I knew Alice working thru Precious Moments Bridal Shop and came to Her, Just for Fashion, business over and over again. She always was up to any challenge I would engage Her in. Always with a smile She served and I knew how much She gave to Her beloved family without saying one word. So sorry for your loss and I'm sure She is smiling and serving from upon. May God's comfort surround you all with great memories.

Grandma was an amazing woman. Strong, stubborn, resilient, compassionate, and full of love. She met me with open arms and treated me as a surrogate grandchild. She always made me laugh. When I had a bad day or pregnancy hormones got the best of me, she knew what to say to make me smile. She worked hard on a custom cradle set for my baby girl and made me some maternity clothes with her left over fabrics. I will always cherish those memories with her as they remain some of my favorites. She will be missed greatly by all those she touched.

We didn't know Alice for very long. But when we visited Dorothy ( her room mate at the nursing home) She was so sweet, loving and kind. Our grand kids loved to visit her. She will be greatly missed. You are in our thoughts and prayers. Love Chuck ,Regena and Dorothy Garnett
