Alice Geneive Adams Preece, age 75, passed away early Saturday morning March 9, 2013, after a valiant battle fighting frontal temporal dementia.
Alice graduated from Morgan High School and married her sweetheart Edward L. Preece in 1955 in Morgan. She worked for the Morgan School District for 32 years in the school lunch program. She started as a cook, and worked up to food service director of the district’s school lunch program. She loved all the wonderful ladies she worked with and all the children at the schools. She made many friends for life. She retired in 2000. She served in various church callings and especially loved being a Visiting Teacher. She loved to serve, enjoyed following her kids and grandkids to their many religious and sporting events and enjoyed spending time with family and friends bowling.
Alice and her sisters Iris and Marcia formed a catering business, serving many meals at special events in Morgan. They had a special love and friendship with each other. Their love and compassion for others was shown by performing many secret acts of kindness and service.
Alice loved life, she had a wonderful smile and laugh. She loved her family and cherished her grand and great-grandchildren.
She leaves behind four children: Kelly E. Preece (Connie), Kerry L. Preece (Lori), Charlene Jones (Leonard), JoAnne Stockett (Neal); 15 grandchildren; 31 great-grandchildren (with two on the way); three sisters: Iris Heiner, Marcia Leak, and Sylvia Germer; three brothers: Ken Adams, Les Adams, and Chet Adams.

Preece; parents, Kenneth and Gwendlyn Adams; sister, Connie Hanney; brother-in-law, Dean Hanney; brother-in-law, Max Preece; sister-in-law, June Callahan and granddaughter, Halle.
