Alice May Billingsley Sledge
Birth: Jun. 14, 1888
Death: Jan. 24, 1982
Parmer County
Texas, USA

Daughter of John Calvin and Mary Susan May Billingsley.

She married Calvin Wesley Sledge on December 2, 1906. Their children are John Calvin, Cecil Marshall, and Elbert Vernon Sledge.

Alice's father was murdered when she was seven years old. Since she was the oldest, she had to quit school in the third grade to look after the younger children and the house so her mother could go work in the fields. She was a wonderful cook and was never without needlework in her hands when she was sitting. She made quilts for every child, grandchild, and great grandchild as well as crochet and embroidery. After they retired and sold the farm, they continued to have a canning garden as well as a celebrated flower garden.

This memorial is maintained by a direct descendant of the deceased.
