Strong in her faith, Alice was active in her church work, singing in the choir, WMU, and teaching Sunday School classes. Alice was a true servant leader. She was a committed believer in the Lord Jesus Christ and took solace in the greatness of God. One of her favorite texts in Scripture was Psalm 103.
She loved to entertain and her home was always a place anyone would feel comfortable and welcomed. Alice would whip together a delicious meal and always had room for another person or two at the table. Bill and Alice had many adventures during their lifetime and she supported Bill’s business ventures all while raising her family. She was a high energy person and always loved to be “on the go”.
In January 1962, Calcasieu parish had temperatures below freezing for 70 hours. The rice canals froze hard enough for Alice to go ice skating. This was such an unusual weather event that Paul Harvey mentioned Alice and her canal ice skating on his news broadcast.
The family would like to thank Jeff Johnson and all the caregivers at The Woodlands in Leesville, Louisiana for providing the best care of Alice for the past 2 years.
There will be a graveside service held at Magnolia Cemetery in Westlake, Louisiana Saturday, January 2, 2021 at 10:00 am. Under the direction of Miguez Funeral Home.
