Alice was a florist and small business owner, beginning her floral business by selling Yule logs during the Depression. She ran Alice Flower & Gifts in West Bend for 34 years, then enjoyed continuing her profession helping her daughter at Lockerís Flowers. Alice belonged to Eastern Star, the Republican Party, the Wauwatosa Congregational Church and attended with her daughter at the Naples Congregational Church. She enjoyed arranging flowers and painting.
