Alice was a very committed Christian and an active member of First Baptist Church Bude. Over her lifetime she served on various committees in her church, was a Sunday School Teacher, sang in the choir, and for decades a leader of the Girls Auxiliary and Acteen groups. She was always praying for her family, her pastor, her church, and those without Christ. A firm believer in missions both foreign and domestic she had a calling from God to be a missionary. Everyone was welcome at her home. Her cooking skills came second to her vocation as a hairdresser for over 50 years. She loved her clients as her family. Alice was honored as Woman of the Year in Franklin County in 2012. All who knew her well called her “Mamma Alice”, a term she dearly loved.
