both of Washington, three brothers, Mack Allen, of Oxon Hill and John and Fred Allen, both of Washington; three sisters, Hilda Jackson, of Landover, Elizabeth Taylor, of West Covina, Calif., and Jean Gillis, of Washington; 16 grandchildren and three great-grandchildren.
The family suggests that expressions of sympathy be in the form of contributions to the American Cancer Society.
