Alice Farrell and her husband, William Haldane, raised six children, while residing in Oakland County, Michigan. She worked as a police officer for a number of years and was a candidate for the Bloomfield Township Treasurer's Office in 1932. The election was held on March 7, 1932 and Alice came in second, losing by only 200 votes.

Family lore says that when Alice's physician pronounced she had died in the hospital, she was actually still alive. Alice was delivered to the mortuary to be prepared for her funeral service, but at some point, she became responsive. When it was realized Alice was not dead, the morticians returned her to the hospital, however, she passed away a few hours later. Her nephew, Richard W. Kraetke, always maintained, that when Alice awoke at the mortuary, she was so terrified, she ultimately died of pure fright.

"Haldane, Alice (nee Farrell) Birmingham, Michigan, beloved wife of William R.; dear mother of William F., Thomas M., Margaret A., Alice C., John C., and Robert J.; dear sister of Thomas F. Farrell and Mrs. E. M. Kraetke. Funeral 8:45 AM, Saturday at the William F. Blake Funeral Home, Birmingham; 9:30 Holy Name Church."

Alice's funeral service was conducted by William F. Blake Funeral Home, Birmingham, Michigan and the service was held at Holy Name Catholic Church."
