Alice Kelly West DuTart SUMMERVILLE - Alice Kelly West DuTart, 49, opened her eyes in heaven the morning of June 6, 2021. Alice was born in Portsmouth, VA, on December 25, 1971, as the daughter of Edward and Gwen West. She was a 1989 graduate of Summerville High School and graduated Summa Cum Laude from Georgetown College (KY) with a double major in English and History. She is survived by her devoted husband of 27 years, Philip Pepper "Peppy" DuTart, III, and her children, Sarah (Zachary) DuTart Calhoun and Abigail DuTart. She is also survived by her loving sister, Julie (Fabio) West Torres; her nephews, Fabio Eduardo and Westley; and niece, Hailey Torres. Alice's heart for people extended from the classroom to the medical field to the church. Alice taught junior high students to love literature and writing at The Oaks Christian School for many years before changing careers to become a nurse (RN) for the vulnerable and seniors across the Lowcountry. Two of Alice's greatest joys were serving at the Lowcountry Pregnancy Center and ministering to the members of the special needs class at Crossroads Community Church. Alice also taught the Bible locally and abroad, traveling to Malta and the Dominican Republic to share the love of Christ. Alice will forever be remembered for her humility, her love for Christ, and her sensational sense of humor. "You yourselves are our letter, written on our hearts, known and read by everyone" (2 Cor. 3:2). A memorial service for Alice is planned for Saturday, June 19th, at 3:00 PM at Crossroads Community Church. In lieu of flowers, memorials can be made to the Lowcountry Pregnancy Center: lowcountrypregnancycenter.com
