Alice was born in Orrin, ND. She married William Hatten and later relocated to Montana, where she called home. They were blessed with a daughter, Stacy. Alice loved Montana and everything it had to offer. She enjoyed the vast countryside and beautiful skies, the western mountains, the winding roads, and the peace and tranquility. Horseracing was Alice’s favorite pastime with her husband and daughter. Alice loved her little dogs, watching a good baseball game, cooking, playing cards with loved ones, a good cup of coffee, and most of all she loved her family. She was a devout Catholic and mother. The last years of her life were spent in Orlando living with Stacy and her grandkids. She will be missed by everyone and forever remembered for her compassion, care, and love.
