Alice Margaret Ashworth Obituary

Alice Margaret Ashworth, age 81, of Franklin, TN, passed away on September 4, 2017.

Born to Marvin & Lois Williamson in Durant, Oklahoma, during the Dust Bowl, Alice's family moved west to California when she was 3 years old.

She graduated from Yuba City Union High School in 1953 and earned her Associate's Degree from Yuba College in 1955. She married Calvin Willard "Bill" Ashworth on June 30, 1955. Other than seven months of Bill's Air Force service in Wyoming when they first married, Alice lived in Yuba City, California, for 74 years, until moving to the Nashville area in 2013 to be close to her children.

A lover of God, people, and words, Alice was involved in the Christian Women's Club, Soroptimists, Bible studies, Pink Lady hospital volunteering, and Del Prado Mobile Home Park activities, and enjoyed reading, crossword puzzles, gardening, needlepoint and writing poetry.

In heaven she is reunited with her beloved parents and husband of 37 years.
