Lives Lived: Alice Lundgren

Alice Lundgren went home to be with the Lord on Jan. 13. She was 79.

A memorial service and lunch will be held at 11 a.m. Saturday, Feb. 20, at New Covenant Baptist Church, 12582 Squirrel Creek Road, just west of Grass Valley.

She was born on June 2, 1930, in Florence, Ariz. She came from a large family of six brothers and five sisters.

Mrs. Lundgren and her husband, Albin, enjoyed taking cruises to the Virgin Islands, Alaska, Mexico and Hawaii.

She had different jobs and liked them all. She got along with her co-workers and had many friends who liked and loved her. She especially loved her church family.

Mrs. Lundgren was the type of person who could light up a room when she walked in. She made friends very easily, and everybody loved her from the inside out.

She was admitted to Sierra Nevada Memorial Hospital with pneumonia and two other infections on the evening before Thanksgiving Day. She was transferred to Kindred Hospital in Folsom the Tuesday before Christmas, and tests there revealed a tumor, a collapsed lung and ovarian cancer.

She will be remembered and missed by many.

Mrs. Lundgren is survived by Betty Colgate, Patty Drake, and Michael Moore; her daughter, Sandra Lundgren; and various nieces and nephews.

Memorial donations may be made to New Covenant Baptist Church.
