    Alice would be leaving work at the same time I would be starting in the morning. We would have a good chuckle now and then, discussing copiers or the weather etc. When she was ill and out for a week, everyone missed her and asked about her health. She returned for a day and I asked her to never be sick again. She was needed there and she said everyone was saying nice things about her. We didn’t know each other very well but she hugged me and wished me a Merry Christmas. It was the last time I saw her but her lovely smile will always be in my remembrance of her.

    I worked very close to Alice for 28 years. I never heard her say anything negative about anyone. She was quiet but had a great sense of humor. She was so efficient in her work. I know Mora Schools will dearly miss her. I know
    I will miss the hugs she gave no matter where we were. RIP Alice.

    Sorry to hear of your mom’s passing Gary and Dan. Although we mourn her loss, she has gained that ultimate goal of forever being with Jesus. So many memories going all the way back to the Brunswick Grasston days. My first big birthday party outing was for your birthday Gary and can still remember how fun your mom made it. BBC Baptist Bible Club, all the flannel graph stories, Jackie the puppet and her vibrant personality. Great memories. Celebrate her life by remembering all the great times.
