Alice really did love her mother, despite how much her mother annoyed her. When Alice's kids were born, Alice truly came to grips with her mother's mortality. When particularly annoyed during conversations, Alice tried to pre-mourn her mother, trying to find the precious things she would look back on wistfully. This continued for many, many years, until Alice's teenagers started rolling their eyes.
