Deepest sympathy to the family of Alice Emanuel. I am a member of the United Methodist Church in Shell Lake and dearly loved Alice. I worked with her on our church rummage sales for several years and she was always so great to work with. Always had a smile on her face, never complained about the hard work or anything else, and worked like crazy.
My special memory of her was just a few weeks ago when I stopped by the church for the second day in a row. The first day I had noticed her weeding the flower garden in front of the church. The second day she was doing the same and I stopped to visit for a second and to compliment her on how great things were looking and thank her for her hard work. She just smiled, nodded and went back to work. What a special person she was – nothing showy but always a friendly, helpful giver to others. Know that she will be missed here in Shell Lake.
