Alice Kathryn Stone

LAUREL COUNTY, Ky. — Alice Kathryn Stone passed away in Lexington, Ky., on June 3, 2014.  She was 81 years of age. 

Alice was born in Bryan, Texas, on May 2, 1933.  Growing up, she lived in Texas and Illinois. She attended the University of Iowa and Abilene Christian University, where she met and married her husband, Jack Stone.  In 1971, she and her husband and their two children moved to California.

Throughout her life, Alice was a member of the Church of Christ and was active in a variety of community organizations, including Soroptimist International.  She helped thousands of students find jobs during her career as a vocational/career counselor at both Heald College and Fresno City College.  In 1999, she and her husband moved from California to London, Ky., where they put down roots and built their dream home.

Alice loved living in Kentucky and all of its natural beauty.  She enjoyed gardening, home decorating, snow and water skiing, boating, camping and fishing. Most of all, she enjoyed spending time with her family and friends.

She was active in the Newcomers Club of London, and the University of Kentucky Cooperation Extension Service where she earned her certificate as a Master Gardener. She had many dear friends in London and will be missed greatly by all who knew her.

She was preceded in death by her husband, and is survived by her daughter and her husband, Aleta and Michael Flores; her son and his wife, Marshall and Cinda Stone; and her two beautiful granddaughters, Samantha and Katherine Stone. She also leaves behind her sister and brother-in-law, Wynnell and Don Busch of Tennessee; and her brother and sister-in-law, Jerry and Judy McCorkle of Texas, along with numerous nieces and nephews. 

Alice was kind, patient, sweet and full of grace.  She was a wonderful wife, a loving mother, a great friend, a good cook, and someone who always put others’ needs ahead of her own.  She was delightful.  She loved to laugh, lived life fully, and treasured every moment she was given. She will be missed beyond words.  

A private memorial service will be held to honor her life.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the American Cancer Society, Hospice of the Bluegrass, or the Alzheimer’s Association.
