Alicia Hartsock

July 8, 1925 — April 5, 2024

Indianapolis

Alicia Guerrero was born on July 8, 1925, in Brooklyn, New York, to Felicita Otero Guerrero and Alfredo Guerrero. At three years old, she, along with her mother and her older brother, Francisco Javier Guerrero, moved to San Juan, Puerto Rico, to live with her maternal aunt and uncle, Leonardo Otero and Juan Antonio Moran. She was raised in Puerto Rico.

Upon graduating from high school, Alicia began working to the U. S. Naval base on Vieques during WWII. At age eighteen she was the head stenographer for the case. Soon she was also charged with maintaining pilot’s flight logs.

At the end of WWII, she was invited to move to Indiana by family friends. In Indianapolis she lived in a women’s boarding house as was common among young working women at that time. Through friends there she met Robert Edgar Hartsock, after his discharge from the U. S. Coast Guard. The couple married in 1951 and were married until Robert’s death in August of 2021. They were the parents of three children. She was a very faithful and loving wife and mother who devoted her life to the care and well-being of her family.

Alicia unfortunately developed vascular dementia and blindness due to glaucoma in her early 80’s. Her condition progressed slowly until she was no longer to live safely at home. The last seven years of her life she lived with her caretaker, Jacquie Brown, who looked after her with great kindness and an unmatched level of care. The family is very grateful to Jacquie for her treatment of Alicia – she was a blessing.

At the time of her death Alicia was the mother of two remaining children, three grandchildren, and twelve great-grandchildren. All who knew her were touched by her loving nature, her faithfulness, and her beautiful soul.

She took her light with her when she left us on April 5th. The family believes she still shines on them from heaven, showing all of us the way home.
