It is with deep sorrow that we announce the passing of Alice Marie Aguilera “Tia” on January 10, 2023. Born in Omaha, Nebraska, on June 4, 1952. Alice passed away peacefully in Las Vegas, Nevada with family by her side. She was preceded in death by her mother, Antonia Aguilera; father, Mario Aguilera Sr; and grandparents, Rosalio and Paz Aguilera, Ignacio and Suzanna Reyes.

Alice was a devoted sister, “Tia” and friend. She is survived by her sister, Anna Lucero-Condrey (Micheal); niece, Antonia Lucero, nephew, Geno Lucero; grandnephew, RJ Lucero; grandniece, Adrianna Krueger; many other relatives and dear friends. She cherished the time spent with her family and friends and treasured all the relationships in her life.

After Alice graduated from Omaha South High School in 1970, she went on to work for the Omaha Police Department, retiring after forty eight years of service.

Alice was known for her selflessness and her ability to always put others before herself, especially her family, extended family at the Omaha Police Department and Special Olympics.

Alice volunteered her time and efforts at the Special Olympics for over twenty five years. Without a doubt, these were her favorite times.

She will be forever remembered and deeply missed by all who knew her. Her memories will live on in the hearts of her loved ones.

    Anna, Geno, and family –
    I am so sorry for your loss. I know how much Tia meant to you and how much love she poured into your lives and the lives of so many others. She was truly a servant of our loving God, and no doubt, holds a very special place of honor in heaven. I feel blessed for the brief time I was able to spend with her, and know that her loving spirit, compassion, and generosity has been passed on through her family and those whose lives she touched.

    My deepest sympathies to the family and friends of Alice. My heart weeps with yours. I had the privilege and joy of working with Alice at OPD. She was welcoming, loving, professional, and funny. She had the ability to make everyone feel special. I had the opportunity to run into her again almost 25 years later and her warmth and smile made it seem like no time had passed. I thought of her often and reading this news today made my heart sad. Alice, you were a blessing to countless people and now you can rest in peace and sing with the angels in heaven.

    Alice –

    I first met you when you volunteered at La Festa Italiana at Peony Park. I shall always remember your willingness to help others, your kindness, your funny stories and of course, all of the laughter. Later on, I had contact with you through my employment with the City of Omaha. You graced the lives of countless people. God Bless and be with family and friends during this most difficult time. Alice will be truly missed by all that had the pleasure of knowing her.

    In Christian Love and Deepest Sympathy,

    Alice was the best! We had much fun together back in the old Organized Crime days. She never said no, and I could always count on her to help with anything that was needed. Her car was easy to spot with the JUST ME plates. Alice will be missed. Heaven is gaining a joyous spirit!

    It seems so strange that after all the years of knowing you that you’re not here now. I know that you are watching over your family and friends-as you always have.
    I met you back in 1995 when I was working elsewhere. You were a constant help with any and all questions I had. The I got hired on and in 2003 you introduced me to the Special Olympics. One of the greatest parts of my life that I was involved with for 19 years. You were always there as my friend – better than family because you chose to love and accept me and my family..
    Ms. Alice you are going to be greatly missed!! Love ya.

  • Bill and Sharon Kingston Posted January 21, 2023 8:24 am

    My dear friend from the “old days” at OPD. You were such fun and the most kind and giving person I had the privilege to have known. You will be greatly missed, but I know you are in a beautiful place with your family.

  • Carole Safley Posted January 23, 2023 9:06 am
