Obituary for Alice M. Douglas

Alice M. Douglas, 94 years, of Oakland, Nebraska, gracefully and peacefully entered heaven’s gates on November 19, 2019, with her three daughters by her side. She was born July 14, 1925, in Plainview, Nebraska, to Charles and Alice (Sirek) Tepner.

On November 7, 1943, Alice married Keith M. Douglas and adored almost 59 years with the love of her life. To this union, three daughters were born, Diane (Joe) Cohen of Encinitas, California; Cindy (Bob) Klein and Donna (Terry) Geviss, all of Lincoln, Nebraska.

Alice graduated from Plainview High School in 1943 and attended Norfolk Jr. College (Northeast Community College). She spent 12 years as a rural K-8 schoolteacher in Pierce, Burt and Washington counties. She later worked 22 years at Holmquist Grain and Lumber, as a bookkeeper.

Alice was a 50-year member of the First United Methodist Church of Oakland and The Order of Eastern Star, where she served as past matron. She also belonged to the VFW Ladies’ Auxiliary, United Methodist Women, and Plainview Congregational Church’s Women’s Circle, where she served as past president. She did many volunteer activities, including Girl Scouts, where she was cookie chairman for many years, Job’s Daughters, Red Cross Bloodmobile, the VFW and helped with many church activities at the nursing home. She also enjoyed teaching Sunday school.

Alice was very crafty. After retirement, she was able to spend more time on her many hobbies: reading and master crafts of knitting, crocheting and making many afghans and doilies for family, extended family and friends. She loved watching the Husker Volleyball girls.
