Alice Leone Bennett
1919 ~ 2004 Our precious and loving Aunt passed away on December 2, 2004 at the age of 85 in an area hospital. Alice was born in Schillbourne, Nevada to George Lawrence Bennett and Mary Etta Kell on April 28, 1919. Alice never married and always lived with her sister and brother-in-law, Vera Bennett and Pete Yano who have preceded her in death.
Alice was a driving force in the rearing of their children. After graduation from Jordan High School, she attended Stevens-Henager Business College. During World War II, Alice worked at a local ammunition plant making arms. After the war, she worked for Standard Oil of California as a bookkeeper. In 1956, Alice opened her own business, a café called the Malt Shop, located in the State Lanes Bowling Center. In 1971 the café was moved to the Sue-Rich Lanes. Alice retired at the age of 78 from work but not from life. To the very end she drove a car, lived in her own home, did her own shopping, visited family members, and loved to work in her garden. Aunt Alice was well loved by her family and will be deeply missed.
She is survived by her loving niece, Susanne Yano Hanson, Las Vegas, Nevada, her adoring nephew, Richard Yano, Salt Lake City, six grand nieces and nephews, and 14 great-grand nieces and nephews.
