Alice Mae (Hanson) Williams
11/14/1927 - 8/13/2019 Alice Mae (Hanson) Williams passed away from natural causes on Tuesday, August 13, 2019, at the age of 91. The widow of Robert W. Williams from Montana, Alice leaves behind her son Matt Williams (and wife Carol), and her two daughters Terri Van Guilder (and husband Don) and Jamie Williams. She also leaves her two granddaughters, Elizabeth Winter (and husband Todd) and Stacey Van Guilder, and her two great grandchildren Emelia Carlson and Matthew Winter. Alice was born and raised in Alexandria, Mn, the only child of F. William and Minnie Hanson. She married her husband “Bob” in 1948 and enjoyed an active and loving relationship until his untimely death in 1991. They spent the beginning years of their married life in Walnut Creek, Ca, where they happily raised their three kids. Alice and Bob returned to Alexandria in the early 1970’s to take care of her aging mother. They opened the Pots and Plants store downtown which later became Broadway Floral. They retired and sold the business, and after Bob’s death, Alice returned to California where she lived with her daughter Jamie until her death. Alice was a bright, talented, fun-loving person with a great sense of humor, who loved her family and friends immensely. She will be greatly missed.
