Alice Mae Weisbrod, the daughter of Charles and Lulu (Canfield) Norris, was born on April 11, 1909, in Modena, Mo. Her childhood years were spent on a farm near Modena, Mo., where she received her education up to the tenth grade. She continued her high school studies in Iowa, graduating in Marathon, as valedictorian of her class.

Alice married Forrest Weisbrod on July 20, 1927, in Des Moines, Iowa. Following their marriage, they lived on the farm near Rossie, until moving into Spencer, where Alice was an active member of the United Pentecostal Church, serving as treasurer and pianist for many years. She and Forrest moved to St. Paul, Minn., for a few years until retirement. They spent many happy years in retirement in Fort Smith, Ark. until the time of Forrest's death in 1987. Alice remained there until 1994, when she moved back to Spencer. She had lived at the Beehive where she was very close to the other residents and employees. Alice also lived at the Northshire Residence before moving to Coralville to be closer to her daughter, Pat.

She was preceded in death by her parents; her husband, Forrest; two children: Dean and Stanley; six brothers; and one sister.
