PLAINVILLE – Allie “Pete” McAlpine, 99, passed peacefully surrounded by her family and friends at Milford Center on Saturday, November 20, 2021.

She was the wife of the late Donald McAlpine.

Born June 1, 1922 in Cape Chaffee, Missouri, she was a daughter of the late Leslie and Philomena Lankford.

She is survived by her son, Bruce McAlpine and his partner Cindi Burns; two granddaughters: Lori Bush and Katherine “Katie” Brogan and her husband, Erik; two grandsons Cameron Bush and James “L.J.” Grzesiak and one great great-grandson, Bennett Bush.

Pete loved being outside with her family, having cookouts and drinking her little glass of beer.  Her family was her greatest joy and she will be greatly missed.  We love you Nana.

To have been such a little tiny person could barely see over the steering wheel of her car she was a force to be reckoned with.  She has made a big imprint on this earth. 

Services are pending.

  • Just learning of Pete’s.  How ironic she and my mom passed a week apart. If they meet up in heaven at those pearly gates there are sure to be some laughing.   Pete had the best laugh and for such a petite woman, she was taller than life.  Plainville will always remember Pete and Don.   May they rest in peace. 

  • My condolences on the loss of Pete! She was such a force of nature, it just seemed she would go on forever! Her loss is a loss to all our family! God Bless .

  • Pete was a firecracker. I’m sorry to hear of her passing. she was such a nice person. Her and Don both great! my dog Ebony wore a path between our houses going to visit Don and Pete and often would spend the night or get her second dinner!
    they were awesome people.
    Our condolences to Bruce and family.

  • I have known Pete and her family my whole life. Pete and Don were friends of my parents and somewhere I have a movie of Bruce playing football with me when I was little. I’m so sorry for your loss. eye was a real spitfire and she will be missed.
