ALICE'S OBITUARY (Tehachapi News) [survivors names are removed]:

Alice Freemon, of Tehachapi, passed away Dec. 30, 2008 in Bakersfield, at the age of 87.

Alice was born June 5, 1921 in Winton, Calif. to David McCurdy and Georgine N. (Marcussen) Chambers.

Alice married Earl Raymond Higginbotham in 1940 and they moved to McFarland in 1945 to the Higginbotham family farm. Alice served her family as a homemaker and was known for her outstanding baking, sweets and desserts were the favorites of family and friends.

Earl passed away in 1967 and Alice married Arthur L. Freemon in 1973, he also preceded her in death in 1978.

She enjoyed playing cards at the Golden Age Clubs, pinochle and canasta; and traveling to Hawaii, which she was able to do several times. Alice was a lifetime member of the McFarland PTA and was room mother for her children Norman and Nancy, in charge of all the parties at school and wonderful birthday parties at home.

She also helped establish the Golden Age Clubs in McFarland and Wasco and baked lots of cakes for them. She was a member of the First United Methodist Church of Wasco.

She will be remembered as a person who loved taking care people and devoted herself to her family, friends and others. If someone was in need, she did what she could to help always baking cakes or cookies for someone.

Surviving family members include [names removed] two children; one son-in-law; one brother; five grandchildren; one granddaughter-in-law; four great-grandchildren; and one great great-grandchild.

Alice was preceded in death by her husbands, parents, and two brothers, Elmer and Harry Moller.
