I've lived next door to Alene my entire life. One could not ask for a better neighbor and friend. Always caring, empathetic, willing to share a laugh or a tear. I enjoyed the many conversations with Alene while hanging over our backyard fences. I'll miss swapping books with her as we had the same taste for a good read. Actually, there are so many things I'll miss about her but at least I have all the good memories from a lifetime in the neighborhood.

Alene, enjoy your place in heaven. You'll always be in my heart.

Love from Linda and Carl Raney

Ursch Family,
I am so very sorry you have lost your Mother, Grandma, and Great Grandma.
I did not see Alene that often, but when I did she talked to me as though we were picking up a conversation from just yesterday. She was so friendly and nice.
I guess all of you Ursch(s) are that way.
Lots of love and prayers 💞 ,
Bonnie Hutton
