Alice Lee (Brown) Miranda

May 1, 1949 ~ April 29, 2022 (age 72)


Alice Lee Miranda, 72, entered the spirit world on April 29, 2022 at her home in Cherry Valley, California. She danced her way to heaven to be reunited with her only son, Glenn Morin.

Alice was born on May 1, 1949 in Staten Island, New York to Everett "Jake" Brown and Violet "Scotty" Brown. The family moved to Villa Park, California in the 1950's. Alice was a lifelong learner and had a passion for education - she graduated from Rancho Alamitos High School in 1967, attended Mt. San Jacinto College, and graduated with a Bachelor's of Arts in Human Development from Azusa Pacific University in 2002. Alice spent many years in the education field and was affectionately known to many as "Teacher Alice" while she was a Headstart teacher. She was so proud of all of her students and kept in touch with many.

Alice met the love of her life, Leroy Miranda, while working at the Morongo Bingo in 1984. Alice's dearly departed friend Kathy Carlson convinced Alice to go on "just one date" with Leroy and they've been inseparable ever since. Alice and Leroy married on April 5, 1986 at the Oak Glen Schoolhouse and their daughter Loretta Miranda was born shortly after. Alice came into Leroy's life with a ready-made family with her children Glenn Morin and Brandy Miranda, who Leroy raised as his own.

Alice loved music, especially classic rock, and constantly heard music in her head. Alice was a proud member of the Elks Lodge. She enjoyed playing bunco, bingo, and gambling at the casino with her dear friends Susan Wheeler and Evalinda Troutman. Alice was also an amazing artist and especially liked creating art with gourds - she often created handcrafted gifts for all of her friends and family. Alice also loved cats and her best friend Moose misses her dearly.

Alice was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, daughter, sister, auntie, cousin, friend, and teacher. She was most proud of being grandma and loved the chaos of a home filled with her grandkids.

She was preceded in death by her parents Everett "Jake" Brown and Violet "Scotty" Brown of Santa Maria; Son Glenn Morin of Yucaipa; Brother in-laws Antonio "Motz" Miranda and Ralph "Odie" Miranda of Morongo; and Sister in-law Lavon Miranda Leimas of Morongo.

Alice is survived by her husband Leroy Miranda of Morongo; daughters Brandy Miranda and Loretta Miranda of Morongo; Sisters Tracy Stewart of Folsom and Judy Hewitt of Perris; Sister in-law Antonette "Corn" Miranda of Morongo; Brother in-laws Joe Miranda and Paul Miranda of Morongo; Granddaughters Destiny Wells, Jazlyn Wells, and Alicia Wells of Hemet and Aurelia-LeRay Mares of Banning; Grandsons Isaiah Wells of Cherry Valley, Jacob Wells of Hemet, and Daniel Mares of Banning; Great-Grandsons Gabriel Miranda, Julian Estrada, and Emiliano Estrada of Hemet; many nieces and nephews; and many friends.
