Alice L. Hafsahl
Our beloved mother Alice Hafsahl entered Heaven peacefully on Friday, August 7, 2015, with her daughter Lynn Beck at her side. Alice was 88 years old. She was born June 18, 1927, in Dunseith, North Dakota. Alice spent the last seven years of her life at Cascade Valley Senior Living Memory Care in Arlington, Wash. where she was tenderly cared for by their wonderful staff. She was loved by so many. Alice always had a smile on her face, was an excellent listener and willing to help and provide comfort. She loved to be outside, especially in the sunshine, enjoyed gardening, fishing and RV traveling with her husband and close friends. Her children Gary and Lynn Beck were blessed to have such a dedicated and loving Mom. She was preceded in death by her husband, Harold (Hal). In lieu of flowers, please bring stories to give to the family as keepsakes. Mom, you were my best friend and you will be so missed more than words can express. We love you and will keep you in our hearts forever. A Celebration of Life for Alice will be held Saturday, August 22, 2015 at 2 p.m. at the Sons of Norway Hall, located at 9910 270th Street NW, Stanwood, WA 98292.

We remember Alice as always smiling and happy. She loved to work in the yard and be outside. Her knowledge of plants was outstanding. She was so pleased to be living with Lynn & Harold on Lake Goodwin. We loved having her there, also.
One great woman!

Alice was a terrific lady. She was a kind and fun person, with a great sense of humor. Larry and I had fun times with them as she and Hal were always gracious hosts . My sympathy to Lynn and Gary, may they find some comfort with the good memories.

I recall Alice's last visit to North Dakota. What a delightful time of laughter,music, telling stories and enjoying a potluck meal together with her siblings; Alice with her soft gentle, easygoing smile. God Bless cousin Alice.

I wanted to light this candle in special memory of this very loving Mother to my very special friend Lynn Beck. Although I didn't know Alice well I certainly remember many stories Lynn graciously shared with me. I can't think of anything better than knowing you were raised so lovingly and in the end you got the time to give it back to your Mom. My thoughts and prayers are with you now that you will happily remember this special lady you called Mom. Love you dear friend, Linda Huber
