Alice also had nine grandchildren and 13 great-grandchildren. She loved them all and never forgot a birthday.

Alice lived most of her life in South Bend, Ind., where she was very involved in Calvary Temple now called Southgate Church. She taught many children in those 40-plus years. She also sang in a trio with her sister, Jeanette and a dear friend. There were many things she enjoyed after being with family, gardening, canning, sewing and playing games. After her children were in school, she worked at Enro Shirt Co and Raco.

In 2000, Alice moved to Alabama to enjoy warmer weather and be closer to family. Alice always exemplified a life that loved Jesus and she will be missed greatly.
