Obituary of Alice Best Cobb

Alice died March 17, 2016, in Tacoma, WA. She was 98.

Alice Grace Weber was born Dec. 9, 1917 in Baggs, WY to Joseph Henry and Leah Clark Weber. She was the 10th of 12 children.

She attended school in Baggs, graduating from High School in 1935. She married Lawrence (Tim) Best in Rawlins, WY on Sept. 5, 1936. They had three children, Judy (Voth), Keith (Debi) and Loris (Bill) Fabyunkey.

Alice made her choice to serve the Lord in 1944 at Geraldine, MT. She and Tim came to California in 1962, living first in Truckee, then Rough and Ready.

Tim preceded her in death in 1973.

In 1978 she married H. Carlton Cobb and moved to Cedar Ridge. Carleton preceded her in death in 1981. Alice had a green thumb and always found a bit of dirt wherever she was to grow her geraniums and irises. She never passed up an interesting rock in her travels. She loved to read and crochet and spent several years writing her life story. She was an example to all who knew her of a faithful life.

Besides three children and three step children, Alice is survived by a host of grandchildren; nieces; nephews; and friends to mourn her passing and remember her with love.

Graveside service will be at 1:30 p.m. on June 10 at Sierra Lawn Cemetery, 459 Hollow Way in Nevada City. A reception will follow in the Hooper and Weaver Fellowship Hall.
