Alice Mae Thornton Merideth, 70, of Florence, Texas, passed away on July 4, 2012, in Temple, Texas. Alice was born on February 3, 1942, in Temple, Texas, to Henry Arthur and Bessie Woodall Thornton.
She is survived by her husband, David Wilson Merideth Sr. of Florence, Texas; her son, David Wilson Merideth Jr. and wife Sandra of Florence, Texas; granddaughter, Krystal Merideth of Georgetown, Texas; three great grandsons: Allan "DJ" Manning, Colton Maxwell Manning and Nathan Jay Manning all of Georgetown, Texas; her sisters: Mary Jane Parlin of Austin, Texas, Anna Bess Thornton of Florence, Texas; sisters-in-law: Barbara Katherine Haydon of Florence, Texas and Margaret Carolyn Stiles of Temple, Texas. She was preceded in death by her son, Michael Allan Merideth and her parents.
At different phases of her life Alice was a homemaker raising her two boys, waitress, bookkeeper, real estate agent and a self-employed business owner of a gas station, in Florence until she retired.
Anybody can be a mother or grandmother yet NO ONE can be our Gran. Alice never met a stranger and never had an enemy. She loved to spend time at garage sales looking for that just right knick knack or a great sale at a department store. Some people read novels and some people read cookbooks. Alice read both with the same passion. She loved to cook and her eggs goldenrod will be missed just as surely as her Christmas and New Year's morning breakfast. She cherished her son, granddaughter and her great grandsons with a passion and love that excelled. She took the position that her great grandsons could do no wrong. She lived for every moment she could spend with them, reading books in the rocking chair, inventing a new song for them to sing, playing with trucks or just a day at the park. Some people walk this earth and leave a footprint that is blown away by the winds of time and some leave footprints for others to follow in that never wears out. Alice left some mighty special footprints and will be missed.
A time of visitation will be held from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. on Sunday, July 8, 2012, at Ramsey Funeral Home.
The Funeral Service will be held at 10:00 a.m. on Monday, July 9, 2012, at Florence United Methodist Church. Burial will follow the service at the Florence Cemetery.
Honored to serve as pallbearers includes: Russell Haydon, Zachary Haydon, Thomas Stiles Jr., Marshal Stiles, Steven Kaufman and Samuel Ramirez.
