Later the store was sold and they moved briefly to Fargo, Hatton and then back to Sharon. Chester died February 1, 1999. Alyce continued to reside in an apartment in Sharon. In her active years, Alyce was a wonderful person inside and outside. She was very caring to friends and family and had many talents. Her decorated wedding cakes brought pleasure and fond memories too many couples, her buns were “out of this world”. She baked them without a recipe, from memory, but with the love of her hands. Alyce especially took pride in her personal appearance and always looked beautiful. Even in her later years, when a resident in the nursing home, she wanted to appear well groomed. Her hair was very special, always done up well and she was good at “doing” hair, and assisting others. She loved music and she and Chester spent many hours dancing. Alyce had a special long time girl friend, Gladys Huso. Their entire lives they enjoyed fun laughter, residing next door to each other in Sharon and then in the nursing home. Due to declining health, she moved into Parkview Care Center, March 25, 2003.
