My condolences to this precious lady's family. I have such fond memories of her, as she and my sister were high school friends. I liked her so much that I named my imaginary friend Mary Alice.

Mary Alice was a very sweet and kind lady and always had something good to say every time you saw her. I spent many a night at the Western's home during the 1970's , when Mike and I were in High School. I'll always cherish those memories of those times. In Deepest Sympathy , Jeff Harrell

Ann and Ronnie, Sooo Sorry to hear your sad news. Mary Alice was a very kind and gentle lady. I worked with her for many years at the bank.

I loved Mary Alice From the Bank . I always waited till I could get her to wait on me , because I loved her beautiful smile and her kind voice, and all of us at Access Medical loved taking care of her. Sometimes she would call us about something we would take off to her house, and sometimes she just wanted to talk. Yes we will all miss this beautiful lady, She was loved by all of us.
