I had the pleasure of meeting Alice a couple years ago while visiting my Grandpa and her in Vegas. I was only there for a few days but she was definitely a highlight of the trip. She was so funny and knew how to light up a room and have fun! She treated my mom and me like family from the beginning and I’m really glad I had the chance to meet her and have a model of who I want to be like when I grow old. Rest in Power Alice!

She was a wonderful lady who enjoyed life. Praying for the family at their loss but oh what a happy day it was in Heaven when she saw so many people she dearly loved. I can almost hear that sweet laugh of hers now. Love all of you dearly.

She was my friend and my great grandma and she had a special way of making everyone she met feeling loved. I remember her going to her favorite restaurant and all of the workers knew her and called her Grandma. They would sit and talk with us like we were old friends. She had a way with people that made her so approachable, she would also give sound advice. Sometimes it would cut you to the core but she would say it knowing it was for your best. I'm going to miss her terribly. From holding her hand, listening her talk about her home in Kentucky, eating watermelon in on the curb, and late night conversations in the front yard. She loved those around her with the unconditional love of Jesus and I'm inspired by her to love those around me the same. And I will until He calls me home and I can hold His hand hers.

I love you Grammy always and forever. You are in a place were there is no more sorrow and pain. And I will be there soon too.

So sorry for the lost of your mother, grandmother and friend.
I just wanted to share a memory with the family about the time we came to Vegas.
My sister Pat, my wife Linda, our daughter Laura and her husband Tim flew to Vegas and Aunt Alice was going to pick us up at the airport. First of all we missed our flight in Louisville and had to call Aunt Alice and tell her about the new arrangements and arrival time.
She met us at the airport and the car was loaded down with luggage and people. We all had a great time meeting Alice and we talked and laughed on the way to the hotel.
Later she showed us around the town and the different places that she had worked. We had a great time visiting with her and we will always cherish the time that we had with her.
She is in heaven now and with family and friends.
Everyone will miss her dearly.

She truly was the best of us.
How else do I say it? She would do anything for you, but wouldn't get taken advantage of.
She was kind yet she was firm.
And man was she a hoot. We would laugh for hours about nonsense. She was very liberal with her ideas, yet maintained a strong Christian core. She loved God. She loved family. She loved her work.
And she truly loved people, her people.
She had a life of servitude, yet she found happiness in it.
I will miss her like noone else.
