Alice Bonds Agnew McMillan, 89, was born on November 23, 1930 to Myrtle and Charles Agnew. She was the baby of 3 daughters and was raised on a farm in Guntown, Miss. Her mother an incredible seamstress, made her the most beautiful clothes and her father a farmer, taught her how to work diligently.
She married her beloved husband, Bob, when she was 18, and spent the best years of her life by his side. Together, they had a family with 4 precious children that never allowed any day to be boring or quiet. Her most favorite roles in life were being wife, momma to her children, and grandmommie to her grandchildren.
Alice co-owned McMillan Funeral Home with her beloved Bob. They worked together for many years and took great pride in serving members of their community through their business. They would both say how it was a blessing to be there with other’s loved ones as they transitioned from earth to Heaven. Alice was very active in her community. She was a member of the Booneville Women’s Club as well as a faithful member of Booneville First United Methodist Church. Her hobbies included being with her family and cooking for them. She loved to ride horses and spent most of her free time at Walking horse shows with family or traveling in her RV. She also enjoyed spoiling her grandchildren and lit up with every new great-grandchild she held.
Alice was greeted joyfully by her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, at Heaven's Gates on November 19, 2020. She imparted wisdom into the lives of anyone who asked and even to those who did not. A very strong woman, she understood that the deepest, truest demonstration of love was to offer guidance, support, and loyalty to those whom she loved. Her words of wisdom and kindness will forever be in our hearts and minds. She will forever be cherished and revered as the matriarch of our family.

Ms Alice was a special person and I am a better person to have been able to know her and go to church with her at Booneville First United Methodist Church. She would not hesitate to tell me what was on her mind! At church on occasion, she would ask me if I have seen my Uncle Jack Presley lately. It was her way of telling me that I need to go visit him. I loved her openness and directness. She didn't sugar coat anything with me. I miss her dearly. She was a beautiful person!
