What a lovely person Alice was! I worked with her in Waverly when I was a high school teacher and later as a parent volunteer in the elementary library. She was always such a pleasant person to be around and had a warm smile for everyone. I enjoyed working with her. I am sorry for your loss.

When Alice was the librarian at Waverly I was her library clerk/secretary from 1967-68 and 1968-69 school years. We were very busy getting the new library organized. She worked hard, was fun to work with and very nice to me. She had a library club (students) -- several times all of us went to lunch in Lincoln (a treat) Alice was also my daughter Teresa's 6th grade teacher. I was born on a farm north of Ord, Nebr. so have been to Loup City many times. I want to extend our sympathy to you in the loss of a lovely lady. We'll be out of town the 23rd so we'll miss the services. Sincerely, Viola (Vi) & Tom Polk 10520 N 144th Waverly, NE 68462
