Age 96, passed away in the early morning hours of Tuesday April 9, 2019. She was preceded in death by her husband Carl G. Alford; loving mother of Sharon (Marty) and Donna (Frank); grandmother of Maret, Monique, Seth, and Zachary; great-grandmother of Macy, Lauren, Graham, Sidney, Hayden and  Aubrey.

  “Gin,” as she liked to be called, was always upbeat and always had a joke to tell. She was an accomplished artist, winning her share of ribbons at local art shows. Her loss of eyesight  precluded her from continuing to paint. She was always kind and caring, and loved her family. At the same time she could be stubborn and combative which probably explains her longevity. Gone, but not forgotten, and truly missed.
