My condolences to the Alio family. I just saw this notice. She was such a kind woman, and her home was always a warm and happy place to visit with all the countertops filled with goodies. My mom, who passed in 2010, was active with St. Anthony's and St. Alphonsus, and always said she made the best cinnamon buns! I hope you find some peace while grieving. I know it took me a long time. We are never ready to lose someone we love so much. God bless. Judy Birchler

My deepest condolences to the entire Alio family for their loss of Mrs. Alio. I was blessed back in the mid 60’s to have met Mr. and Mrs. Alio and the entire family. It was a pleasure being a part of this loving family as a young girl. You can feel and see the love they all had for one another. The few weeks my sister and stayed with them at Seaside helping in the bakery where the most wonderful memories that I will cherish for the rest of my life. She is now in the arms of her beloved husband and her loving son, Frank. RIP all of you for you all are in the hearts and memories of so many people. In loving memory, Joan (Maxwell) Kuebler, Woodstock, GA
