Alice enjoyed many things, including square dancing, caring for her home, both inside and out, gardening, traveling and watching hummingbirds. She enjoyed the many trips spent with family and friends going to the Gambling Boats in Clinton, Dubuque, and Elgin. Most recently, she enjoyed watching the Food Network. Her pet poodle Sammy, had been her companion after the loss of her husband Orville.
