Alice was the fourth of eight children born to Leota and Edward DAVIS. She graduated from Lamoni High School in 1934.

Alice accepted Christ as her Savior on Oct. 31, 1931, and was baptized by the Rev. KRATZER, pastor of the Christian Church in Kellerton.

After finishing school, she spent several years working in department stores as a clerk until 1948 when she started her own store. In 1954 she and her brother started farming near the PECK family, where she met Harold. They were married Feb. 10, 1956. The first five years of their marriage they worked in the store. In 1962 they started farming and raising cattle. Also, in 1962 they started going to Bethel Sunday School, where Alice taught Sunday School for many years. She also taught at Freedom Bible Camp. She dearly loved her Lord and enjoyed serving him.

Harold and Alice started going to Arizona in 1970. Alice helped take care of her invalid brother and helped with his six children while her sister-in-law went to nursing school. Harold and Alice continued traveling to Arizona until 2000. At that time her brother went to be with the Lord.

In 2002 Harold and Alice sold out and moved to Corydon where Alice continued teaching Sunday School until 2003. Due to poor health she had to retire to part-time.
