Alice was born near Humboldt, Iowa, and early in the 20th century her family moved north to Minnesota where they resided in the Curry and Walnut Grove areas.

Alice was united in marriage to William Wiuff, and they later moved to Tracy where Mr. Wiuff operated a Pontiac garage. They had two children, Edward and Lucille.

Alice was a member of Our Savior's Lutheran Church in Milroy, Minnesota for many years. She resided in the Centennial Homes in Tracy until age and illness forced her to enter the Tracy Nursing Home in May of 1985 where she has resided since.

Alice passed away at the Tracy Nursing Home on October 23, 1989, after a lingering illness.

Alice is survived by one grandson, William Tinsly; one great granddaughter, Heather, both of Garden Grove, California; and several nieces and nephews.

She was preceded in death by one sister, Freda Benz Knutson; two other sisters; one brother; one son, Edward, and one daughter, Lucille Tinsly.

The funeral service was held at Butson-Jacobson Funeral Home in Tracy, with Pastor Donald Comnick officiating. Burial was in St. John's Cemetery in Emmetsburg.
