Alice was born Sept. 7, 1932, in Rossville to Alexander and Martha Hilburn. Ms. Jamison was a descendent of the 17 original Canary Island families who settled into the San Antonio area in 1731. As a reward for settling the New World, the King of Spain honored them with the title of Hidalgo (of nobility), which was to be passed down into perpetuity; further entitling Ms. Jamison as a true "Yellow Rose" of Texas. She worked as a supervisor in the restaurant industry and was a member of Trinity Fellowship Church.
She was preceded in death by five brothers, Roland Rene Hilburn, Lewis Hilburn, Raymond Hilburn, Eugene Hilburn and Charles Hilburn; two daughters, Mary Alice Duran and Joyce Elaine Briones; and a son, Robert Wayne Briones.
Survivors include four daughters, Cynthia Brehm of San Antonio, Donna Hutsell of Edmond, Okla., and Sharon Collie and Belinda Adams, both of Amarillo; three sons, Omar Hilburn of Highland Haven, Thomas Oliver of Jacksonville, N.C., and Charles Oliver of Amarillo; a brother, Alexander Daniel "Buddy" Hilburn of Sioux City, Iowa; two sisters, Celia Olguin and Pauline Jimenez, both of Amarillo; 29 grandchildren; and 27 great grandchildren.
The family will receive friends and family after services at Party Barn, 7200 Canyon Drive.
