She was born March 2, 1916 in Dunseith, North Dakota at home in the Turtle Mountains to parents Henry and Charlotte Hiatt. She was the third of eight children. She had two brothers and five sisters.

Alice and Stanley moved to Medford in the summer of 1951 and have made the Rogue Valley their home ever since. She had lived with her daughter Marvel for the past nine years until her passing.
Alice was the matriarch of the family and kept five generations of family going strong. Her favorite things to do were to crochet, bake and spend her time with family surrounded by her many grandchildren which she loved very much. She made sure everyone of her fifty five grandchildren had a crocheted blanket to remember her by. She was very happy playing cards and games with her family. She taught her children and grandchildren the art of making lefsa for the holiday meal and this became a tradition that will be followed for many years to come.
Alice is survived by her daughter Marvel of White City, Son Gene Sr of White City, son Ronald and wife Mary, Medford. She is also survived by her 12 grandchildren, 29 great grandchildren and 14 great great grandchildren and one more due in September.

The clerk thanked him and sent him on to the next office.
The second applicant said that his last day was his worst. “I was on the roof of an apartment building working on the AC equipment. I stumbled over my tools and toppled off the building. I managed to grab onto the balcony rail of a 9th floor apartment but some idiot came rushing out on the balcony and bashed my hands with a flower pot. I fell but hit some awnings and bushes and survived, but as I looked up I saw a huge chest falling toward me. I tried to crawl out of the way but failed and was hit and killed by the chest.”
The clerk couldn’t help but chuckle as he directs the man to the next room.
He is still giggling when his third customer of the day enters. He apologizes and says “I doubt that your last day was as interesting as the fellow in here just before you.”
“I don’t know” replies the man, “picture this, I’m buck naked hiding in this cedar chest…..”
