Alice was always so good to us and our children. We have many great memories of her visits. She would drive grandma Thelma up to see us and visit her favorite bakeries in Wisconsin. Alice was so proud of her family. Bless you all.

I have so many fond memories of my Aunt Alice. Our families had great times at the farms, our place and the cottage at Turtle Lake. She had an easy smile and laugh.

I had many great memories of my Aunt Alice. Growing up I loved the over night stays at Turtle Lake and being with my cousins, she was a great hostess.

We are so sorry for your loss. We always enjoyed chatting with Grandma Alice at family birthday parties for Cassidy, Cayla and Ally. She was a lovely lady, and we're glad we had the opportunity to know her.
