The family will receive friends one hour prior to the service at the funeral home from 2 until 3. Burial will follow at House of the Lord Cemetery in Cameron.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband, Robert Edward Oakley , sisters, Shirley Blackman and Lois Ring, brothers, Albert, John, Ervin, Jimmy, Marvin, Carl, Paul and Howard.

Alice was fully and selflessly devoted to her family. She was an amazing cook and meticulous keeper of the home in addition to working a full time job outside the home for many years. She loved to sing praises to her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Being deeply rooted in the Word of God, she believed in doing all things well and in accordance with the standards of God’s Word. It is a certainty that she has now stood before the very loving GOD she served all her life and heard these words from Matthew 25:21 “Well done, good and faithful servant, enter into the joy of the Lord.”
