Alice Pearl Wirt, 75, went to be with her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on Monday, November 27, 2017 in Houston, Texas. She is with the Lord and so shall she ever be with the Lord. She was at peace and surrounded by her family and close friends as she left this world and was received into Heaven. A life well-lived has now received her reward.

Alice is preceded in death by her mom and dad, Alta and Herbert Altice, her brother Wallace Altice and her sister Barbara Witt.

Alice is survived by her loving husband and partner of 57 years, Bob, her sons Scott, Gary and Jason. Grandchildren Alec, Alyssa, Cole, Aaron, Makayla, Trinity, Jaidyn and Meghan, and her sister Becky Kelley of Virginia.

Alice was born in Salem, Virginia on May 10, 1942. She met the love of her life, Bob, when she was 14 years old and they were married on August 6, 1960. Alice and Bob spent the first 21 years of their marriage in Fairborn, Ohio where Bob was stationed in the Air Force and where they started a family and raised their sons. The family moved to League City, Texas in the summer of 1980. Alice worked at Bay Area Christian School for 5 years as a teacher’s aide and 18 years at Clear Creek ISD in the Food Service Department from which she retired in 2004.

Alice built her home with love, acceptance, patience and affection and was warm and welcoming to friends and strangers alike. She was a wonderful cook and loved to cook for her family and friends and engaging in meaningful conversation around the table. Christmas was Alice’s favorite time of year and she loved putting smiles on the faces of her family with the many surprises she had for them during that time. She had a way of making each person feel special and loved and appreciated. And even though she thoroughly enjoyed the giving of gifts at Christmas time she always made sure that everyone close to her understood the true meaning of Christmas. She always pointed them to Jesus.

Alice was strong in her Christian faith and loved her Lord with all her heart. She was a faithful member of Sagemont Church since 1992 where she taught Sunday school for many years. To the very end Alice exuded great concern for the souls of others with some of her last whispered words, “Bring them to Jesus”.

Alice was a counselor at the crisis Pregnancy Center for many years. In lieu of flowers contributions and Alice’s name may be made to The Crisis Pregnancy Center in Friendswood, Texas.

We as her family look forward to a joyful reunion someday with our wife, mother, grandmother. What a joyous reunion that will be.
