The couple started their family in Corpus Christi, TX. In the sixties they made their final move and made Gonzales, TX their home.
Alice was a homemaker and devoted mother and grandmother to all. To know Alice was to love her. She accepted everyone. Flaws and all. Once in her family, always in her family. Her love knew no bounds. She loved dancing, country music, The Young and the Restless, Dallas Cowboys and anytime that she got to spend with her family. Alice was the greatest listener and most dependable person there was. She was loved by many and will be greatly missed. We love you Nan!
