Bennie and Alice were high school sweethearts. They were known for their love of dancing, and they shared many fun hours traveling to different dances with their friends and relatives. Their children and grandchildren, nieces, and nephews loved to be in their home, and they shared many happy hours and good meals with them. After 62 years of marriage, Bennie passed away on July 10, 1995.

Alice was a cheerful homemaker and devoted, unselfish wife and mother. She shared her home with all she knew, was a kind and good neighbor, and a friend to anyone in need.
