Alice was born November 5, 1917 in Wynne, AR to Elbert and Dorothy Lucille (Armstrong) Willis. Hers was a life well lived in spite of many hardships and frequent moves as a child. She adored her loving father and siblings Bill, Ray, Roy and Curtis. After missing school for 2 years, she moved in with the Allen family as a babysitter. Their love and nurturing helped her graduate from William Chrisman High School and elope with the love of her life Kenneth Clow. They were married for 73 years. It all started at a campus volleyball game when he walked by the beautiful Alice and said “what a referee!” This is one feisty lady with many talents: painter, decorator, model, avid clothes, purse and shoe collector. She went to Heaviland School of Beauty and had the “Clow’s pin” in her home for years.

Loved her job at the Jones Store and gladly contributed to their success.

Jacque, Larry, Stephanie and Melissa Lane Son David Clow and Duane Clow. Beloved extended family, Kris, Leon, Laura, Leah, Sara and their families. Loved the YaYa’s and families, Libby and Molly.
