She was born Dec. 18, 1930, in Painesville, Ohio, to Otis and Glovina (Woodlan) Sumpter.
Alice was a faithful homemaker who raised four wonderful sons. She loved the Lord, and she was a dedicated prayer warrior. She enjoyed being with her family, painting, traveling, and spending winters with her beloved husband in Florida. Alice and Bill's devotion to one another is an inspiration to everyone. She will always be his girl, and he will always be her hero.

Karkosky of Anderson, and Scott E. (Fiancee, Darlene) Karkosky of Alexandria; sister, Darlene (Howard) Tidd of Anderson; 12 grandchildren; 16 great-grandchildren; and several nieces and nephews.
The family would like to thank all the special caregivers for their love and support.
