And the dust returns to the earth as it was, and the spirit returns to God who gave it.
Alice Faye Young was the only daughter born to the late Irma Lee Smith and Henry Scott on July 4, 1941.
She peacefully departed this life for her heavenly home on April 23, 2019.
Alice Faye was a loving and devoted mother of five, grandmother of six, and great grandmother of nine children. She enjoyed an active role in the lives of her family and friends. She is known for her strength, independence, friendly smile, and flair for fashion. Alice Faye was someone you could count on. She embodied the compassion of Christ as she cared for and assisted others. Her life even during her illness was one of hope and determination.
She accepted Christ as a young mother and was baptized by the Reverend Huey P. Lawson of Mt. Calvary Baptist Church. Greater Live Oak Missionary Baptist Church was her church home. Alice's favorite biblical verse was Psalm 23. She enjoyed cooking, backyard barbeques, spending time with her loved ones and decorating herself and home for every holiday. Her favorite past time was sitting on her front porch and speaking to everyone. Alice retired from the Rapides Parish School Board after serving 28 years at South Alexandria Elementary School/ Sixth Grade Center. Nothing pleased her more than feeding others!
