Alice was born in Paso Robles on June 27, 1930. She attended Oakdale, a one-room schoolhouse in the Willow Creek District and then graduated as the valedictorian from Templeton High School in 1948. She became a member of the Willow Creek Mennonite Church during high school and played the piano for Sunday services. Alice worked at Bank of America in Paso until she met and married her husband Bill Carroll. Together they owned and operated Ol’ Smokey Meat Company in Atascadero.
Alice and Bill belonged to Club 50, Cuesta Crankers Model A club, and were active in Rotary. Alice later joined Club 22. She enjoyed gardening, reading, shopping and spending time with her family and friends.
Alice was preceded in death by her parents, Henry and Catherine Wiebe; her husband, Bill, her sister, Irene Fieguth, and brothers Theodore, Rudy and Edgar Wiebe.
She is survived by her children Cheryn (Michael) Buckman and Vicki Carroll of Atascadero; and David (Debi) Carroll of Wills Point, Texas; eight grandchildren Travis and Tiff Buckman, Corina Holzer and Christine Cooks, and Joshua, Aaron, Hosea and Timothy Carroll, and six great-grandchildren.
Alice (Mom, Nana) will be missed for her generous, loving heart, her sharp wit, wisdom, sense of fun and her beautiful smile.
Alice spent her last few years at Ingleside Assisted Living where she got to “rule the roost” and made many lasting friendships. Her family would like to express their sincere gratitude for the fun and love the staff family shared with her.
