Alice Vineyard Magonigal passed away on March 12th at her ranch in Pleasant Valley, where she had lived for 64 years. She was 94.

She moved to the area from Yuba County shortly after her marriage. Her remarkable memory and love for the area provided a seemingly endless source of historical information, which she enjoyed sharing.

Alice lived a happy life, filled with worshipping the Lord, enjoying her family, many friends and neighbors, gardening and caring for her ranch.

She is survived by her daughter, Lois Miles of Silver Lake, Oregon, six grandchildren and nine greatgrandchildren.

Alice is preceded in death by her husband of 51 years, Henry Magonigal in 1986, her sons Jerry Magonigal in 1994 and Clayton Magonigal in 2004.

Graveside services will be held Thursday, March 15th at 2:30pm, at the Smartsville Cemetery. Arrangements are under the direction of Hooper and Weaver Mortuary.
