She and her siblings lost both parents a year apart in her preteen years. Alice later went to Texas to be near a brother in the military service. There she met and married her first husband Gene Allen Turner, Sr. They bore four children and lived there about 21 years before moving back to her beloved Montana. Gene passed away from cancer in 1980.
Alice then operated a private nursing home for many years in Billings, until she met her second husband Stanley Newbury through square dancing. They married in 1989, Stan was the owner and pharmacist of Line Drug for 27 years.
Sadly they were only married for three years when Stan passed away from cancer. Until about three years ago Alice still owned the Line Western Drug Building in Columbus. She was very sad to see the building burn to the ground a few weeks ago.
Alice was preceded in death by her two husband, three brothers, Frank, Dave and Bill Pollock.

Alice was very active in her community. She was a member of the Bag Ladies and the Garden Club. She and her daughter managed the Museum Of The Beartooths Gift Shop. She also volunteered at Project Hope and still square danced and taught Sunday school to seniors at her much loved Evangelical Church. Alice loved her home, her flowers, her community, her friends and family and was in turn loved by many. She will be greatly missed.
