Mrs. Alice Austin

Alice Austin was an active member of the Methodist church in Curtis since 1920. She was a good mother, generous neighbor and a friend to all who came her way — particularly to the numerous small boys who found her backyard most inviting to those interested in fishing worms and other things small boys investigate. She was most generous with her apple trees to these same boys.

Funeral services were held December 13 at the Methodist church in Curtis. The Rev. Allan W. Martin officiated. Burial was in the Curtis cemetery.
