Alice Worthington Allred was a native of Utah's Tooele Valley. She was born in Grantsville, August 17, 1908, to Stephen Hampton (Hamp) and Annie Josephine (Mollie) Johnson Worthington. The family home on Clark Street where she was born, built by her grandfather Charles Johnson, was on the route of the Donner Party.
She grew up in Grantsville and worked in the Deseret Mercantile operated by her Johnson family. Later she worked at the Grantsville Post Office where she met her future husband, Berten Wendell (Bill) Allred from Moab. She graduated from Grantsville High School in 1927.
She married B. W. Allred on September 10, 1930, in the Salt Lake LDS Temple. They moved to Logan where Bill completed a master's degree at Utah Agricultural College now Utah State University. Because of the Great Depression, Bill could not find employment in Utah. He was hired as a county agent in Colorado. They lived six years in Colorado in the towns of Pueblo, Walsenburg and then Colorado Springs. In Colorado Springs, Bill joined the recently formed Soil Conservation Service. In addition to Logan and Colorado, Alice and Bill lived in Rapid City, South Dakota; Lincoln, Nebraska; Fort Worth, Texas; a farm near Venus, Texas; Washington, D. C.; Riydah, Saudi Arabia; Buenos Aires and Bahia Blanca, Argentina; a farm near Oldtown, Maryland, and finally retirement in Tooele.
When the Allreds moved to Fort Worth, a small LDS Branch met in a tiny frame building near the Fort Worth Stockyards. It was then a working Stockyards rather than today's trendy tourist place. The members of the branch had a building fund, and Alice Allred, worked to raise funds with all of the branch members for a new chapel. She served as the Relief Society Work Counselor, later changed to Homemaking Counselor. After many years of fund raising, the new chapel was finally dedicated in December of 1952.
When her husband retired as Head Range Conservationist at the Soil Conservation Service, Washington, D.C., he took two assignments with the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations. She moved with him to Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, for two years. They spent one year in Argentina with the FAO before retiring to their Maryland farm. In the spring of 1972, they moved to Tooele. She became involved with LDS Church activities and the senior citizens center. After her husband's death, December 14, 1976, she continued to live in the Tooele home she loved so much until February 1994, when she moved to the Tooele Valley Nursing Home. She died there June 24, 2001.
She was survived by a daughter, Alice Allred Pottmyer, Arlington, Virginia; a brother, Max Hampton Worthington, Salt Lake City; four grandchildren: Laura Marie Pottmyer, Stephen Geoffrey Pottmyer, Shaun David Halladay and Lisa Ann Halladay. Her daughter, Doris Allred Halladay, died in 1995. Her three sisters, Anona Shibley, Tooele; Melba Bruce, Henderson, Tennessee; and Donna Weyland, Tooele, and a grandson, William Frank Pottmyer, predeceased her.
