Alice returned to Austin in 1982, spending many of her retirement years involved in civic and social activities. Much of her time was given to assisting individuals and various community groups. Alice is highly respected and loved by those whose lives she has touched.

She was a life-long member of Wesley United Methodist Church and Wesley United Methodist Women.

She is remembered and embraced with affection and love by her daughter, Karen N. Orange and son, Robert N. Alexander, and her grandchildren, Terra Luna, Coleman, Danielle and Alea.

A loving and devoted friend who enjoyed life to its fullest, Alice will long be remembered by all who knew her as a unique, free spirit. She was gracious, kindly and understanding always combining nobility and humility. The model of respectability, cordiality, helpfulness and friendliness to each and every soul she encountered, Alice, our friend, was a cherished gift we all appreciated and will miss.
