Aunt Alice's "Hello" was a distinctively musical one. A gift by itself. She loved following her Packers and her Brewers even when radio was her only option.
We took my mother to visit Alice at her house and were witness to their non stop gigles while sharing family memories all afternoon.
Phone visits always included many and varied topics. Despite the severe challenges brought by the pandemic, Alice seemed to find humor to share with others. What a gift !
Aunt Alice often sent extensive notes written on both sides of snipits of paper. Always a delight to receive. I'd like to be more like her. Much Love.

As I put away my Christmas cards I recalled Aunt Alice's telling me about her cards. She used them for her morning prayers. She would take the top card and think of that person during her prayer. She was always present in our family life. What a wonderful role model to point to in todays world.

I will really miss our phone conversations and her friendship. Alice was always so upbeat and interested in knowing what was going on. She had such a positive way about her. Alice would tell me that a phone call was just as good as a visit. I will miss a long-time friend, and send my sympathy to all of her family.

Any time we visited Wisconsin my Mother Joanne would insist we visited Aunt Alice, she was always full of energy and made us kids feel right at home. Aunt Alice will truly be missed.

Our Aunt Alice had a beautiful smile-and that smile reflected her personality as well. A loving, always positive person, I grew up admiring her love of teaching and the thoughtful care she extended to her family and friends alike.
I remain in awe of the outlook she maintained even when her active lifestyle as a volunteer and substitute teacher was no longer possible.
A beautiful role model for all who were privileged to know her.
With love,

I always enjoyed Alice's company for card games, band concerts, etc when she was a neighbor to my Mom, Mildred Jensen. I enjoyed visiting her either in person but mostly on the phone these past few years. She was so proud of her family. Sincere Sympathy to the whole family.

Growing up, Aunt Alice was a constant presence in our family. She always had Christmas gifts for the 7 of us. When I was a senior in high school, she spent time to take me on tours of various nursing schools and gave me sound advice on how to chose. She & my mother, her sister, had an especially close relationship.
