She attended Jamestown schools and graduated from Jamestown High in 1947.

On Dec. 8, 1955, she married Harold L. Hoover, who survives at home.

For many years, she had been a member of the American Blind Bowling Association and served as the tournament director for 16 years and later as secretary-treasurer for four years. She was a life member and in 1989 was awarded the prestigious Abe Cohen award for Outstanding Leadership and Dedication to the organization.

(Joyceanna) Hoover, Aiken, S.C.; a sister Evelyn Smith, Erie; five brothers, Prince Roy, Ohio; Russell, Raymond and Larry (Pat) Roy, all Jamestown, and Richard Roy, Beaver; and six grandchildren and a great-granddaughter.

Alice enjoyed reading and doing crossword puzzles. She also got a great deal of pleasure making quilts and giving them to friends and family.

She was preceded in death by her parents; a son, Fred; and two sisters, Helen Hartness and Juana Roy.

A memorial service will be announced at a later date.
