She was born August 22, 1933, in Carroll County, TN; the daughter of the late V.A. & Stella (McDonald) Clement.  She retired with the Gibson County School System & Dyer High School as a schoolteacher and attended Dyer First Baptist Church. Mrs. Alice loved her community, and it shows in her volunteer work. At Dyer First Baptist, she served in WMU, acted as Director of Dyer Nursing Home Ministry, sang in the choir, and taught as a Sunday School teacher. She also wrote articles for the Tri-City newspaper. Additionally, she was involved in her local school program, partially responsible for starting a band program in the school. When not helping her local community, she served on mission trips abroad in places such as Africa, Romania, and Costa Rica.

In lieu of flowers the family has requested donations to the Tanya Taylor Memorial Missionary Fund at Dyer First Baptist or a donation to the Gideons in her memory.
