A beautiful lady; I would call her an earthly angel. Many were the times,our family would visit Sunday afternoons, especially, and “help” with the milking, making butter and cooking those biscuits. I loved all of them, then, and do now. My thoughts, prayers and condolences are with you.

She cared for and feed many a grand child. Providing lessons of life and setting good examples they could use for a life time. Powerful work ethic

Aunt Alice embodied the heritage of family love. She always smiled when she saw you and looked you straight in the eyes as you left and said, ” we love you..” I always knew that what she meant by “we” was family. It seemed important for her to remind you of those two things. Know you have a family. .and know that they love you. Aunt Alice may not have traveled the world but she knew what the world needed to hear. So to her and to all my sweet great aunts on the farm..know that we love you.

Aunt Alice will be truly missed. Her love of a funny joke, her cooking and desserts. I will always remember with love, waking up in the old house to Aunt Alice at that stove making all a biscuit or two, and shooing us away from the table till meal time. But now the heavens will be enjoying her till we all meet again. I love you Aunt Alice with all my heart!!
