When I was eight years old my Grandfather and I came to visit Joe and Marie, Bill was in the driveway and he stopped to talk to Pap. Alice came down the hill and was headed to Joe and Marie's house and as she passed us she spoke to Pap and I. After she left Pap turned to Bill and said, " You got a good girl there Bill." Bill replied, " One in a million Ed, one in a million." I remember that day like it was yesterday. Two men that I adored both adored and respected that woman. I always watched her as a child because she was different than anyone I knew and I loved that about her, but that day I came to see her differently. I saw how unique and special she was through their eyes and it was a pivotal moment. I am a better wife, a better mother, a better cook and so many other things that I would not have been if I had never met Alice. She was a part of my childhood I treasure. That time is gone and now all those that cemented that time as an era are gone, but I will remember those halcyon days and Alice and Bill and all the others all of this life and those memories will carry me to the next. May the wings of angels carry her home, and may they come to know the glory of her butterscotch pie!

Alice was a sweet, special woman. Some of my favorite memories are of working with her in the Claughton kitchen. She, along with Marge Walls, Marian Kughn and Margaret Lemley, kept order there on very busy days. They all sure taught me a lot. I’ll save that piece of pie in her memory for after the perfect mashed potatoes! Love to all the family!
