After retiring, she became an avid gardener & spent a lot of her time working in her yard. She loved having big family meals. She had a huge heart and helped many along her journey.
A special thank you to her long time friend and care taker, Kelly McCray, along with Village Hospice.
Following her wishes, a cremation has taken place at Heartland Cremation & Burial Society. We will be holding a Celebration of Life for Alene this spring, which was her very favorite season & looked forward to it every year. Family & friends will be notified in advance of the date & time.
