Alice Carolyn Wallace Black was born in Canyon City, Randall, Texas on May 18, 1920. Alice was named after her grandmothers Alice Louisa Wallace and Sallie Caroline Matthews. Alice and her family lived on the ranch during the Great Depression and the Dust Bowl. Although times were hard, she loved growing up on the family farm. She loved to ride her horse, play with her little kittens, and she enjoyed the blessings of fruit, grain, garden vegetables and fresh milk and eggs. Alice attended a small prairie schoolhouse and especially loved her teacher, who would take them on nature trips to the Palo Duro Canyon in the panhandle of Texas. In her later youth she excelled in public speaking and won 1st Place in Declamation for her recitation of "The Boy Stood on the Burning Deck" and "Young Fellow My Lad". Living on a farm, she learned to drive at an early age. She always loved driving her car, and even at the age of 90 Alice would sneak out for a morning drive. She married J.D. Hunter, who died during his service in World War II, leaving Alice a widow at a young age. For the remainder of the war, she worked at Bob's Coffee Shop as a waitress. This is where she met James William Harold Black, who was a flight instructor for young men going to serve in the war. They married in December 1944. Alice and Harold had two daughters, Sulon and Louan. Alice was a dedicated wife and a caring, loving and involved mother. She served yearly as a school room mother, welcomed others to her home for dinner, fed numerous missionaries, and encouraged her children in activities, learning and creativity. She made beautiful dresses and coats for Sulon and Louan by hand. She also made the best Halloween costumes. She worked at the grade school Halloween carnival each year. She especially liked helping with the cake walk. For these occasions she made delicious sugar cookies. Alice grew up as a member of the Methodist Church. She always had a strong faith in The Lord Jesus Christ. In her forties she became a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day-Saint. In both churches she served mostly with young children. The calling she primarily enjoyed was as Branch Junior Sunday School Coordinator and later as the Texas Mission Junior Sunday School Coordinator. She excelled in this because of her faith in Christ, her teaching abilities and her love and kindness for children. She was an example of Southern hospitality. She served and loved others with a tender heart. After Harold's death in 1985, Alice lived in Logan, Utah and Mesa, Arizona to be near children and grandchildren. She continued to serve and bless her family all her life. In May of 2010 she celebrated her 90th birthday with family. Alice always remembered birthdays and holidays with cards sent to each grandchild and great-grandchild through the years. They all received a last Valentine from her in February this year. She would always sign her cards with her love and blessings. She was preceded in death by her husband, Harold Black, her mother Suvilla Wallace, her father Jeff Wallace and her brother Harold Wallace. She is survived by her children, Sulon Beal of Mesa, Arizona and Louan (Gary) Lowder of Providence, Utah; her grandchildren Amber Beal, Matt Black, Mike and Erika Lowder, Loralie Lowder, Liz and Josh Durrant, Katie and Cory Brinck, and Cami Lowder; and 12 great-grandchildren. Services will be held on Monday, April 4th at Allen Hall Mortuary, 34 East Center St., Logan, Utah at 2:00 p.m. A viewing will be held prior from 12:30 -1:30 PM at the mortuary. Interment will be in the Logan City Cemetery.
