Dear Mom,
Your wisdom, your strength, your resilience, your fortitude and love and understanding will forever live and grow through your kids, grandkids and generation to follow. Your baking however and especially the pull-aparts are forever gone. I shall never taste anything that heavenly till we meet again.
Thanks for your Love.

When I think of Alice, I think of her smile as her kindness always showed on her face. She was a good friend to my Mom.....a friendship that lasted many decades.

Our deepest condolences to you. We have met Alice only once, but the time we spent with her was really special. Such a wonderful person who will not be forgotten. I have to smile when I think about the afternoon we spent with her playing music and singing together. She made such an impression on all of us with her warm and open personality - we will keep her spirit in such a good memory. We feel very honored and thankful that we have met and know that people like her who have lived with so much love actually never leave us and are always with us in our hearts.

My deepest condolences to the family. I've known Alice since I could ride a bike to their house. She would bring treats while I watched Art work on shoes. She was always tough and strong while also being kind and gentle. A very caring lady who carried herself with great poise. I will miss and always remember her.

Rob Torkildson February 18, 2020

I was fortunate to have known Alice for 36 years. She was my best friend Kevin's mother and my grandmother's friend. I found her to be a sweet and caring woman, a feisty scrabble player, and quite witty. A hug from Alice always left me with a feeling of love. I will miss her and wish her a safe passage. With love, Rob Torkildson.

Grandma Alice was my uncle in-law’s mother. But to me, she was like a grandmother. I will always remember the beautiful red and white quilt with hearts that she made for me when I was a child and which I still use to this day, some 30+ years later. I remember playing cards with her and enjoying desserts and chocolate together. I remember how beautiful she looked in the pictures of her as a young woman in the 1940s and how much I adored her hair and clothing styles from that time. But most of all, I remember her character: her kindness, helpfulness and generosity towards others; her strength, resilience and tenacity in the face of life’s ups and downs. She was an indomitable spirit, so lovely and so good. My heart is mourning for her passing but I am glad and proud to have known her and so glad that she stayed with us for this long. May her kind, beautiful soul rest in peace, with the angels.

I am so glad I got to see Alice recently and I got to tell her how I think of her when using recipes she posted in a cook book I have. Thoughts and prayers for the family during this time of saying good bye. We trust the Lord for the reunion we await on the other side. Love, from Jaine Benson

What a beautiful & wonderful person your mom was. We knew her for many years and always thought the world of her. She papered at our home, she helped Bettie many times and she will not be forgotten. May the good Lord bless each of you with beautiful memories of your Mom.

Alice, mother of my good friend Kevin, was one of a kind. I will miss her welcoming smile and her inner calm. She was like a second mother and an amazing source for anything "Rushford." She outlasted me many nights with her lore. God bless you Alice you were a rare gift to us all!

Rose Hundorf Conway February 15, 2020

Alice was my first cousin, my mom was Esther Jonsgaard. In recent years, Alice rode with us to show the homestead of my mom and hers connected. My niece, Tammy, Margaret Ann Hundorf's daughter, my husband and myself, enjoyed the day with Alice. We would go visit her when we were camping in Rushford area. She was one strong lady and I always admired her. She has given many good memories to keep with me forever 🤗
