Alice and Bob enjoyed 43 years raising and showing Alaskan Malamutes where they met many lifelong friends. Mom loved to crochet and made many doilies, lap blankets and afghans. A lot of seniors got to enjoy the lap blankets. Our mother was loved by all. She had many stories (all true) and a wonderful sense of humor. A special thanks to Lorry for the attention she gave our Mom as a friend as well as a caregiver. The family would like to thank Willow Point Nursing Home (South I Rehab) for the wonderful care she received. (They became her extended family.)
Funeral services will be held in the spring. Anyone wishing to make a contribution in Alice’s name can do so to the Willow Point Nursing Home – South I Rehab.
