On September 4, 1992, Alice was ready as her friend death came and made possible her final meeting with God. Alice was born March 9, 1921 to the late Kate Jones Stokes and Bouldin Stokes in South Boston, Virginia. She was a dedicated life-long member of Ebenezer Christian Methodist Episcopal Church. She served on the Trustee Board and was a devoted member of the senior choir. She was also a charter member of the "Old Ship." Alice was educated in the public schools of South Boston. On March 21,1942, she was married to Joseph Oscar Garland. They were blessed with one son, George Lee. Both preceded her in death. Volunteer work was Alice's mission. She served the community and especially, Woodview Nursing Home with her humanitarian services. In 1990, she received the Volunteer Service Award from The Woodview. Alice was truly a dedicated family person. She was a loving sister and an extraordinary aunt. Sharing the memory of Alice with love and deep devotion are: one sister, Mrs. Eva Cunningham; one brother, Mr. James Stokes, one nephew, Raymond Williams; three nieces, Juanita Williams; Chenita Ford; and Eva Mae Gravely; a mother-in-law, Mrs. Florine Garland; two sisters-in-law, Mrs. Virginia Jones, and Mrs. Roxie Stokes; one niece-in-law, one nephew-in-law and one great nephew-in-law; cousins, other relatives and friends.
