Alice touched my heart the moment I met her. Her kindness radiated in her eyes and smile. She will surely be missed, but heaven has a new Angel.

My deepest condolences to the Benson family, Alice was such a warm and loving person. Alice always had a funny story to tell when she would come in to get her hair done. Trishia Nester from his in His&Her’s Hair Design..

I’m so sorry to hear of Alice’s passing. Alice was always warm and friendly when I was lucky enough to see her at family celebrations - birthdays, graduations, etc. She was such a sweet lady and I will miss her a lot. My condolences to her family.

Incredible woman and great over-the-backyard-fence neighbor for years. Thank you for being such a positive influence on both my daughters.

Stahl Post’s greatest cheerleader!
I will never forget her supportive yell, “ Come on Steve; you are better than he is”. And she believed it. She wanted you to believe it. We lost Barney (“Coach”) way too soon. Well, I guess he called Alice’s number to step up to the plate and swing away. She hit a home run in life and has joined Barney in that ball field in the sky.
God bless her, her family and all of us who will miss our favorite cheerleader.
