Cresson - Alice Irene Mercer Karr went Home to the Lord on Sunday, May 17th, 2020.

Alice was born in Laredo on April 21, 1935. She married Don E. Karr on June 16, 1956 and followed Don, and the Army, for twenty-six years. They retired to Bandera, TX and eventually Harlingen, TX.

Alice was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, and friend. She loved sharing her love for travel with her family. She was a dedicated member of MOAA for twenty years and worked tirelessly to help Service members maintain their benefits. With the Granbury, TX chapter, she was a strong supporter of the Field of Flags program and enjoyed the camaraderie of the MOAA members and community.

A great lady who left a big impression on my life. I am saddened by her passing. Love to Donna, Linda and to the rest of my family.

Aunt Alice had a fiery spirit and wasn't afraid to show it! Conversations were fun and engaging and family gatherings always lively. She was a loving wife and mother and the epitome of a military wife/supporter. She has been called a "servant warrior" for her endless support of military families and veterans. Praise God that she is now reunited with her loving husband, and no doubt she continues to be an advocate for soldiers and their families. May she find peace in the arms of our heavenly Father.
All our love and prayers,
Danette, Rachel and Sarah Z.

What a great SPUNKY lady. Mrs. Carr will never be forgotten by my wife Alice and me. Great memories of the time we spent on the Javelina Alumni Association Board of Trustees where you could always depend on her to express her opinion. Did I mention she was SPUNKY!! You are gone from this earth but you will always be in our hearts. RIP Mrs. Carr. Condolences and prayers to all of the family.
