Alice was a life-long homemaker and enjoyed cooking for all her family. She was a devoted "Auntie Alice" to many of her nieces and nephews during their childhood years. Always a lively and happy person, she was noted for her dazzling smile and dimples. We will have fond memories of the parties held for all and any occasions at her and my father's house.
