Born September 22, 1924 in Vandergrift, PA, she was the daughter of the late Nicholas and Mary (Bruno) Notarnicola from Noci, Province of Bari, Italy.
She was a member of Christ The King Parish in Gilpin Township. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband, Merle S. Lookabaugh, Sr., who passed away on June 15, 2006; brothers, Vito and Donald Notarnicola; sisters, Annie Corsi and Angeline Simon.

Alice enjoyed sports of all kinds. She was an avid Spectator at many Leechburg sporting events, enjoyed watching the Steelers, Pirates and golf, especially Tiger Woods. She also enjoyed playing the daily number and instant scratch-offs, gambling at casinos, and was part of a bowling league for over 40 years. You would see her working in her meticulous yard or walking up and down the hill during any kind of weather.
