Alice M. Adcox passed away Friday March 12, 2021 at the Methodist Hospital in San Antonio, TX of natural causes at 100 years of age. Known affectionately by many of her friends as “Sally”, she was born west of Choteau, MT to Oscar and Edna (Stanfield) Hovde on July 19, 1920 and then raised on the family farm outside of Conrad, MT.
After graduating from Conrad High School, she attended the Columbus School of Nursing, completing a nursing degree. She worked as a RN at a doctor’s office for a few years before beginning a long career as an Emergency Room nurse at the Columbus Hospital.
While in nursing school, she met and later married her life-long husband John Adcox who died in 2009. During their marriage, they built two houses together, one in Great Falls and their current residence west of Great Falls. She enjoyed gardening, sewing, and supporting the family in various adventures with horses, pigeons, camping, and other endeavors.
Alice was known as a loving and caring person with a temperament that was thoughtful, stable and lovable. She was never one to criticize or say negative things about others. To the end, she was a devoted Christian and Our Saviors Lutheran Church member. Without exception, she prayed daily for those on the prayer chain and supported others however she could. The day of her death, she noted having a very good and long life and expressed a belief that it was her turn to leave (to heaven).
At the time of her death, she was residing in Texas with family. She was preceded in death by husband, John; brothers, Howard, Bob, John, Edward, and Art Hovde; and sister, Anna (Evers). She is survived by her sister, Madelyn, daughter Kathryn Meade and son-in-law, Raleigh Meade who was like a son to her.
A Funeral Service for Alice will be held at Our Savior’s Lutheran Church in Great Falls, MT on Tuesday, April 20 at 11:00 AM.
In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be given to the Our Saviors Lutheran Church.
