She was raised in New Harmony and lived on Evansville’s west side for forty-one and a half years with her husband, Steve.

Together they built a life to be proud of, especially their son Neil and daughter-in-law, “Katie Sue”. Alice enjoyed painting ceramics, gardening, canning, cooking and baking. She loved animals, especially her dog, Dixie, her kitty cats and all of the cattle they raised through the years. You could always find Alice mowing the grass, spraying weeds and taking care of her flowers and plants. She and her family also enjoyed collecting antiques and tractors. She worked hard to keep Steve and Neil in line. Though Alice faced many health issues over the last years, she remained positive and strong in her faith.
