It is hard to believe that a little over a year has passed since our dedicated team member, Ilze Black, passed away. In July of 2020, Alpha Metal Finishing lost a beloved and hard-working employee after her long battle with cancer.
Ilze Black worked as a production specialist at Alpha for more than 27 years and was one of our longest-standing employees. Her dedication to her job and to the Alpha team reinforced the values and family environment we’ve always cultivated for our employees, who are the backbone of our company. Ilze did everything with excellence.
Born in Germany, Ilze spent most of her life in Ann Arbor, MI, and left behind a loving family. Ilze brought joy to the people around her. She is remembered for not only her hard work and contributions at Alpha, but her creative and festive decorations at Christmas and other holidays. Her presence at Alpha is sadly missed, but she remains in our hearts with cherished memories.
