Alice Fae Sloane
Just five days after the Pearl Harbor attack Alice Fae Denson arrived in Burbank, California, the daughter of Neil and Maxine Denson.
As a pre-teen Alice first laid her eyes on her future husband Paul. Paul was born in Glendale, California the son of Glenn and Virginia Sloane. It happens that Neil and Maxine owned a liquor store in Sun Valley, California where Alice spent much of her time with her parents. Glenn was a regular customer and one day Glenn came into the store with young son Paul in tow and when Paul first saw Alice, he knew that she was the girl for him. After all, why wouldn’t you want to marry a girl whose father owned a liquor store.
The years passed and after both Paul and Alice graduated from the same High School they began dating and later married on June 12, 1960, in Sunland, California. While dating Alice made it clear that she wanted to be married as far as she could get from December 12th, on an even year, and on a Sunday. June 12, 1960, fit all the requirements. She did not like being born so close to Christmas, you December babies will understand that.
Later came Sherri Fae Sloane, first daughter and followed by second daughter Patricia Anne Sloane. Next came grandchildren and later great grandchildren. The Sloane’s were an adventurous bunch and spent many of their years together with horses, trail riding, riding in parades both in the saddle and driving a buggy. The family camped and backpacked together taking advantage of the High Sierra mountains in California. As the daughters grew Alice became a girl scout leader, guiding troops from Brownies through high school level. In fact, at the high school level she formed (as far as we know) the first (unofficial) co-ed girl scout troop in California that camped at least once a month having great experiences together. In Utah she has been a member of the Back Country Horsemen of Utah for many years.
Due to the economic conditions in the 90’s Paul and Alice followed their daughters to St. George in 2003, making their new home in Winchester Hills where they could keep their horses.
Alice loved to travel and had many opportunities to join her husband on personal and business trips in the USA, Canada, Mexico, Australia, Kwajalein, Europe, Mediterranean, the UK, and three cruises. On occasion other family members joined in on the fun.
No matter where she traveled, to business conventions, or abroad she brought joy to those who she encountered, especially friends, relatives, and her dachshund’s who loved her. Alice was a great mom doing all she could to assure the best for her children. She had a wonderful artistic touch producing beautiful pieces in her craft room. Sadly, at the age of 80 she passed, leaving the sixty-one years together as a family, her legacy and will always be remembered by those who loved her in life.
A Celebration of Alice’s Life will be held at a future date. Arrangements are under the direction of Affordable Funerals and Cremations, 157 E. Riverside Drive#3A, St. George, Utah.
