Marion County

Alice, the daughter of James Henry and Clara May (Kannengiesser) Winkley, was born in rural Marion County, Kansas, not far from Aulne. The family moved to the city of Marion while Alice was still a child. She attended Ottawa University in Ottawa, Kansas followed by a lengthy career as a teacher which she completed in the Livermore, California school district. In 1970, she moved to Billings, MT to be near her adopted daughter and family. In typical fashion, she planned every last detail of her life including her funeral. The garment in which she was buried hung in her closet for over 20 years. Even so, Alice was a warm, compassionate, giving person. She wanted to know how the rest of the world lived, so following retirement she took a trip around the world on a freighter. She volunteered her time and considerable skills to help others and supported two girls in South America through "Save the Children." She was a strong, gentle woman much loved by family and friends.
