A native of Tacoma, WA, age 85 years. Alice was fondly known to her family as “The Grammy”. As Alice traveled through life, she knew no strangers-she loved people and made friends easily. Alice lived on Fox Island and in the Tacoma area until she married Nathan St. Marie in 1941. During the war, Alice drove trucks in the motor pool at Ft. Lewis, WA. Her first two children, Allan and Gus were born in WA.
After the war, Alice and Nathan settled in Montana, where Elizabeth was born. Thence on to California, where they welcomed their youngest child, Susan. Alice has lived with her family in the Sebastopol and Santa Rosa area since 1947. She was married to William A. Scott for thirteen years, who preceded her in death in 1979. In her forties with four children in school, she graduated from the Santa Rosa J.C. as an LVN, one of her proudest accomplishments. She worked as office manager for C.A.
Anderson, chiropractor for twenty-three years. After retirement, she provided loving care for a number of her friends in need of assistance. She was a deacon at Knox Presbyterian Church and a member of the Druids Santa Rosa Circle #66 and the Navy Mother’s Club. Her favorite things in life were her family and drives to Bodega Bay for a bowl of clam chowder. She enjoyed weekly poker games and scrabble with her long-time good friends.
