Alice loved to play cards, bake, attend the men's Hawkeye basketball games watch the Chicago Cubs play, see Charlie Pride perform, go see shows in Branson, Missouri and spend time with her family.
She especially liked attending all of her grandkids sporting events and programs. She lived for her family and will be greatly missed. She was a loving wife, mother and grandmother. During Alice's final days she was able to attend two Iowa Hawkeye men's basketball games (NIT tournament). While at the first game she was interviewed by Gabe Erickson of CBS 2 and Fox 28 news. Then Jerry Strom, the mens basketball director, invited Alice and her family to attend the second home game where they took her into the locker room to honor her before the game and presented her with a signed basketball, each player gave her a hug. She also had a nice long visit with Jerry Strom, Gary Barta and Coach Fran McCaffery. She was smiling from ear to ear. She enjoyed every minute of it. A special thank you goes out to the University of Iowa men's basketball program. Alice was a long time season ticket holder and rarely missed a game until she got sick.
