Alice was an avid gardner and loved planting whatever looked beautiful to her at the time, her garden changing year after year but always looking beautiful. Shopping for things like clothes, furniture and blankets was a favorite pastime for her. Alice enjoyed collecting McCoy cookie jars, Franklin Mint plates, Depression glass and antiques.

To those who knew her, Alice will be best remembered as a loving and caring woman who wasn't afraid to speak her mind or stand her ground.
