Alice was my smart, kind, thoughtful, talented, wonderful and very special friend. I will miss her all the rest of my days.
Memories of our college years, vacations, weddings, and visits fill my heart with joy for our time spent together. Then there is the sadness in knowing our lengthy phone calls that kept us connected across the miles and through the years have come to a sudden end.
God Bless Tom, Gregor, Jason and Bryan and help them through their sorrow.
I love you Alice.
Always and Forever.

Even though I had only meet Professor Duskiewicz for one day at D'Youville, her spirit and personality immediately touched my soul. I would have loved to have spent the rest of the semester with her. We really connected through our mutual understanding of being female military veterans. My deepest condolences are prayers go out to her family for losing such an amazing women. The D'Youville college community deeply feels the loss and her students will not be the same without her.

I can't tell you how sorry I was to hear of Alice's passing. I would talk to her between lab classes and on our Zoom calls. She was a wonderful colleague, nurse, teacher and friend. I will miss her very much. The Duskiewicz family are very much in my thoughts and prayers.
